On Wednesday evening, Nov 14, 2012 around 6 pm, the neighbors in Hisega Meadows gathered at the Toy Shop on Lindsey Drive for chili and homemade rolls. After the meal, they pulled up their sleeves and got busy putting the final touches on some toys being assembled for the Rapid City Woodworkers Association's Toy Program. With eight in attendance, approximately 100 basketball games, 35 cup and ball games, 45 paddle games and 15 ring toss games were fitted with wooden balls (or rings) and strings. We really appreciate their efforts, especially since many of the neighbors are still fully employed, and this was a school night! These extra efforts by caring friends brought us to the 95% mark on completion of handmade wooden toys to be given to kids in the Black Hills and Sioux Falls areas. Packing of the toys for the various organization will take place on Dec 1st, with distribution to be completed by the following Saturday.
