Easter Bunny Brunch
Thank you to everyone that worked so hard to make the Easter Bunny Brunch such a great success. Kim Monahan did a great job in organizing the event and decorating the Hall. Thank you for everyone that donated food and supplies to make the brunch affordable for all.
I would like to send a special thank you to all of the dads that joined me in the kitchen early Saturday morning to prepare a fantastic feast for the 125 plus people that attended this fun community building event.

FOURTH WEEK OF LENT
Maria de la Luz Lugo Martínez remembers what it was like growing up in Ejido Hidalgo, Mexico. "We said we were rich because we had a lot of corn, beans and animals." But now, with few jobs and even less rain, young people-including Maria's children-are leaving the community in search of a better life.
To help families like Maria's, CRS launched a greenhouse project empowering women with meaningful work and community. Women visit their community greenhouses to grow cactuses to sell-but they also go for so much more. "At the greenhouses, we laugh, we talk, we spend time together. Sometimes we leave our homes angry or sad. But then we start working with the plants, and we forget. Talking, laughing-we forget our problems for a while," says Maria.
As the cactuses grow, so to do the economic opportunities. "We didn't believe we were going to get that far. It's a lot of joy, a lot of excitement to see so many plants flowering."
The flourishing cactuses aren't the only things that give Maria pride. Even though they live far away, she still remains close to her family. "I give thanks to God that he gave me all my children and grandchildren," she says. "They give me strength and courage to work hard. My children call and say, 'Don't give up, Mom. Have faith in God.'"
