Page 10 THE VILLADOM TIMES II • December 24, 2008 Ridgewood Friends, Romans, countrymen Recently, Stefanie Gigante’s Latin 3 classes participated in mock trials. In four courtrooms, the students put Julius Caesar on trial. Students in each class shared the roles of lawyers, witnesses and prop masters in order to bring the trial to life. Every student dressed in a toga or costume appropriate for the roles in the trial and acted out his or her part. All the discipuli performed lively and engaging shows. As for the verdict, the jury’s still out. SHOTMEYER BROS. “We’re the Energy Experts!” Emmanuel asks He l p ? Can Yo u Our hat’s off to all of our supporters this past year. You have all made it pos- sible for us to do our work in the northern seven county area (Bergen, Essex, Sussex, Hudson, Passaic, Morris and Warren coun- ties). It has been a challenging year and there are many challenges still ahead of us. We appreciate your year-end ﬁ nancial support. (Please write a check before Dec. 31 to make your tax-deductible contribution to our families.) We do need your direct help in order to keep up with the current level of programs that we offer. Underwriting the costs of electricity, telephones, the rent and salaries may not be romantic, but they are real expenses that we must meet each month. Help us to help them. Your funds are meticulously well spent and most of the money goes directly help the families. Involve your group now and in the New Year. Enlist the aid of your coworkers, team, or other organization members in conduct- ing a fundraiser or food collection to help get us through the winter months. Keep in mind that whether the times are hard or are good, many people dealing with a child diagnosed with cancer have a tough go of it, especially those with a moderate income. We thank you for helping this little girl who has big problems in her daily living! Allie, age four, was diagnosed with Wilm’s Tumor seven months ago. She had one kidney removed and then months of chemotherapy treatment. The treatment, unfortunately, left her with one kidney an overactive bladder and leg muscle damage. She now suffers from bladder spasms, dis- comfort, frequent urges, accidents, and constant urination. She goes through mul- tiple packages of Pull-Ups every day, with night time being the worst. She wakes up two to three times a night needing a change of PJ’s and bedding. All of this is happening at the vulnerable age of four years old! Her mom, Sarah, is handling this as a single parent who had to quit work as a teacher’s aide. Allie has a string of doctor’s appoint- ments, medical tests, check-ups, and physi- cal therapy. Basically, you could say that she is under siege. The next hurdle is leg casting to correct leg damage and prevent walking difﬁ culties. The main cost this small family has is the high expense for many packages of Pull-Ups. Any help with donations is greatly appreciated. She wears a 4T or 5T Pull-Ups or Goodnights brand (38 pounds plus). Her family desperately needs ﬁ nan- cial help, so we ask you to step up and write a check to Emmanuel earmarked for our Family Financial Assistance Fund. Call us at (201) 612-8118 before you stop by. Please do not leave items at center with- out ﬁ rst checking with us, as our storage space is limited. Hours are 10 to 5 Monday through Friday. Our address is 174 Pater- son Avenue, Midland Park, NJ 07432. Our website is www.emmanuelcancer.org. As always, thank you for helping the children and their families! ��������������� � �������� ����������������� ����������������������������������������� ���������������������������������� ���������������������������������� ��������������� ����������������������������������� ���������������������������������������� �������������������������������� ����������������� The Finest Heating Oil and Service Company in the Industry!
