Small Business Saturday: November 26th!
Dave Johnson is preparing for another "Playing for the Pantry " small business Saturday on November 26. He and I will be visiting 10 businesses that day. He is scheduled to be on the Lori Moore Show on CW 7 the Wednesday before.
Last year, Eleanor's Pantry received around $1800 in donations as a result of this event! We are totally blown away by the generosity of so many people! Thank you all for your donations!
Thanks to all of the businesses that participated last year!

Thanks to every one of you who came out to see me and made donations! It was sure good to see you all!
Thanks to Nellie De Long for sticking it out with me again this year. Nellie made phone calls, sent emails, booked each venue, handed out literature, brought me water, kept me on schedule, and kept me smiling through the whole thing from beginning to end! She's a ninja and a rock star for all of her efforts! I couldn't ask for a better roadie!
Gratitude, everyone! Happy holidays!
