WE STAYED IN A SKI CHALET CALLED MARTIN LUTHER. BOB AND I SPENT A LOT OF TIME SWINGING FROM A LARGE ROPE LIKE TARZAN. I .ALWAYS WANTED TO FLY AND I FINALLY GOT MY "THRILL OF A LIFETIME • 11 MIKE, MOM AND I WENT ON A LONG HIKE FRIDAY MORNING. WE DISCOVERED CABINS: ONE, 1WO AND THREE. AFTER WANDERING ON THE TRAILS WE FINALLY CAME TO DEEP COVE LOOKOUT AND THE HIGHWAY. THE VIEW FROM THE LOOKOUT WAS FANTASTIC. THE AFTERNOON WAS SPENT DECORATING THE HALL AND OUR COOKS WERE BUSY PREPARING THE TURKEY DINNER. OUR BAND AND GUESTS FINALLY ARRIVED. CINDY CARSON,STARTED THE HOEDOWN BY CALLING FOR THE VIRGINIA REEL. BESIDES THE BAND WE HAD OPEN STAGE AND I REALLY ENJOYED SINGING THERE. WE CAME HOME EXHAUSTED AND BADLY IN NEED OF A SHOWER. LIVING IN A CITY MAKES US TAKE THINGS FOR GRANTED. I I I I I I I I I • 1-- ------------------------ 15 16 17 N . I--' N The llusiness of Volunteering: by "Tora"; They say, "lf it doesn't make any money - it's not a business, right?ft • ••• But how many are in the business of volunteering? It it doesn't make any money - there must be some other reason why you do it •••• Why you work for nothing. Maybe you're working for everything and isn't that just what Capitalism was supposed-to do? - Work for everything, and everyone? Instead of ,:making huge profits for the chosen few? So, Volunteering is a business that doesn't make any money. If you have a skill or several skills and you give them free to the community, in work of your own choice, you are, technically, a businessperson doing business in the community, but not making money - • One way of looking at it, is to see that this represents a step in the transformation of Capitalism from a system of production for private sector profit into a non-profit, public sector system of community co-operation for mutual benefit. In this way we are doing a few small but important things to help create the kind of community we all need - one that places mutual self-help above profit motivation.

ALWAYS AYING GOODBYE Railroad stations, midnight trains Lonely airport in the rain And somebody stands with tears in their eyes It's the same old scene time after time I -I l That's the trouble with all mankind, somebody's always saying goodbye ' Taxi cabs leaving in the night, greyhound buses, big red lights ; Someone's leaving, someone's left behind ; But I don't know how things get that way Yet every place you look these days !

This is a beautiful historical input and people who are people. Patricia Kendall, Tom Lewis and myself (Katherine Galan). Three days were put in by this great crew, who were concerned to have all others happy and satisfied in the work they did voluntarily; from 9 a . m. til all hours . The Thanksgiving Dinner was a success : Hip-Hip-Hooray! Thank-you, tall blonde Roy Hodges - the decorating of the theatre was great . Thank-you, Peter Golletz, for a clean pot-washer. Harvey Bowers, thank-you , for serving out the food in our food service line. You; Eddie Eagle Base, Tim Dairon , Senior's vice-president - Norman; Thank-you, all of you were with us from the start. Next, thanks to all who supported the Dinner by Blessing Children with their cash. This success also belongs to you (No fun when no one is around to banter). 3llOA•}.13]1N010A ~ r-e: :z -I .,, rr, ~ < 0 -n IT1 .......... We had no time for ambulances as no Doctor would attend Knife-wielding cooks. Band-aids were serviced by Dr. Peache who caused one of us to Bleed nigh on to death. Pat Kendall was Number 1 casualty, I was number 2. I stayed long enough to have the suppers out. There was a choice that was there to tempt you into eating Turkey and trimmings, and Harn and trimmings. By the way I'd like to thank Danny Korica for his roll 'em up sleeve job; Well done! I knew you could dQ it. May that day ( of Thanksgiving) give you all Blessings and Thanks for the year that passed. Love you all, with great admiration to the Volunteers.
