LET'S REMEMBER THE REASON FOR THE SEASON!
Tell me the story of Jesus,
Write on my heart every word;
Tell me the story most precious,
Sweetest that ever was heard!
Tell how the angels, in chorus,
Sang as they welcomed His birth,
Glory to God in the highest!
Peace and good tidings to earth!
December is upon us...much hussle and bussle to prepare for the year's end in Foxysden!
We have lots we are doing this month for our Foxys!
We have a Christmas Tree Contest, a Christmas website, Christmas recipes, Christmas movies, a Christmas Marathon, and so much more!
We have staff and members to recognize for the month, awards to be given, Christmas cards to get out...
Wow, makes me tired just thinking about all the scurry of the season!
The best way I know to make each day a good and enjoyable day is to awake each day thanking God for another day, ask Him to lead and guide our day, put words on our lips that will uplift and Bless, help us to use wisdom in all that we do, and above all, give Him the Honor and Glory and Praise that He so deserves!
Then turn and face the day with love and direction in our hearts.
At the end of the day, before we go to sleep, Thank God for His many Blessings, His Presence throughout the day, and all that you have accomplished through our Lord.
Remember to lift a prayer for all those who are sick, need financial help, need strength in their bodies, ones who just need a special Touch from the Lord!
Then we can lay our heads on our pillow and say, "What a Beautiful and Blessed day I have had!"
Cris, Joe and I would like to recognize some Foxys for a job well done in November. All of you have helped make this league the #1 league in the land. There are a few that have done exceptional and have given their talent and time generously.
The first person we would like to thank and award is a lady who has such a loving and thankful heart and one who always wishes everyone good luck in tours and is very polite to all with a thank you, and you are welcome! She has done an excellent job in helping ones who are interested in our league, explaining where to go register and answer questions for them, getting them through the process and on their way to being part of the Foxy Family!
Mrs B (Sandy), we thank you and are honored to award you with the "Staff of the Month" Award.
You are a Blessing to the Den!
This next person we have chosen to award for November is a woman who has been very faithful in jumping tours and being a great support to the players. She has a heart of gold and willingness to do for the league.
The HAs would like to present the "Members Award" to Judy!
Thank you for all you do and for your heart hun!
This next award goes to a person of the league who gives their heart and time in helping over and above the call of their position. This person exceeds all expectations in their giving!

Hanukka, also known as Chanukah, is a Jewish holiday called the Festival of Lights observed by the kindling of the lights of a unique candelabrum, the nine-branched Menorah or Hanukiah, one additional light on each night of the holiday, progressing to eight on the final night.
The typical Menorah consists of eight branches with an additional raised branch. The extra light is called a shamash and is given a distinct location, usually above or below the rest.
The purpose of the shamash is to have a light available for use, as using the Hanukkah lights themselves is forbidden.
Hanukkah is observed for eight nights and days, starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar, which may occur at any time from late November to late December in the Gregorian calendar.
This year, 2012, Hanukkah will be celebrated from sunset December 8th through the 16th.
We would like to wish the Jewish members of Foxysden a very happy and joyous HANUKKAH!
Cris, Joe, Key and Staff wish you a very safe and enjoyable month!
Take some quality time for the Reason for the Season!
God Bless you Every One!
