December 1, 2019 VP Salen RequestBrothers and Sisters,My daughter Kimberly, is a social worker at an elementary school in Calvert County. Every year she coordinates the angel tree for the kids in her school. last year they had over 83 children on the angel tree. Although Rick and I sponsor kids each year, this year there is a 5th grade boy that has some very unique requests on his list. My daughter would really like to see every child have something they asked for to open on Christmas morning.This young man is a huge history buff and has asked for World War II memorabilia, vintage Coca Cola items and antiques in general. The WWII memorabilia I have is my Dads from his service with USMC and I do not want to part with it.He has specifically stated he DOES NOT want electronics or games. I was hoping that with our combined efforts we might be able to fulfill his wish. If you have anything you would be interested in contributing, please let me know. Thank you so much Diane**
