This will be the first fundraiser brunch for our Camp Bishopswood campers.  
There will be  a variety of delectable stratas 
(including a gluten -free one), 
...succulent ham, fruit, orange juice, coffee, and tea.

Brighton will once again make her luscious chocolate pies and Nora will be making homemade donuts (using her great-grandmother Nora's recipe). All of the campers will help serving and cleaning up. 
 This is always a fun event....and mom won't have to cook lunch! Guests are welcome and no reservations are needed.

Brighton Chung

interviewed Claudia a few weeks ago for a 
Senior Partner Report
 From Charity:
"Having no grandparents or senior family members in this state, she chose to write her paper on Claudia! She did great!"

Now that St. Francis has stocked the shelves with dental items at TOL, it is time to move on to other essential items not covered by SNAP:  hair products.  Items needed include shampoo, conditioner, barrettes, combs, brushes....anything to do with hair.  The dental items were (and continue to be) very much are the diapers which we shall continue to collect. On behalf of the Outreach committee, thank you so very much for your generosity.

St. Francis has got a lot of talent-but NOT one of these critters!
