This Holiday Story was submitted by Beverly German. One of my fsdneot holiday memories that I would like to share with you now Two Christmas's ago, my son was the President of our Lake Association. It was at the December Board Meeting that a vote was passed by a Board of Scrooges , to put a lien on a neighbor's home, for delinquent Association dues. We did not know the lady personally, but had heard stories of her misfortune. She had recently lost her husband to cancer, her home burned to the ground, and she was a single parent with 3 young children, and very little disposable income, living in a makeshift trailer.My son, Christopher, pleaded with the Board to delay any property liens until the Christmas season had passed. The Board remained unmoved at his Christian ideals. With lien paperwork ready to go, the Board voted that the lien be placed on her property December 23rd! Since he could not reverse the Board's vote, (Presidents have no vote) he decided to take the matter into his own hands. He immediately began contacting vendors for donations. He got insulation for her trailer donated by Home Depot, a turkey was donated by Stop and Shop, and food donations were made by various neighbors who had heard of his good deed. A local contractor volunteered to install the insulation and make any immediate repairs the trailer needed, to insure a warm safe Christmas for her and her family. Age appropriate toys and gifts were donated for the whole family and a secret Santa even paid the arrears lien! Food, neighbors and toys all were packed, ear muff to ear muff, into a big, open bed truck. As we drove up the hill to her home, jingle bells were jingling and carolers were singing, as we slowly pulled into her driveway. A procession of about 20 people, like ants in a row, marched up her frozen, snow covered path with boxes, bags and Christmas stocking, loudly singing, We Wish You a Merry Chritstmas . As we all attemepted to pack ourselves into her tiny trailer to dispense our gifts; her surprised face brought tears and smiles to all in the room. At that moment, my son turned to me and with a big warm hug, said, Mom, this is my best Christmas ever . The warm glow of the kind hearted deed followed me for weeks, and gave me yet another reason to be proud and happy with the kind of man my son had turned out to be.May you and yours feel the love and warmth that I have known this holiday season .
