The Best Present Ever!
I am tapping my feet and looking at my watch as I try to do some paperwork at my desk. The truth of the matter is that I can’t wait to go downstairs in 34 minutes (and counting) to the best craft fair of the year. Students from Latham School have made beautiful hand-made gifts that I love giving as presents. That would be enough for me—giving a hand-made item to someone I care about. It doesn’t end there though. The generosity of the Latham students means the total proceeds from the craft fair will go to a local charity. For 2012, they voted to contribute their earnings to the Cape Cod Times Needy Fund. So, the reality is my purchase is really moving on, not only as a gift to someone I care about, but will be a gift to someone in need. As I said, The Best Present Ever! I am so very proud of their hard work, artistic talent and generosity.
