They also made candy airplanes with community kids at a Salina community event where everyone came out to see Santa and visit the club's tables for activities. CENTRAL FLORIDA CHAPTER Orlando's Central Florida Chapter cele- brated the holiday season with a chap- ter family meal, Christmas games, and gift exchange beside Runway 07/25 at Orlando's Executive Airport (ORL). The highlight of the evening was a visit from Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus (Chapter president Anita Lemmon , WAI 39684). ✈ B eing homeless at 24 with no degree has been hard to get on my feet and it's been very humbling, but I'm optimistic about my future. So the real reason for my email is to express my gratitude for your groups charity work that day. Hearing you guys talk about your travels reminded me of mine and for those two hours I forgot about everything I was going through. I really hope you guys continue to do what your doing, I'm proof that motivation can be delivered in the simplest form (like a home cooked Thanksgiving meal)! Hearing the stories of some of the girls who have had a rough upbringing like mine and now are liv- ing their life to the fullest was inspiring. It was nice to fnally see people who sympathize with us. The sky truly is the limit and fnding your card reminded me of that. I hope you share this with your group so that they can see that all their effort does matter. Thank you on behalf of all the girls at Languille Good Shepherd Center.
