Gwen came up with some great pizza turkeys too but Monika wouldn’t let her use them in the Cardinal Weekly. So they are now taped to our office window. 😂

And- we are signed up to go!

I love the St John Chrysostom Church "Eat Pizza!" turkey! Cindy Michaels Drennan

Wow. Were at 200 bags thanks to all of your generosity! Thanks so very much to all of you who stepped up to help. Jenny Murray, Elizabeth Adams, and Laura Billiard were indispensable today. But *many* of you helped! Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!❤
