Today I went to the Beacon to ring the bell for the Salvation Army with other red hatters. Boy was it cold. It took me 2 hours under the electric blanket to thaw out. We had a great time even in the cold wind. We took in about 50 dollars in a two hour period and the other ladies did well also. We were there from 8 a m until 7 p m. It will be interesting to see just how much the total will be. We wore our red pants and purple sweat shirts and santa hats. It was really interesting to see who was willing to give. The ones you would least expect to have anything to give were the ones who consistantly donated.
