Drumheller's generosity will be showcased in a special presentation Tuesday afternoon.
 
Cindy and Bob Thomas and Gary and Christine Storrs recently traveled to Roatan as part of a humanitarian trip.
 
"We had a lot of people in the community that helped us out, sponsoring shipments to get all the stuff down there, also sponsors for the things that we took down there and this is our way of saying thank you," said Cindy Thomas.
 
They will be showing a slide show of their trip to the Honduran island Tuesday (January 31) afternoon at the Pioneer Trail Centre. She adds they will be talking about where they went and audience members will have an opportunity to ask questions about the trip after.
 
"We traveled to a lot of communities, we saw a lot of kids and we just want to give everybody a visual of what we actually do when we go down there. I think it's just really important for people to know what we're doing," added Thomas.
 
She says many people have already asked them if they're planning to go back for Christmas 2017 and have received donations for their next trip. The Pioneer Trail Centre ladies also jumped on board by donating 600 knitted dolls and balls.
 
"That was such an amazing gift because so many little babies, we couldn't give them the little plastic toys we brought, but as soon as you gave them those little knitted dolls they just hugged them. They just hugged them. They're soft and we have so many baby pictures," chuckled Thomas.       
 
She estimates the presentation will run 30 to 40 minutes. It gets underway at 2:45 p.m. with the slide show presentation starting at 3:00. 
 
"For those who won't be able to make it we just want to say, again, another huge thank you to everybody to helped make this trip so memorable for so many kids down there," concluded Thomas.
