There are many wonderful events in Sterling as detailed in recent newsletters.

But recent tragic events make us all want to cling to and appreciate this holiday all the more. Watch out for bad drivers!

DELGAUDIO THANKSGIVING MESSAGE.

Last week, St. Matthews Church in Sterling fed 100s at their Thanksgiving free dinner. The church is packed. Link volunteers supplied thousands with food.

There are 1000s of great testimonies about how wonderful Sterling Americans are. This is just one Thanksgiving report below from 2008.

I am grateful to you and everyone who shares in the memory of this wonderful but typical Sterling American generosity.

Happy Thanksgiving!

History in Sterling: Neighbors Save Mom + 4 kids

This is a story from Sterling's past as your Supervisor.

It is a story that needs to be told again and again.

It is a report that some newspapers and many anti-Sterling reporters and some Grinch like Delgaudio hating liberals do not want to be told or reported in any fashion for their own selfish reasons.

This charitable work was done by you dear subscribers. Sterling Americans stepped up to the plate and helped out on short notice. Everybody opened their hearts and helped without notice.

Everybody worked together in just 72 hours.

Thank you for making this season -- and every season -- a success for so many as you donate to churches, LINK and other charities.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED (first reported to you Dec. 27 2008)


Sterling citizens reacted quickly. As I reported earlier to you, a buglary - robbery of a family on Harrison Road occurred during the day last Monday.

By Tuesday night, December 23, the family was visited by a contingent of neighbors with food, gifts and money for gift and food purchases for the children for Christmas.
The goal announced earlier of helping the single mother of 4 children in meeting the lost mortgage payment was met on Friday, December 26 at 5 p.m. with the deposit of 2200 dollars in donations.

Donors came from all over Sterling to make deposits to the fund at Wachovia (NOW named Wells Fargo). Donations came from 25 individuals and ranged from a low of $10, to a high of $400 from Gregory Heating Company. The Eastern Loudoun Basketball League gave 200 dollars, one anonymous donor gave $300. There was a $25 donation. Most individual donors requested to be anonymous. I call them a small army of Secret Santas.

Ironically, the Harrison Road Christmas Project was opened at Wachovia Bank (now Wells Fargo) by Gil Harrison, a financial specialist at Wachovia (now Wells Fargo), Sterling branch. The name of the account was established prior to the visit to the bank.
