8 Thursday, January 9, 1997 Pahrump Valley Gazette Darlene Howard is happiest when she is helping others. On aptitude tests, Howard always scored high in social work, but she never considered it as a career. Business was her choice. Howard helps people because she wants to. On Christmas day, she wanted share the holiday with people who would otherwise be alone. The idea was born while helping at "No to Abuse." She heard several people say they had no one in the area to share the holiday. The thought of people alone on Christmas both- ered Howard. "Christmas Day is when you need some- body. Christmas is miserable if you don't have some- one." She decided to provide an opportunity for people alone to find fellowship with each other on the holiday. She started with a telephone call. Yes, the Pahrump Community Center was available on Christmas day. Next she contacted a local newspaper to run a brief inviting people who would be alone on the holiday to join her at the center. The day of fellowship would begin with coffee and donuts at 10 a.m. Guests could play board games, visit or just enjoy being in the company of others until dinner at 2 p.m. Christmas was in less than two weeks when Howard made her decision. She was undaunted as she planned Christmas decorations including a tree and gifts for everyone. She would make a festive dinner for her guests, but how many? She had asked interested people to call, but had made it clear all, who would be facing the holiday alone, were welcome. She decided more would be better. Emotional rather than economic need was the only criteria for Howard's guests. The presents were "no big deal," she said. "I just think everyone should have a Christmas present. Gifts are part of the holiday tradition of caring and sharing." Connued on nextpage a TEN REASONS WHY ALLSTATE IS BETTER THAN 00IEW! 1. Our cars look, feel & drive new, but cost thousands less 2.
