THE SECOND STORY | May 6th, 2021

They came, they met, they shredded, they left FEELING GOOD!

Even Ben Franklin was smiling! 

(This was a promotional item that I received in the mail this week:

a pair of sox. What’s up with that?) 

The Shredding Party, last Saturday, was terrific! It was a sunny Saturday, with lots of smiles and a boat-load of kindness. 

I can only say thanks to all of you who participated. We were able to give a total of $6574 to Alameda Meals on Wheels.

I waited until today to turn in the $$$$ because I was receiving more checks from folks. That amount may change upward, should the last check show up.

What’s amazing, is that one of my friends works at a company that encourages donations to worthy causes. That company will match his check, once they see the proof that the check is deposited. 

AMOW says thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I arrived in Alameda in 1973, as a new bride...with husband Carl Schumacher, both of us from Newport Beach. He was embarking on his career as a Naval Architect (i.e. yacht designer) under Gary Mull. Please see the 'ABOUT ME' page in this website! to see how it has all turned out! I'm so blessed!
