You know what they say...

You hear it every year, the old adage, "'It is better to give than to receive." You may brush it off as an old saying, but this year RE/MAX Real Estate Team found how wonderful it was to take joy in someone else's joy. Our clients and friends joined us by putting gifts under our tree of giving for the Loaves and Fishes program (unaccompanied/ homeless youth). Baskets were made with these gifts and given to the 120 unaccompanied youth in the program. Besides food and gifts, each kid also received nearly $50 in gift cards to places like Subway, Safeway, or Walmart to keep them fed throughout the holidays. We can't thank our clients and friends enough for helping us take on this project and getting into the giving spirit!

Remember when we went on the ladies retreat and made all of those tamocas? Well, yesterday Haley wrapped them all, grabbed Monica as her sidekick, and headed off to Grande Ronde Retirement Residence and Evergreen Health and Rehabilitation Center to play Santa.

Haley was excited to see her tree from the Festival of Trees in the lobby of Grande Ronde Retirement Residence!

As a Christmas gift to our clients, we decided to donate to the The Shelter from the Storm Safe House this year. In case you missed it in The Observer, here is our Christmas card to all of our clients and friends:

From all of us at RE/MAX Real Estate Team, we truly hope you have a magical Christmas filled with great company, fun, and giving!

The Festival of Trees

Haley spent the weekend a couple of weeks ago at the Festival of Trees! The theme of Haley's tree was "Going Green!" Haley described her tree as, "A green tree decorated with vibrant green and silver decorations with an assortment of environmentally friendly gifts underneath!" $24,450 was raised for the Soroptomists from the live auction alone, not including tickets, the silent auction and raffle.

RE/MAX Real Estate Team also donated a wreath. The theme was "A Night Out in Union County" and it featured dinner and dessert gift cards, movie tickets, and EOU basketball tickets- everything needed for a fun night out!

Here is our wreath awaiting the event in our back room!

Thank you to all who attended this fun event! Happy Holidays!

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree...

Help us make a splash again this year by donating to the Loaves and Fishes Program (unaccompanied/homeless youth). Last year was wonderful and now the tree is ready to take it on again! We are looking for non-perishable food items, scarves, gloves, hats, toiletry kits (lotion, shampoo, perfume), throw blankets, and so on! Please bring your unwrapped, tax deductible donation to the RE/MAX Real Estate Team office to put under our tree. We are open Monday through Friday 8am to 5:30pm and located at 2106 Island Avenue.

The RE/MAX ladies headed to Wallowa Lake last weekend for their annual Ladies Retreat. We spent the weekend crafting, laughing, and watching movies! We also sewed 30 tamocas! Tamocas are fleece bags filled with wheat that you microwave and use to ease tense muscles! We plan on donating these to a local assisted living home!

It snowed both nights we were at the lake! Haley was our master fire builder to keep up warm! It was a wonderful, fun, relaxing weekend!

Tailgating and RE/MAX Balloon shenanigans...

On Saturday we grabbed our grill, burgers with all the fixin's and headed out to EOU for some good times at the tailgate zone. If you haven't tailgated at EOU yet, it's a blast. There is live music, lots of food, and right before game time the drum line leads the football team through the tailgate zone to the field!

EOU took on Carrol College and while it was a great game, Carrol went back to Montana with the win, but Carrol wasn't the only team to get a win on Saturday. At half time during the football game EOU hosted the first ever Mascot Challenge. The contenders were Monty, the Mountaineer, the LHS Tiger, and our very own, RE/MAX Real Estate Team Balloon. Seconds before half time, the RE/MAX Real Estate Team Ballon waited anxiously was calm and collected on the side line ready to take the field! The challenge was to complete an obstacle course that ran the length of the football field. After a slow start our balloon pulled to the front of the pack and won! It was very entertaining. Check out the video of the race and the another of the victory dance.

It was fun to have our amazing clients join us at the tailgate for lunch before the game- thank you to all that came!
