Moore magic: Help needed as Jimmy Moore party planning begins; read Jimmy's letter


MEADVILLE — Sign-ups

Children ages 10 and younger must be pre-registered with the Meadville Sertoma Club to attend the annual Jimmy Moore Christmas party.

Sign-up dates for the party are Dec. 4, 5 and 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Meadville Sertoma Club, 14420 Baldwin St. Ext., or by calling the club at 333-1234.

This year’s party is Dec. 22 at Meadville Area Senior High School.

Buy a paper to help Jimmy Moore

Meadville Sertoma Club’s annual Jimmy Moore Christmas Party newspaper sales drive is today and Saturday in hopes of gathering funds for the annual holiday gathering for underprivileged children in the Meadville area.

Meadville Sertoma Club members are selling donated issues of The Meadville Tribune at various locations in Meadville and Saegertown. The money raised during the newspaper drive helps put together the Christmas party for children age 10 and younger.

Toy auction Sunday

To help raise funds for the annual Jimmy Moore Christmas Party, a toy auction is hosted Sunday at Meadville Sertoma Club, 14420 Baldwin St. Ext. Hundreds of toys of all kinds will be sold to bidders in a live auction. The auction begins at 1 p.m.

The club has an overabundance of some toys from previous years. Since we can no longer use some of them, and since income is low this year, this will supplement our funds.

Jimmy’s letter

Dear Santa Claus,

I’m Jimmy Moore. I guess you don’t know we’re awful poor, and is that the reason, Santa, why you always pass us by? The folks with money, Santa Claus, get the nicest things for Christmas. Maybe you can tell me why. I’ve never had a Christmas tree. I guess nobody thinks of me — if they do they all forget when the toys are passed about. And I guess you forget me too — the same as other people do — or maybe you don’t like me — for you always leave me out.

But I thought you were different than the other people I know. I thought sure you’d remember. I wonder what it is that I’ve done that I can’t have no Christmas fun — do you think that I’m more naughty than the richer boys? But Santa, I thought you might remember me if I would write a little note and ask you not to miss us cause we’re poor, so please now Santa, won’t you try to look me up — don’t pass me by — I’ll be looking for you, Santa.

From your old friend,

Jimmy Moore
