A Surprise for Cecil

There we were watching the TV, relaxing after a bowl of homemade Broccoli soup and toasted Raisin bread..and the door bell rings...as I scrambled for my robe Cecil went to the door...came back with this Bouquet SURPRISE! SURPRISE!
The bouquet was from the Citizens Club of Franklin Township, Somerset, New Jersey. of which Cecil was a member for over 30 years and served as President for quite a few of them...If you do a close up you can read the note attached. It was very heart warming to him to receive it...you never know when someone, somewhere will appreciate something you did a long time ago..and I will say beyond a doubt  "He made a difference"!

"We can never forget your contribution to the Citizens club of Frankln Township"   said on the card.

UPDATE: We were so overwhelmed we needed a moment to catch our breath! we wish to say to the members of the Citizens Club..Thank You and God Bless!

Some surprises really are a surprise and also welcome!

What a blessing that must have been. PTL that they thought enough to express their thanks, so many groups don't often take the time to appreciate the people who help them.

Made both your days I bet!, It surely would mine :o)

Blessings for your Reserrection Day

What a nice surprise to get - unexpected ones are the best type!
I lived very close to Franklin Township and also in Somerset COunty in SOmerville, NJ. This certainly is a small world.

Hey Lauren, (cake), yes there were differences made,When your father and Aunt were in the School marching band Grandpa was President of the Band Parents Association and served faithfully, now many never knew he ever existed.
