One of the great things about living in this area is the generosity of the people. Metro proved this once again with Sue Stultz's annual turkey drive. Once again everyone pulled together and smashed the number of turkeys she needed. This year Sue collected 4464 turkeys for families in the area and for the local food banks. Incredible!
Sue is owed a big THANK-YOU for this on going effort but a big "two thumbs way up" for the people of Metro Moncton for making this happen.
I want to make mention of the special effort of the members of Greater Moncton Real Estate Board who donated 67 turkeys from the proceeds of some auctions, raffles and 50/50 draws at our membership meetings. These REALTORS, contrary to what a particular company likes to say in the media, do a tremendous amount of volunteer work and make huge contributions to our community very quietly and with little fan fare. Just a bunch of "Joe Schmoes" out there helping to make our communities better. In the next few days, I will be blogging about all of the things that local REALTORS have done in 2009 to help out the less fortunate in our communities.
