Just wanted to let the guys know on GT Talk that fellow GT Talk member Westurd found out that the neighbor boys were not going to be able to have a Christmas tree or decorations or presents because they could not afford it. So he took it upon himself to find a Christmas tree and decorations for free. He went to the local Rotary Club in town to get a tree. He went to the local thrift store in town and explained the situation to the manager. The manager gave him decorations for the tree. He used money to buy Christmas stocking stuffers for the boys.
This is the true spirit of Christmas. Unfortunately I do not have a picture of Westurd delivering the tree, decorations, and gifts to the neighbors on his John Deere 110 and John Deere 80 cart. I can't say how proud of Westin I am.I thought you guys would enjoy this story.We have had some much sadness the last couple of days. :thumbs:

Please tell Wes we are proud of him too. I'm sure the family was touched by his gesture and his generosity is something lacking from most younguns these days.

Good for you Wes, :thumbs:

Very heart warming story to hear, way to go Westin :thumbs:.

But I think so far that our replies to Josh's post have overlooked one small detail. Kids get this stuff from their Parents and the rest of their family. So I think we all should be including a big pat on the back and thank you to Josh and Mrs. Josh for doing an excellent job in raising a great young man.

So let me be the first:
Very heart
warming story to hear, way to go Westin, and Family :thumbs:.
