Let It Snow!
~ Sammy Cahn, Jule Styne (c) 1945

Oh, the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful,
And since we’ve no place to go,
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

It doesn’t show signs of stopping,
And I brought some corn for popping;
The lights are turned way down low,
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

When we finally say good night,
How I’ll hate going out in the storm;
But if you really hold me tight,
All the way home I’ll be warm.

The fire is slowly dying,
And, my dear, we’re still good-bye-ing,
But as long as you love me so.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

4. Remember Local Needs for Year-end Giving

Christmas.Ornament.Gifts, large or small, support our local nonprofits which are providing services that benefit our county communities. Charitable foundation board members need to know that local folks value and support our organizations applying for grant funding! If you are thinking about a tax-deductible gift, give to one of our local nonprofits! Win-win!

If you are wondering what to give a person, give to a local tax deductible non-profit organization in their honor!

to HONOR someone with a shared interest, birthday or anniversary

to RECOGNIZE success or achievement

in MEMORY of someone who cared

to THANK someone for exceptional service

or – rather than material gifts – to someone who has everything.
