News » The Girls
A few years back,we decided to forgo our annual Christmas gift exchange, and, instead, we would participate in the Southeast Tennis and Learning Center's Recreation Wish List (RWL) Christmas celebration. SETLC, headed by the indefatigable Cora Masters Barry, is a wonderful recreation and learning center in Anacostia, serving hundreds of moderate- and low-income families. Each Christmas RLC selects deserving families from its roster of young people, and invites those families to submit a "Wish List" of Christmas gifts. The girls and I "adopt" a couple of families and every year and do our best to make their Christmases joyful. We love it, and we especially love the Christmas morning pictures we receive from the families. Talk about JOY!
Christmas 2012, we decided that, in addition to our Wish List duties, we would do something for each other ... in celebration of our decades-long friendship, we sat for a photo session with the incomparable Sharon Farmer. It was a fabulous day of ringing laughter and great music. And I gotta tell you, it is HARD WORK! Anyway, we love the pictures and hope you do too!
