Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
This observance is supposed to repeat every year.....
REMINDER #1 - SPECIAL REQUEST:
From Malcolm Davis ('65) of VA - 04/09/13, 8:47 AM - "Special request concerning Jamey (Douglas) Bacon ('66 - of VA)":
Because of your Typhoon newsletter, that has previously alerted all of your readers to Jamey's medical and fiscal needs in the past, Polly Norris Davis - '65) and I have been helping Jamey and getting to know her more personally and seeing just how great her needs are. Thank you for making us aware.
It is now my request to ask for financial assistance from our classmates and your readers as we try to provide Jamey with improvements for her driveway so that she can maneuver her motorized wheelchair outdoors without getting stuck in the ground or thrown from her chair. Jamey wishes to fill in the center of the driveway and because of her home being located in Hilton, she must use brick to accomplish the project or it will not be approved.
I have measured the area and priced the brick paving stone. She will need 288 sq. feet of the brick and that will cost $655.44 retail at Lowe's. She will also need 3 yards of crushed stone and 1 yard of sand which I have not priced yet. I am seeking to have the Peninsula Baptist Summer Youth Work Camp take this on as a mission project in July. This could hold down the cost for labor if the city and the community will allow them to do the work. If not, we will need to purchase the labor from a contractor.
I have permission to set up an account at my church, Parkview Baptist Church, to receive any contributions and also to afford us sales tax exempt status when purchasing the materials from this account. An additional 5% discount will be afforded by using the church credit card when making the purchase. You may also deduct the contribution that you make on your income tax returns.
I am seeking contributions now to make this mission a reality. This is a real need. Jamey's quality of life would be enhanced by this improvement to her home and yard. She is an amputee and is completely dependent on her wheelchair for mobility.
Anyone wishing to contribute to this project is asked to make a check out to Parkview Baptist Church and mail it to Malcolm and Polly Davis at 118 Cindy Circle, Newport News, Va. 23602. I will turn the checks over to the church and keep everyone informed, through your news letter, of the running balance of the contributions received and their ultimate disposition. The names of those who contribute will be kept private and I am hoping that enough individuals will be willing to contribute at least $10.00 so we can raise enough to complete the job even if we have to hire a contractor to install the bricks. Please note on the check that this is for the "Jamey Bacon Mission Project."
Here are some pictures of the driveway in its present condition.

Thank you all for considering this request for assistance. Your participation will be a blessing for Jamey and she is grateful for your concern always.
Sincerely, Malcolm and Polly Davis

commented: 'Among other things, ice-creams were produced in the
form of balls of the frozen material inclosed in covers of warm
pastry, exhibiting a curious contrast, as if the ice had just
been taken from the oven.' "
