This week Eureka Puzzles, a store on Beacon Street in Brookline MA, made a donation of puzzles to PuzzlesToRemember. Eureka Puzzles describes itself as:

Eureka! A store overflowing with treasures ranging from artful jigsaws to diabolical mindbenders, clever games and books, to the ancient art of Japanese puzzle boxes, all chosen to entertain your mind.

Thanks, Eureka Puzzles. Your puzzles will bring a lot of comfort to many Alzheimer’s patients.

I Feel Proud Today

Puzzles to Remember

Today, to my surprise, I received a package in the mail. It was from the Veterans Home in Silver Bay, Minnesota. First, I’ll quote the note, signed by two veterans:

“Thank you very much for the puzzles you sent to our Veterans Home in Silver Bay, Minnesota. We’re all so proud of your goals and accomplishments at such a young age. Our Veterans enjoy puzzles everyday in the name of your Great Grandmother. Keep up the good work”!

Included in this package was a great cap from the Minnesota Veterans Home, and two smaller packages.

The smaller packages each held a card with a poem that said:

“You’re a very special person
Who helps in many ways
With your heartfelt efforts
That earn our highest praise.

We appreciate the care
That goes into all you do.
The world’s a better place.
Thanks to people like you.”

Included were several small pins. One of them, my favorite, says “I MAKE A DIFFERENCE”.
I hope so! That’s my goal!

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to spend some time at the Grace Lutheran Church in Needham. The Sunday School children there had already collected over 20 puzzles for PuzzlesToRemember. The members of the church agreed to keep collecting puzzles to donate for Alzheimer’s patients.
