I am thrilled to let you know the donations fully cover the cost of the supplies and, that the bags and candles have been ordered! We had donations ranging from $5 to 50. Thanks for this great response.
So rest up for the volunteer part. It's lots of fun. Just show up - if any of the following works for you.
Here is the schedule:
DEC 23 - 1-3 Meet at the house closest to you:
- Taylors' at 8028 Tipperary Ct N or
- Millers' at 5072 Galway
Volunteers (all ages) will get the bags ready and fill with sand and candle. We will bribe you with the promise of hot chocoate and goodies :)
DEC 24 - 1-3 Meet at same 2 houses to load your trunk/truck with bags and distribute
DEC 24 - 5:30 Light your candles and those of neighbors who may be gone or busy
DEC 25 - Before 10 a.m. Please discard your bags or volunteer to go pick up remaining bags
Should there be any family along the route (Donegal Cliffs, Dunleary, Galway) who does NOT (for any reason) want to have the luminaria in front of their house, please just email me personally.
Again, thanks for supporting the expansion this year. I will provide one more reminder for volunteers in a couple weeks. Let me know if you have any questions.
