The Pendulum Society Newsletter (Dec. 2020)

 

Season’s Greetings! I hope this newsletter finds you in merriment, peace, and financially sound. It’s been a tough year for so many and for so long. Not just the disease but the strains that “lockdowns, shutdowns, and little hope” in sight. Humans need interaction. Humans devise strength from being valued and accomplished.

I was reading an article of a mother whose daughter owned a bagel company. Covid-19 killed her, not from having the disease but the circumstances. She committed suicide. As a parent, I couldn’t…I can’t imagine. After losing my friend to suicide, I can personally state suicide is not painless. There is NOTHING that can replace you EVER. I can’t express that enough. My and this mother’s life are forever changed. So, please reach out to me; a member of the BOD, call someone, anyone. Don’t consider it as an option.

On another note, a founding member has passed to The Great Beyond. His Honor has been a staple here, providing guidance, assistance, and “dutchy” advise. The hardest part of writing these words is that he was my Grandfather. At 97, he could run rings around me and school the board of any number of subjects. He loved the work. Especially, working the “room.” He was a prolific orator. He wanted tons of open space and repurposing old buildings. He loved animals, all kinds. He was the one who helped getting the straw out of the turtle’s nose. He reared me in nature, a time before computers and Google, knowing how to make things from nature’s bounty.

With that, I will be taking a couple days to spend some time with my family. Find time to be with the ones you love, share your gifts with people can’t do anything for you in return, and challenge ideas to bring forth new and bold ideas. Be kind to one another. ~ Ms. Kitty

Our first “Fools Gone Wild” fundraiser was in 2014. It was glorious. Dr. Myke took center stage to test Malcolm’s laser light show.

We’ve narrowed it down and ready to make the move.

We are in the process of the endless paperwork for a larger facility. Nothing outrageous, It has all the things we love: good bones charm, homey feel, and lots of workroom. It has pros and cons. With having a larger facility, we can achieve in doing more. The best part will be job opportunities. It’s hard to ask for help during these uncertain times. But, I am asking. With more people laid off, more furry kids put on the streets, more families one check away from foreclosure or eviction, more farmland to build gigantic warehouses our needs are growing. We reach people, we come to the aide of our sister charities, we are here in your darkest hours. Our projects, our outreach, and greener pastures/historic buildings need your dollars. We are platinum transparent and a registered 501 (c) (3). Protect today, build tomorrow, now with us.

Global Human Project

Tell Patch About Your Favorite Local Charities In Medfield

What started as something small, has grown to changing the world. When we “the ants” don’t need them “the grasshoppers” what do you get…FREEDOM. Help your neighbors, the girl on-line getting bullied, the clerk getting yelled at by “Karen.” Stop human trafficking, teach something you love. Show someone it’s okay to be smart. Make a lifelong commitment to adopt a furry kid. You can do this! Helping people who need a hand up, not out…is part of our Global Human Project. Donations large and small unite to bring joy into some very dark circumstances. We all have that one bad chapter that no one should read, it doesn’t mean we aren’t a rare find. People are more that the jobs they have, the clothes they wear, and the “stuff” they own.

Animal Center for Health and Welfare

We have many mouths to feed. They need blankets, food (both dry and wet), toys, staff snacks, ETC. We dedicate resources for projects and supplies. We need time, talent and treasure to move to these cuddle bugs to fur-ever homes.

Plan of Safe Return to Community

Greenville’s restaurant industry feeding those hurt by COVID, with help from CARES funds

Busy…we should have been bees…

Essential has a different meaning here. We are all essential. All businesses are essential. The chain of receiving goods and services are essential. If the green bean guy doesn’t show up, no one is getting green beans. Food is up 30 percent. Right now, very little is going a long way. I am grateful to those who continually support this organization. Many of us have family that have served this country and we know how to cook for the masses. We have been creative on the “protocols” in compliance with all CDC guidelines.

Director Leah has made sure we had PPE and are current on the best courses of action to every worst case scenario imaginable. Director Dan Sr. has taken more walk through’s to projects than anyone could be asked. Director Heather is courting possible funding recourses. C.F.O. Dr. Myke is being driven mad with endless requests and not enough resources to meet the needs of everyone. Helping the homeless, finding homes for furry kids, narrowed down a larger facility, making all the impossibles…possible.

How are you spending your time?
