Meadow Vista Friendly Neighbors Fundraising 2017

By Cathy Williams, Meadow Vista Friendly Neighbors

Winter is fast approaching and the Friendly Neighbors Club is in full swing with fund raising events that support our annual Christmas Basket and Toy Program, which is the club's major project. 
With the generous help of the Meadow Vista Lion's Club, the Pancake Breakfast, held on November 4th at Placer Hills School was a great success!  Despite the inclement weather, the Lions cooked eggs to order, pancakes and sausage.  More than 85 members of the Meadow Vista community braved the rain and enjoyed the breakfast!  Thank you Lions for your continuing support of the Friendly Neighbors!
Harjinder Kaur and Gurcharan “Bill” Singh of the Meadow Vista Mountain Mike's Pizza  hosted a Family Pizza Night on Friday, November 10th.  A portion of the sale of pizzas was donated to the Friendly Neighbors Club in support of the Christmas Basket and Toy Program.  When I walked into the restaurant at 6:05 in the evening, the whole restaurant was packed with patrons all enjoying pizzas!  A wonderful turn-out!  Again, thank you to our community and Harajinder and Bill for their continued support!
Mark your calendar for late afternoon and early evening on December 15th (Friday) to assist with the packing of the Christmas Baskets at Sierra Hills School.  It's a great way to give back to the community and very much appreciated!
      Luncheon meetings are held the 4th Wednesday of each month at the Faith Luthern Church on Combie Road in Meadow Vista .  New members and guests are welcome.  There is no charge for the luncheon.  For further information contact Cathy Williams at 878-6843 or Gerry Hinkle at 878-6117.  Additional information can be found at our new website:  Our mailing address is  P.O.
