The Roamin Angels take the motto ‘the show must go on’ very seriously…even in a blustery, cold, rain storm.
The 30th Annual Roamin Angels Toy Drive happened on December 7th but it was anything other than ‘business as usual’. In the past, the club has had some pretty tricky weather for the toy drive – snow, wind, rain – but this time Mother Nature had plans of her own with almost a combination of all three.
The first set up at 8am set the pop-up tents flying with the wind gusts onto McKnight Way. Pam Dias spoke with the manager at Kmart and he graciously allowed the club to set up under the overhang.
In spite of all the sogginess, windiness and rain, nothing could dampen the die-hard Roamin Angels, Santa (played by Ken Basile) and people coming by to donate gifts for distribution by the Salvation Army to Nevada County families in need.
