- First, spirits were high on Saturday night at That’s Life – A Bone Dance 2009! You may have been there: setting up, tearing down, greeting guests, taking photos, selling raffle tickets, watching a silent auction table, helping to check in or out, singing BEAUTIFULLY (Clarence, Jimmy and SPOKES, Jennifer, Meghan), placing memories on the altar, sharing with new or old friends, dancing gently or wildly, celebrating, loving. . . You may have been unable to attend, but sent your love, silent auction items, good wishes, sponsorship, prayers, or a donation. Whether there or not there, you all have been important to the dance being a brilliant success; for this, I give thanks. On behalf of those we serve, I offer deep gratitude for the team work and passion that flows into this mission-related, beautiful celebration of life and the lives of those remembered. Extra special thanks to Leilani for her amazing effort in filling tables with her loved ones.
- We wish to again thank the Arizona Community Foundation, and Flagstaff Community Foundation collaborators (The Forest Highlands Foundation and Flagstaff Medical Center) for grant awards that will help us to fund the “Caring Naturally-TLC for Caregivers” program in 2010.
- Lastly, on October 27th the Flagstaff Planning and Zoning Board approved the conditional use permit for Wayne’s House with a unanimous vote. The permit is for five years! What a blessing for those we will serve.
In Gratitude, Aleia
