I think the best fundraiser we ever had was the singing telegrams at Valentines Day. Now it has become an annual event. The kids take orders for singing telegrams and balloon bouquets. Two of our ladies dress up really country. Straw hats, blacked out teeth. Red lipstick braided Wigs,Overalls a guitar and a song. They would make up a couple of cute songs the night before. Southern draw and all!  They would knock on doors and just walk in office buildings with a bouquet of helium balloons tied to a Teddy bear or some candy. The 2 of them would break out sangin' into one of those songs. However appropriate for the holiday they were hilarious. They both could really sing, but they would sing it so off key, harmonizing all the while. One couldn't help but double over laughing. A little southern draw in the sangin' too! What talent. Suprised and embarrassed faces would appear red and most of the time laughing to tears. Nothing felt so good as seeing the wonderful laughs, straight from the heart on Valentines Day. How Sweet it is. We only charged $10.00 each for these wonderful singing telegrams and delivered balloons. God knows every smile was worth the extra time, money, and gas, it took to bring this to fruition. Proverbs says, A merry heart doeth good like a medicine. Well since 1997 on Valentines Day, our hearts are filled with merriment.  In fact we usually make every effort to deliver a little merriment to those who couldn't pay! What a blessing we get to be.

Mary Douglas and Myself have for the 2nd time in three years begun doing a summer camp for our youth 14 and up. A ministering weekend with food, fun games and just a great time for the youth. We loved this, but this year was not able to purchase t-shirts for the kids to remember there weekend. To even be able to do this we had to charge the kids $25. for the weekend. However tight the weekend was we got a great band to lower their price and help us out. We did the entire weekend on about $500. We had 15 kids and 6 adults in one cabin. Wall to wall youth! What a weekend!!! we would love to do this again next summer or maybe something this fall. If we win this grant that is what we want the money to be allocated for. Thanks for doing this spirited grant contest. SO great to have the support of others poured into a christian organization. Blessings Indeed, Linda Graham

"Bestest Yard Cart Ever in the Whole Wide World"
Over the past few months, Ive been sharing my personal reviews of the Lifetime Yard Cart. Ive come to the conclusion its an awesome product with lots of cool and unique features. So far, the only drawback Ive discovered is that it is difficult to dump multiple small loads because when the load shifts it is hard to tip the cart back down, both in wheelbarrow and trailer modes. Ironically though, this negative turned into a huge positive for us when we were spreading our compost. At first, I thought Lifetime had thought of everything with this product... cup holders, tool holders, trailer mode conversion, slats for building up the sides, and more. However, after using the Yard Cart for a while, I now have a few more ideas that I think would truly make the Lifetime Yard Cart the bestest Yard Cart ever in the whole wide world. ...
How I Used the Lifetime Space Planner to Plan Bear's Backyard

I had the opportunity to go toa gamethe other nightagainst the Atlanta Hawks. It was one of the first timescoming back sinceIcollaborated with theLifetime Store to plan the area in October. It turns out, seeing kids having fun onthe Lifetimeplaygrounds and Double Shotswere one of the few happy sights that night...our beloved Jazz were 3-pointed to deathby those pesky Hawks, resulting in a score of110-87.As you can see in this photo, the faces of the people behind us are a little nervous. Fans leftstill hopeful though. I think we know that the Jazzwill get back on their winning streak soon! When putting together the plan for Bear's Backyard, we were faced wi...
Lifetime Makes Waves at One of the Largest Outdoor Shows in the World
Many people dont know this, but Salt Lake City, UT is currently home to one of the largest Outdoor Industry shows in the world - Outdoor Retailer!And for those of you not familiar with Lifetimes home base, we are only 30 minutes north of Salt Lake. So lucky for us, this show is smack in our backyard. While we did attend this show last year, we went bigger and better than ever this year! The show began for the Water Sports industry on Wednesday, August 1 at the Open Air Demo held at Jordanelle Reservoir. Jordanelle Reservoir is a beautiful venue for a demo day, especially since it is in such close proximity to the show and to infamous Park City, Utah.We took all of our current Lifetime Kayak models out so retailers and potential dealersfrom all over the world could give our boats a spin.We had the Lifetime Wave, Tamarack, Tam...
