Happy Dollars 
Gary Miller was happy to be going (with wife Debbie who was also at the meeting) to Rochester, NY, to see one daughter Next week he goes to Louisiana to see their other daughter who is moving back to CT.
Steve Morris was happy to announce that the FAVARH gala made over $100,000! This was quite an accomplishment.
Sarah Leathers gave $10, because she was so happy to see her son in Barcelona. She also checked off one item on her bucket list - making a TedX talk.
Salin Low was happy to have helped with the FAVARH Christmas party. Other Rotarians pictured are Kurt Lux, Dale Bronson, and some guy named Don who shows up as Santa every year. Hank Frey and Linda Pendergast also helped set up. It was a fun evening!
Alicia Canning was happy to have gone with daughter Sarah to Las Vegas, one of the things on Sarah's bucket list.
Peter Vignati was happy that his brother John has been approved for a bone marrow transplant at Dana Farber in Boston. John has a rare form of leukemia.
Josh Gillooly was happy about a great TOTV meeting (we can buy tickets this week, a great Christmas gift!). He was also happy to have cooked pancakes at the Canton Breakfast with Santa.
Jolly Lux was grateful to be back after three weeks in Uganda, although she said it takes awhile to reconnect. The store front shop in Uganda is now open. This allows girls to sell their products, including salt and soap. She thanked the club for their support.
Don Bonner reminded members that their gifts to the Salvation Army could be matched up to $2,250. Give Don a check or let him know if you donated separately. The club's check will be given this Friday on WTIC.
Alicia Canning reminded members about the upcoming bake sale being held by the Canton Interact Club. If you can contribute baked good, have them to Canton High School before 2:20 on either Thursday or Friday. Proceeds will benefit Jolly Lux's Global Light Orphans.
