Thank You for Being a Friend in 2017



Let’s take a moment this New Year’s Eve to reflect and say Thank You to all who contributed to the successes at LUM in 2017.


Thank You…

Thank You…


Thank you for being a friend in 2017. LUM has impacted a significant number of children and families in our community this year because of YOU. What YOU do for LUM is so important for enabling us to accomplish our mission — and gives hope to families, encourages and educates children, and is a positive force in our community.

Thank you for choosing us as your partner this year.


Thank you for being a friend
Traveled down a road and back again
Your heart is true, you’re a pal & a confidant
I’m not ashamed to say
I hope it always will stay this way
My hat is off, won’t you stand up & take a bow
And if you threw a party
Invited everyone you knew
Well, you would see the biggest gift would be from me
And the card attached would say
Thank you for being a friend



Happy New Year — We’ll Take a Cup of Kindness


Should old acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind
Should old acquaintance be forgot
And days of auld lang syne
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We’ll take a cup o’kindness yet

And days of auld lang syne Should old acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind
Should old acquaintance be forgot
And days of auld lang syne
