2017 Beale AFB Baby Shower

Leave a comment

Cory Moore, one of our Chapter’s longest Blanketeers (since we opened in 2005!), manned the Project Linus table at the 2017 Beale AFB Baby Shower on Saturday.

Cory was in charge of distributing blankets to parents-to-be or military families who have had a child within the last year.  Our Nevada County Chapter donated blankets to this event, as well as other goodies (see photos below) donated by our dedicated and supportive Blanketeers.

Photos, taken by Cory, are here:

You do not need to establish a Dropbox account to view these photos.  There are photos of the blankets donated by our Chapter as well as general photos of the event.  This is the third year of the Beale Baby Shower and the second year our Nevada County Chapter has participated.

In the 12 years we’ve been coordinating the Nevada County Chapter, I can honestly say this is the most appreciative group of people we’ve worked with.  Each person we came in contact with thanked us profusely and were genuinely grateful for our support and the donations we provided—-to the point of “goosebumps”, “lump in my throat” and teary eyes (I witnessed the tears when we delivered!).

Thank you seems pretty trite in light of the response we received from our dedicated Blanketeers but know it’s a very sincere thank you.  Your support was appreciated beyond words!

A Local Thank You!

We received the following thank you note from very grateful parents.  Names have been concealed for privacy.  Please note, these parents have been advised that all credit for the blanket received is due to our Blanketeers who work tirelessly to support our Chapter and the children of Nevada County.  Thank you Project Linus Nevada County Blanketeers—this note is for you!
