Since I have creative reins on this here blog, I thought this week we would devote our pictures to the Newton County Christmas for Kids Chili Cookoff and Silent Auction. Is that okay with you? I hope so because I’m doing it anyway. Remember that the Newton County Christmas for Kids is a non-profit organization run solely on donations to help make a better Christmas for the less fortunate kids of Newton County and that’s where we come in… and we as in all of us. Those who volunteer time, donations, presents, money, whatever. This morning KSN was here doing a news story on our organization and they interviewed Dan La Due as he’s part of one of the organizations involved. They asked him how he feels helping and I liked his answer and bear with me as I paraphrase but he said he gets goosebumps every year he helps make a better Christmas for children. I like that. And because Lee Lake is messing with me… I guess I’ll leave you with pictures now. Blame him.
