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)":

Dear Carol,

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.
 
Friday, March 22, 2013
 

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
NNHS Class of 1965

    Thank you so very much, Sweetie-Pies!

   C'mon, Typhoon Nation - y'all know what to do!

   From Malcolm Davis ('65) of VA - 04/13/13, 3:33 PM - "     Jamey (Douglas) Bacon ('66 - of VA) Mission Project":

Contributions are now at $705.00
There will be showers of blessings no doubt!

Liberty Song

Words by John Dickison *, 1778
Tune - "Heart of Oak"
 

Come, join hand in hand, brave Americans all,
And rouse your bold hearts at fair Liberty's call;
No tyrannous acts shall suppress your just claim,
Or stain with dishonor America's name.

Chorus
In Freedom we're born and in Freedom we'll live.
Our purses are ready. Steady, friends, steady;
Not as slaves, but as Freemen our money we'll give.

Our worthy forefathers, let's give them a cheer,
To climates unknown did courageously steer;
Thro' oceans to deserts for Freedom they came,
And dying, bequeath'd us their freedom and fame.

Chorus

The tree their own hands had to Liberty rear'd,
They lived to behold growing strong and revered;
With transport they cried, Now our wishes we gain,
For our children shall gather the fruits of our pain.

Chorus

Then join hand in hand, brave Americans all,
By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall;
In so righteous a cause let us hope to succeed,
For heaven approves of each generous deed.

Chorus

In Freedom we're born and in Freedom we'll live.
Our purses are ready. Steady, friends, steady;
Not as slaves, but as Freemen our money we'll give.
