The Peninsula Noblemen did a very "Noble Deed" for the Peninsula "Little League Challenger" in October. Little League Challenger is a baseball program just for special needs children. The Peninsula division has been sharing a storage shed with other little league programs and were regularly coming up with missing equipment as a result. The Peninsula Noblemen learned about their need for a shed and donated $2500 to have a brand new shed built just for the Challenger program. The folks at Little League Challenger could not have been any more excited to receive this gift.

The Noblemen knock another one out of the park!
 

 
The Noblemen were delighted to join the students from the Tallwood High School special needs program on their annual field trip to Back Bay Farms (a great Noblemen Community Partner). We had a great time checking out the farm and hanging out with the kids before treating everybody to lunch at Pungo Pizza.

BIG congratulations goes out to the NobleTeens at Princess Anne High School for hosting the first annual "West Fest". West Fest was a daylong party/celebration just for children who attend Princess Anne's "West Wing" facility for special needs children. The NobleTeens hosted a bunch of activities for the West Wing kids including games, face painting, movies, a pizza party and more. The West Fest celebration coincided with the Princess Anne homecoming and for the first time ever the West Wing kids marched in the homecoming parade and presented their own Homecoming King and Queen. This was a magical day for all of the kids in the West Wing and The Noblemen organization could not be any more proud of the Princess Anne Nobleteens for hosting this event!!!

Special thanks to Jason Barefoot for working with the NobleTeens and also to Bill DeSteph for lending the NobleTeens his Bentley to use in the homecoming parade. You guys rock!

 

 
Earlier this year the Noblemen were able to help a local special needs boy acquire a new computer so he could use specialized software provided by the public school system. The Noblemen learned that this young man's family had fallen on some very hard times and were facing some very difficult circumstances. The Noblemen were able to provide some much needed relief to the family in October and hope that things start looking up for this great local family!
 
 

 
The Noblemen met a wonderful lady named Mimi in Portsmouth about six years ago. Mimi had just taken legal custody of four grandchildren and one week later had her home condemned by the city of Portsmouth. The Noblemen came in and did a big remodeling job on her home to add additional room for her grandchildren and save the home. She also received a donated van to help her transport her grandchildren around. Last month a storm knocked a tree  onto Mimi's van and destroyed it and also knocked a fence over in her backyard. Noblemen to the rescue! Mike Plunkett, a Noblemen member and his family donated a Suburban to The Noblemen so that we could give it to Mimi to replace her van and Mike Reff (pictured to the right, with Mimi) assembled a team of workers and rebuilt her fence. Mimi could was extremely excited and grateful for these awesome Noble Deeds!
 
   

Congratulations to the Salem High School NobleTeens. They hosted an awesome Halloween celebration for Glenwood Elementary School complete with a haunted house, face painting, Halloween games and more. Great job NobleTeens!
