We enjoyed our annual Christmas party this week at No Limits. Check out scenes from our party day below!
Starting our holiday off with in-chair exercise with Betsy! As always, thank you so much to the United Way of Virginia’s Eastern Shore for helping to fund this exercise group.

Hey Matt! “Good mornin’! How you doin’?!”
Rachel’s husband, John, came to help us winterize the No Limits Hot Dog Cart before it gets too cold out. Thanks John!

Calvin joined us to celebrate as well!
Rachel’s son Luke, his fiancée, Beritt, and Beritt’s son Jay, came to say hello to everyone as well! What a wonderful Christmas party we had this year.
We would like to say an extra special thank you this week to 2 local organizations who recently donated to No Limits Eastern Shore, The Eastern Shore Convocation of Episcopal Church Women and the Eastern Shore Chapter of Dining for Women. With their donations, we were able to purchase several, much needed items for survivors of brain injury confined to long-term care facilities and other friends in need throughout our community. Members of No Limits thoroughly enjoyed choosing, wrapping, and delivering these gifts to their friends and peers. Check out pictures of the process of getting the gifts ready for delivery below!
Maryann and David working hard to wrap warm blankets.
Samantha having a good time wrapping up healthy treats.
A shot of some of the “No Limits Elves” hard at work!
Karaoke break! Steve and Maryann took a break from wrapping gifts to sing, dance, and be merry!
Brandon took a break from wrapping gifts to use some clear wrapping paper as a telescope. “Do you see what I see?”
Having fun while we give back. Great work!
We filled up this whole table full of presents and this was only half of what we were able to gift.
Here is the other half!

Thank you again SO VERY MUCH to The Eastern Shore Convocation of Episcopal Church Women and the Eastern Shore Chapter of Dining for Women for your donations to No Limits. Your assistance truly helped No Limits members to wish their peers and friends a very, Merry Christmas!
C L getting into the spirit of Christmas writing thank you cards next to his collection of reindeer! These cards will be delivered to members of the Onancock Chapter of Dining for Women who made a recent donation to No Limits.

Steve says “Every Santa display needs lights!” Thanks Maryann and C L for helping to hang holiday decorations!
An extra special thank you to long time No Limits employee Maryann for donating the awesome Santa and reindeer decorations. The finished product looks great!
