We Are Grateful…

  • to all the Glebe families who filled 60 (!!!) baskets this year and hats off to the kids who helped wheel them all in last Friday morning!

  • to Tara Blankinship, Julie Madison, Frances McLaughlin, Lauren Barber, Robin and Alex Boyajy, and Beronica Salas for all their hard work for the Thanksgiving Food Basket Brigade this year and to the Cherrydale Safeway Manager, Ed, who drove to Reston to secure 60 turkeys for us to include in the baskets!  These folks worked hard for days to get these baskets collected, stored, and distributed.
