2018 Event Photos
Toys For Tots

In a D-Patrick's showroom devoted to toys for big boys and girls, the first Saturday in December was time to give to young children in our community who may not receive many or any presents this Christmas if it weren't for this program.

Once again, SIR-PCA members filled the trunks and interiors of several Porsches to give to the United States Marine Corps Reserves' Toys For Tots campaign.

Mark Roethemeier and Scott Klueh welcomed the crowd and thanked everyone for participating.

This was our third year of contributing to the Toys For Tots effort.

Tony Ricketts thanked us all on behalf of D-Patrick and invited us to lunch.

The Acropolis Restaurant catered and we happily sampled everything.

Did you try the bacon-wrapped dates? Mmmmm! And the Baklava!

This being the final event of 2018, we visited for a while. 2018 had been a great year. We treasured old friends and new and looked forward to 2019.

The Marine Reservists arrived to accept our toys and they brought framed certificates of appreciation.

The Commander's Award for outstanding achievement.

Scott accepted them and will give one to the folks at D-Patrick.

A smaller crowd than last year assembled for a group photo, but that may have been due to Saturday's cold rain. Also, people were able to drop off toys earlier in case they couldn't attend on this Saturday.

Next, we collected the toys from the showroom and...

...transferred them to the Toys For Tots vehicles.

Is there any room left? We had to start filling a second vehicle.

It was fun to think about the children's delight on the coming Christmas morning. Toys For Tots is a good cause (and a cheerful one). After all, aren't we still kids at heart?
