From the Desk of Father Blaney
Much of March is Lent, a prep for Easter; the memorial of Christ’s saving action! It’s a time to renew our prayer life. The prayerful reading of scriptures should help us to hear God’s words to us. God wants to be in union with us. His union with us is to be able to love each of us more.
God’s love for us is outstanding! The more we realize even a little of that love, the greater our joy in life! Whenever we receive a gift, e.g. Christmas time, etc, we gain also a joy in our hearts. Together, God the Father and Christ, our Savior, and the Holy Spirit present us with many gifts of love, many times of helping us. Our hearts should be full of Thanksgiving.

Thoughts from the Executive Director by Bill Harmon
The pandemic has caused a lot of disruption in our residential program at Sharing Meadows. One of the greatest disruptions has been the social life of the Villagers. We have a saying around here, “The Villagers have a better social life than us.” This is so true. Year round, they are invited to parties at local high schools, go to dances at the camps, and go bowling every Friday night. Out of all of the COVID-19 restrictions we have in place at Share Foundation, the Villagers not being able to leave the property much has been the most difficult.
On Christmas Day I was on the phone with my brother wishing him a Merry Christmas. He randomly mentioned, “You know what would be awesome? If you rented out the movie theater for the Villagers so they can see a movie!” I paused and thought to myself, what a brilliant idea! Thanks, Chris, for mentioning it!
The weekend of the Super Bowl, the Villagers were able to go on an outing to see the movie “Abominable!” We split the Villagers up by village to keep our pandemic protocol, and sent them to the movies! Right now, movie theaters allow you to rent out an entire theatre auditorium so that you and your family can safely watch a movie together outside of your home with a maximum of 20 people. For a price of around $100-$200, we can rent out the theatre in order to not only keep our Villagers safe from the outside world, but allow them to go out again and enjoy the social life that we have always promised them from the day they moved in.
They had so much fun being together again outside of the property of Sharing Meadows! I loved hearing about the popcorn they bought and all of the candy they consumed. It was a breath of fresh air and made things seem a little bit like normal. It was a nice reminder that while we may not be living in “normal times,” however we can still get creative in order to increase our friend’s quality of life.
Currently, we plan to have a movie outing once a month to allow the Villagers to get out of their homes and spend time with each other while doing something meaningful and enjoyable together. I am incredibly excited for this opportunity and my friends here at Share are even more so! You, our incredible supporters, make this opportunity for them. Your contributions give us the opportunity to bring joy to the lives of our friends. It is you, with your continued generosity, that allow us to treat our Villagers during these difficult times. THANK YOU!!
If you would like to sponsor their next movie, or maybe even some popcorn for them to enjoy, please send in your gift and in the memo of the check write, “Villager Movie.” Thank you, so much, for your support in helping us provide these outings for our Villagers and for allowing us to continue the dream.

Memorials are a special way to honor the memory of a loved one or to celebrate a special occasion for ourselves, our family, or our friends. We are grateful for all memorial donations, large and small, that we receive. We would like to remind you that our policy is that thank you letters and acknowledgment cards are not sent for any memorials received that are less than $10.00 per name. They will be printed in the GOOD NEWS but no cards or letters will be sent. Due to the increasing cost of paper, postage and time to send cards and letters, it is not good stewardship to spend the donations you have entrusted to us to fill mailboxes with mail.
Memorial donations of $10.00 or more per name will continue to be handled with a thank you letter acknowledgment to family and listing in the newsletter. If you do not require a thank you letter, please mark the envelope so that we can code your account and we can save the cost of a letter and use the funds for our programs for other-abled people. Thank you for your understanding!
Just a friendly reminder that all memorials are due by the 15th of each month in order to be printed in the following month’s GOOD NEWS. For example, if you want to have a memorial printed in the April issue, your memorial needs to arrive in our office by March 15th . Share Foundation has a deadline to meet as well with our printer and if we do not have your memorial by the 15th of each month, your memorial will be delayed an additional month. Thank you for your understanding!
