RAK Request

A huge thank you to Deborah for suggesting this (see her comment under my last post).

I'd like to request that anyone who wishes to send a thank you card to our local fire department for fighting our fire do so. There were approximately 20 firefighters at our home, almost all of whom were volunteers. I'm in awe over how hard they tried to save our home...and it made me cry when some of them came over to me after and apologized for not being able to save anything. Those guys and gal were amazing.

If you want to personalize it, our name is Kostis and the fire was at 816 Smith Line of St. Clair Township.

Thank you cards can be sent to:

Beecher Fire Department
c/o Doug McGee
Wallaceburg, ON
N8A 4L2

Thank you in advance everyone, and especially Deborah for the great idea! Deborah, if you are reading this, could you please send me your contact info? I don't know how to get in touch with you, and would like to!

What a great idea! I'll have mine in the mail in the next few days! Bless you all!

I read this on Debby's blog and will be happy to send out a card. I'm just in Sarnia. I have a kitchen table with two chairs (it is big enough for five chairs) if you could use it. I can dig around for other items too, but unfortunately I gave so much to Good Will this past spring. Contact me at

I've also put your RAK request onto my blog. I will be sending them a card as well. Let me know if you'd like to pop over and stamp together.
Your Friend,

Marla, you won some blog candy on my site! I had planned on sending you a little something through Alesha - would you like me to just send your blog candy there too? Let me know. The email I'm using for that blog candy is:

Thanks! Hope to hear from you soon! So glad you won! :) Hope you enjoy your goodies!
