As off this morning Gordon and I have raised CAN …$ 932.00 for the CDA and it is not even my BD yet …AND with 5 confirmed guests from Vancouver, BC …a 6 hour drive to PARTY with us ; UP to GO .A good place to pitch a tent on our property , as long as we remember to shut off our sprinkler system , ha, ha .

Gordon and especially I in total awe …we are so close to $ 2,500.00 today , July 30 . our goal has been upped !
What a tremendous response and support to help end diabetes …actually 6 guests from Vancouver area , incl our grandson Kyle …was not into tenting ; the first night the coyotees were calling him…
