      Ahoy Members and Friends,
      Karen Freitas, Vice President - Youth Programs, has the go ahead to start a new council initiative. She will introduce Toys for Tots at our March 15 meeting.
      Karen is going with a "Drum Theme" to drum up interest. She will pass out a "Drum Card" as a reminder to encourage us to donate throughout the year to the council's program. As we progress she will make "Drum Roll Announcements" as to what we have collected in the way of funds and toys.
      She is modifying a toy drum to collect donations at luncheon meetings - cash, checks, or even drawing tickets (in case you care to be involved in the drawing but would like to donate possible winning tickets to Toys for Tots). She will also have a decorated like a drum laundry basket to put unwrapped toys into. At a future meeting we will donate what is collected to a Toys for Tots San Francisco Bay Area representative.
      She is commended for this initiative. We are fortunate to have her aboard our council and the assistance she offers.
      This growing council welcomes an initiative you may be thinking about and your involvement in the life of the council.
      Heave Ho,
      Phelps Hobart, President
      Pacific Merchant Marine Council, NLUS
      PS We will be presenting Karen a NLUS lapel pin at the March 15 luncheon.
      PSS The Toys for Tots Christmas Club 2010 may interest you in addition to our council "Drum Theme" program.

      Phelps, we count on our Christmas Club members most.
      Will you join today?

      Dear Pacific Merchant Marine Council Members,

      It's easy to forget things.  We've all done it.  Even with the best of intentions, things slip through the cracks because life is...well, busy! 

      But, I know you'd never want a child to feel forgotten on Christmas morning and that's why I'm writing to you again about the importance of the Marine Toys for Tots Christmas Club

      We need more members in the Toys for Tots Christmas Club and I think you'd feel great being part of it.  You see, Christmas Club gifts we receive throughout the year help us take advantage of off-season discounts from our toy suppliers.  And when dollars are stretched, more children can be helped!  

      It's quick and easy to become a Christmas Club member.  Click here to join and then enjoy knowing all year long that you're making a difference in the lives of less fortunate children.  

      Thank you, Navy Leaguers, for taking a few minutes today to help a child feel the hope that comes with an unexpected gift from a stranger and knowing someone cares...someone like you!

      With my deepest thanks,

       Bill Grein
