No in-person Leprechaun Hunt event this year! Every year the hunt has always been a great success! Of course because of COVID-19 we had to cancel it. It has always been a producer of great support for Sharing Meadows

We just recently finished up a raffle in the name of the Leprechaun Hunt so that next year’s event will come back and be bigger and better than ever! We were worried… but you people are tremendous!!! The raffle as of 7/15 has brought in about $100,000 and continues to grow!!!

He, I am sure, realizes the great need for what Sharing Meadows is accomplishing! He has planted in many of you generous hearts when it comes to Share Foundation. Come for a visit some time to see for yourselves what is being accomplished here at Sharing Meadows.

Thank you very much for your support, especially of the Leprechaun Hunt raffle! 

THOUGHTS FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

My friends are incredibly resilient people. The Villagers have taken this entire pandemic step by step and have been so understanding with the different policies and procedures that I have set in place. I cannot thank them enough for their kindness to me these last months. While of course, the pandemic seems far from over, the burden of leadership is lessoned when you have incredible friends who believe in you.

That is what friendship is all about, right? When you need a smile the most, they are there beaming with support and love. The Villagers have been a true blessing to my life. With this newsletter going out to 10,000 homes and businesses and with how successful our Leprechaun Hunt raffle has been, I can see how many friends the Villagers have. Thank you for believing in them.

A few weeks ago, I was feeling the pressure of leadership so I decided to take a walk around the property. Those of you who have been out here before know how peaceful and beautiful of a walk that must have been! Along that walk, I passed by a few Villagers on their bikes. They waved and smiled and yelled out to me hello with great big smiles on their faces! What may seemed like a simple little interaction reminded me of the incredible opportunities we give our Villagers at Sharing Meadows.

We have so many activities throughout the year at Sharing Meadows but what matters most are the friendships that are created on the grounds. I have asked myself how are the Villagers so resilient during these trying times? The answer to that is they have support around them. I don’t know about you, but I do not live around 29 of my closest friends. They look out for each other and they are there for each other during trying times. This pandemic is a breeze to them. Why? They have love and support of each other.

I am beyond grateful for the support you all have given our friends, especially during the Leprechaun Hunt Raffle Campaign. You have exceeded my expectations and I am so grateful for your friendship. Our community is a gift to the world, and your support allows us to continue on far in to the future. So thank you, from all of us here at Sharing Meadows, for always looking out for us and being our friends.
