40 Days for Life - Walnut Creek
What: 40Days for Life
Where: Walnut Creek
When: NOW

From March 6 to April 14, 40 Days for Life is underway in Walnut Creek … part of a groundbreaking, coordinated international mobilization. We pray that, with God’s help, this will mark the beginning of the end of abortion in our area — and beyond.

LAST CALL: Crab Feed is March 16th
All Hand's Event!
A few tickets left (but not for long)!
The big party and fundraiser is almost here (and it is shaping up to be a great one)!

Many hands make light work and we have over 400 men in the council. There are still open jobs. Make some time to help out so everyone can have an enjoyable evening where we raise the funds to support our programs!

You can still tickets if you have not already (Dennis told me last night that we are at the 400 mark, so don't delay).

Also - if you have a lemon tree, the Crab Feed team is requesting lemon donations - contact Claire Duguid if you can help.
Make plans to attend a special Pre-Release Screening of the movie "Unplanned" at 7 pm on March 27th! We are finalizing plans to buyout a large theater at Regal Hacienda Dublin so we can show this movie before it is released on March 29th as a fundraiser for the KofC UltraSound initiative. This will be a unique event and the Livermore Knights, behind ProLife leader Nick Libby, will coordinate this event an include ProLife supporters from around the TriValley. Watch for details, which are being finalized now - possibly later today.
RCCBB Update
Barry and his team are cruisin' ahead with plans for an awesome RCCBB event. He has lots of teams and cars already signed up and more to come. If you have not signed up to help yet, check out the SignUp Genius or contact Barry directly.

The 'Word' from our Sponsor

“When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, so that it will not be obvious to others that you are fasting, but only to your Father, who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you."
Matthew 6: 16-18
Did you hear the one ...

Q: Where is the first baseball game in the Bible?
A: In the big inning. Eve stole first, Adam stole second. Cain struck out Abel. The Giants and the Angels were rained out.
