Thank you everyone who made ‘Make A Difference Day’ a success

I want to thank everyone who makes every day a “Make a Difference Day” in Black Diamond.

I want to thank everyone who makes every day a “Make a Difference Day” in Black Diamond. Thanks to the Mountain View Fire Department (Black Diamond Station) and Jeff & Andre who take our blood pressures every Thursday at the Black Diamond Community Center before the Senior lunch time. A special thanks to Andrew Irvine for providing me with an American flag and holder, out of his own pocket, installing it and changing the batteries in the smoke detectors and light bulbs in my house.

Thank you, Cheryl, Leslie, & Irene and volunteers at the Black Diamond Community Center for serving the Seniors on Tuesday & Thursday with great lunches and wonderful fun fellowship during and after the lunches.

Thank you, Becky Olness & her helpers for making snack bags for the Elementary School children. Thanks to Ron Olness who takes such fine pictures at events and shares them for all to enjoy.

Thanks, to the High Road Church for serving hot delicious meals every Wednesday night at the church.

I’m so grateful for these folks and others who make every day in Black Diamond a Make a Difference Day.
