We're Wrapping All That Hurt And Sadness In Love

My brother in law gets a jump on the day. 
A Fundraiser.

There is food to cook, tents to place and list a mile long. 
We're hoping for sunshine. 
The doors to this farm will be flung open once again. 
This time we'll breathe deep. 
We'll gather together to honor Elijah's memory. 

We will remember. 

Deuteronomy 6:13-19
 Fear the Lord your God, serve him only and take your oaths in his name.  Do not follow other gods, the gods of the peoples around you;  for the Lord your God, who is among you, is a jealous God and his anger will burn against you, and he will destroy you from the face of the land.  Do not put the Lord your God to the test as you did at Massah.  Be sure to keep the commands of the Lord your God and the stipulations and decrees he has given you.  Do what is right and good in the Lord’s sight, so that it may go well with you and you may go in and take over the good land the Lord promised on oath to your ancestors,  thrusting out all your enemies before you, as the Lord said.

We're going to make a difference in this world. 
With one small event we can affect change. 
We'll come together with a common purpose. 

Elijah, you are so missed. 

Today we're taking all that sadness and we're wrapping it in love. 
Reaching big. 
If you are interested in giving to the Elijah Davis Memorial Fund. 
See the information below. 

The night of the Event we will be taking donations for the Memorial Fund. Many have asked the intent of the Fund.We established the Fund to be able to bless students and families. To date we have given a donation to the band department at Mount Mansfield Union High School and also the Lacrosse Team; both areas of great love for Elijah. We were also able to award a $1,000 scholarship to a graduating Senior. Our desire is to continue to give the scholarship as the funds are available and the needs arise. We would also like to be able to give a Scholarship to the Norwich Leadership weekend and possible 2 week camp. Elijah attended the Leadership weekend. It was a wonderful experience for him. Here is the information to make a tax deductible donation.
