Christmas Tree Lot
2018 is the 51st year of our tree lot. It is one of the 3 major fundraisers of CNO. We will unload and sell 1,000 trees in about 15 days. It is a great club showcase opportunity to be involved with the community. Customers mention over and over that it isn’t Christmas until they buy a tree from us.
Phather Phil’s Prayer Heavenly Father, some of us are like tea bags , we have to be put in hot water to see how strong we are. So thank You for friends and companions who offer a hand when we are in need. Comfort when we are sad and words of encouragement when we mess up. As Optimist
Phather Phil’s Prayer Heavenly Father the battle of the sexes has been going on since the beginning of time. Steinem would say women are not equal to men; they are superior and always have been. Then there is the glass ceiling syndrome and equal pay for equal work. And the battle goes on and on.
