“I get by with a little help from my friends!”

Father Blaney's Friends Club 
Father Blaney’s Friends Club

A song written and performed by the Beatles was titled “With a Little Help From My Friends.” The lyrics say, “Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends. I’m gonna try with a little help from my friends.” These words describe Father Blaney’s Friends Club because your membership – your friendship – has provided that little help our villagers need. With a little help from their friends, they have learned new skills and provided a little help to their friends.

Your membership in Friends Club is a great gift. Our villagers are amazing individuals with many talents to share and they don’t need tasks done for them, they only need a little help from you, their friends, to succeed. Your friendship has provided that help and they thank God for your presence in their lives.

Continue to give the gift of friendship at Sharing Meadows by renewing your Friends Club membership today. Your membership will support Sharing Meadows and assure the villagers that they will continue to get by with a little help from their friends.

FRIENDS CLUB is a special club where friends come together to enjoy the comfort and assurance of friendship while providing a little help to other abled adults. FRIENDS CLUB not only helps other abled adults grow in love and friendship, it also assists all people involved in our organization to form new friendships that last a lifetime while maintaining the old.

The development of Sharing Meadows continues because of the tremendous support from our FRIENDS and we hope you become part of this special club. We are enclosing two membership cards, one for your renewal and one to share with a friend. Membership in the FRIENDS CLUB remains just $40, the same as last year. Each month you will receive our newsletter, the GOOD NEWS, and will automatically be entered in a drawing to win one of three $100 gift certificates to your favorite restaurant. You might also be selected as the HIDDEN WINNER for the month – your name hidden somewhere in the newsletter. If you see your name as the hidden winner, call us before the end of the month and we’ll send you $40. Renew your membership today! Recruit a new friend for us today! Thank you, FRIENDS!
