Hey everyone!  I hope all is well and you enjoyed the beautiful weather on friday and saturday and are safely curled up at home this evening with some hot beverage.  We enjoyed ourselves immensely.  We had the opportunity to see one of our favorite bands Big Shot when they were featured at a fundraiser locally.  We had a great time and I ‘d like to give a shout out to the people of Beth Or for being so welcoming to us and showing us how to party down!  Thanks for sharing and good luck to Rabbi Axel!

On another note, Saturday we went shoe shopping for my husband and had a reward card for $10 off and sure enough we found a pair he liked on sale and with our reward card saved $20!  But the biggest piece of information I picked up was about a program they participate in called Shoe Box Project.  This program provides support for the men and women of the armed services; Marines, Navy, Coast Guard, Army, Airforce.  When you bring in your used shoes (any brand, from any store or manufacture, as long as there are no holes or worn thru bottoms), they can be dirty and old as long as the condition is good.  The store collects your shoes and sends them out to the USO who cleans and repairs and then sells the shoes.  The proceeds go to the purchase of clean socks and shoes for our service personnel!  I love supporting companies who support our armed forces plus I actually get something back as well.  The store, Famous Footwear; will give me $10 off my next purchase of $50 or more.  Even better!  This will probably be most helpful to those of you with families who go through shoes quickly.  I thought this was great regardless.  Hopefully it is helpful to you.  Have a great week all!
