Blast From The Past ~ NGA 2010

I was late getting this posted last night. Instead of posting late when less people would see it I decided to just wait and have it post Wed. morning. 

I decided to post pictures from the NGA Ingathering from last year because this week is NGA Ingathering week. There is a day of sorting new clothing, bedding and some toiletries to give to local Chester County, PA. and then a luncheon the next day where we give the items to local charities. Most of the items are purchased on sale at local stores, some things are new items made by the ladies of NGA.

Rachel in the purple coat...
Christopher behind her.

  We put most of the clothing in bags under the tables, but leave some out for display for Thursday.

 Then we all eat lunch.

The next day the charities that are supported by NGA of Concordville come to a luncheon. After a welcome by Anne, the Concordville branch president, we eat. After lunch each charity is given a chance to update us with what has been going on in the past year. Then we help them load their cars.

Seated at the table on the right hand side are my husband, Court, and Nathan.

We sang at the luncheon last year.

Rachel has a couple of items for NGA this year. I would like to do more next year and have something of my own to take and give to the charities besides my time. I like for my kids to have this experience giving to those less fortunate than us. It also counts for volunteer hours that we have them do for High School. Watch later this week or early next week for pictures from this year's Ingathering.

Now it is your turn.

Here are the Rules for participating:
The purpose of Blast From The Past is to link up a post about something from the past. You can reach back all the way to your childhood and bravely post pictures of you in your wild clothes and hair styles or post something from last year and tell us about it. I'm not picky. Hey, even yesterday was the past... LOL My posts will mostly be about events that happened prior to blogging, as a way to share those things with the world.
  • It can be about you, about your kids, about your parents, about whatever. For ideas check out the other posts in my label Blast From the Past. 
  • Please use a permalink that sends readers directly to the correct post. If you are not sure what that is click the word permalink for an explanation. 
  • Mention my blog and offer a link back to the main page of my blog. This is a requirement to take part and a kind gesture to me your hostess as well as your readers--they will know where to join in the fun, too. You can put the Blast From The Past button on your site and in your post. You will find it on my right sidebar. Please use it to link to my site, to spread the word about my meme. Using the button will help others know how to find me and how to join. Tell others to click on the button in your post to find us here.

This is a good post Wiffy. There are probably many such little known groups out there helping in anyway they can and whose treasures are laid up in heaven. I enjoyed nga. It gives our children an opportunity to serve for the sake of others. I wish everyone could see the benefit of such sacrifice.
