On Saturday, Lodi Adopt-A-Child gave clothing and toys to nearly 900 children, and another 25 or so received toys on Sunday. This would not have been possible without the support and generosity of hundreds of people.

Many of those children were “adopted” by members of the community, and through the financial support given, we were able to purchase gifts for the others.

Many of our benefactors have supported us for a long period of time. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

All of the work of buying, cataloging, wrapping, inventorying and distributing the gifts was done by volunteers. Our board of directors receive no compensation for their efforts throughout the year, and especially during the Christmas rush. If you see any of these folks on the street, please take a moment and thank them for what they do for the underprivileged children of Lodi: Claude Brown, Dennis Jones, Mary Luna, Angel and Martha Ordaz, Sandy Preszler, Greg Thompson, Andrea Violett and Angie Valdovinos. Another lady, Dyanne Jones, provides tremendous clerical help for us. She opens the office every morning before 8:30 a.m. and remains until at least 4 p.m. everyday since Thanksgiving.

We all wish the community of Lodi a Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with happiness, good health, prosperity and peace. No person stands so tall as when they stoop to help a child. God bless.

Jerry Glenn

President

Lodi Adopt-A-Child

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
