Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action. ~W.J. Cameron

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Century 21 M M Holiday Extravaganza 2009

Last Friday night the Century 21 M & M Real Estate gang got together to kick off the season with our annual Holiday Extravaganza. It was a chance for over the 700 attendees to blow off some steam, catch up with old friends and enjoy the excellent food and beverages.

Century 21 M & M Real Estate sold raffle tickets to support Coats for Kids and raised over $500 to donate. Nancy Payne was the winner of the raffle drawing taking home $500. And, we also collected about 25 coats.

Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds. ~Theodore Roosevelt

From Los Banos - 167 coats + sweaters and scarves

Based on the information coming in from all of the offices, the Coat count is pushing upwards to 2000, and growing by the minute. Century 21 M & M Real Estate, associates and staff are so grateful to friends, family and our communities for the support in our Coats for Kids campaign.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude make sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow. ~Melody Beattie

Century 21 M & M Real Estate, John Melo and Larry Matos, including Associates and Staff, wish you all a blessed Thanksgiving Day. Please feel free to share your holiday stories and comments… email us at newsandviews@c21mm.com, or just leave us a comment below.
