As the temperatures steadily decrease, we see that most wonderful time of the year quickly approaching. Soon, the falling leaves will turn to falling snow and we will find ourselves bundled up in hats, coats, gloves and boots in an effort to evade the chilly air that turns our noses pink. We will hear the melodic voices of Christmas carolers, singing of chestnuts roasting on an open fire, and wishing one another a merry Christmas. We may find ourselves so moved by the warmth of the holiday season and the benevolence that accompanies it that we become compelled to give to others.

This is exactly what we set out to accomplish with our annual Holiday Soiree. Last year, over the course of one lovely evening, over 25 attendees partook in Christmas-time merriment, including but not limited to delicious appetizers and fine coffee beverages, the spinning of some joyous Christmas records, and an abundance of good conversation. We were able to raise $500 for Grace Centers of Hope and we donated bags upon bags of toys to the Northville Civic Concern. None of this would have been possible without the active participation of you—our wonderful customers.

This year, we are shifting our focus to a different organization—Orchard Children’s Services. This organization serves most of Southeast Michigan and provides foster care and adoption, community programs, and family preservation services. Their motto is “strengthening communities one family at a time.” We believe in this organization and what they do for the community which is why we want to feature them this holiday season. In our foyer, you will notice a large box in which you can drop various canned and boxed goods between now and November 17. Also, keep a look out for our Holiday Soiree details very soon.
