Comments and Impressions:
- The old broad is going to brag.
> I have been a member of the shire of Wyvern Cliffe since the Sunday after the very first Toys for Tots. > Granted I took 5 years or so off after Duncan died. > That being said, I am so freaking proud of our members. > No way we could ever put on TFT without a lot of help from across the kingdom. > But tonight watching the floor go down and the lists go up I had one of those moments. > So many members of our tiny shire were out there, on their hands and knees, fitting pads and securing everything with duct tape. > In addition people from across the kingdom were right there beside them. > I am so proud. I felt Duncan and Neihm in that moment. I know he and she are saying it was worth the lean years, when we wondered if we would have enough members to fill.the officer positions. > Thank you "my" sweet shire mates, Auntie Alvira loves you.
