fro Went to a class reunion benefit last night-which I thought was very coolCool Admittance fee went to buy coats/shoes/sweaters [instead of toys] for underprivileged children. Any left over funds will go [as a family-pack-of-four gift card to movies/dinner] to an essay contest citing "what do I want to be when I grow up." They displayed all the essay entrees on a easle-like wall in the lobby area...to view when you're hot from dancing and wanna come out for a little cool breeze from the adjacent opened door. They also had this box in front of the display where you could donate even more MONEY if compelled to. And each time there was donation in this box, the box would light up just like the slot machines in Vegas. I was loving this. What a "cool" and creative idea! It was a hit! Blackfolks would come out in the lobby [a little tipsy] and play with this box [putting money in] just to see it light up and make noise. I call this a "new toy" syndrome. The men as usual were trying to figure out how it worked. It was hoot! And a great conversation piece....AND it was making money big time.{there was a party going on in the lobby and on the dancefloor cuz blackfolks KNOW how to do it right-HAD A BALL cabbage} The distribution of the gifts and announcement of the essay winners is set for December 16th. This was a proud moment for me. Seeing my class STILL doing their "thing" to help the community. Just like the GOOD OLE DAYS when we were young demonstrating against 'whateva the cause/causes was/were at the time. Plus....I have a good looking class. The men with their distinquish grey hair....some profiling their brim hats and suits....there's nothing more pleasing to the eye than a well dressed Black man...OMG! And the women...okay there were those who gained/lost a little weight...but SO WHAT! All were absolutely BEAUTFUL. Cuz all their hearts/souls and compassion are STILL in the community giving... and to me that's a much prettier sight to behold than seeing smaller weightlines on the women or more hair on the heads of men. The current talk around the party tables was to be even more effective and productive for the kids next year! This brought tears to my eyes7 fro
