Message from Our President

Hi Ladies,

We are excited to announce that this month we will meet in person at Benedict's and lunch for members will be on us! To facilitate this and our speaker, the meeting will start at 11:30 am and go to 1:00 pm. Our speaker will be Dr. Dale Presser, a cardiologist in our area, and he will talk to us about heart disease.

During the meeting, we will also vote for our 2021 Community Partners and Board Members. We will hear from each of the five area non-profits that have applied for our support.

I am looking forward to seeing everyone in person on October 15th.


Thank You,
Julie Taylor
President

Check out some of what we have going on!
  1. Open Table provides relationship support for transition youths and at-risk parents. 5-8 individuals form a village (Open Table) around a young person to help them navigate life. They meet for one hour a week for one year. This program has been very successful. We are always in need of individuals to sit on these Open Tables that we form.
  2. We are at the very beginning of a new program to provide cars for transitioning youths. A lack of transportation is one of the key areas that causes these youths to fall through the cracks. They cannot get to education and job opportunities. We have recently donated our first car and want to create a continuing program. We need committee members to help with the design and operating of the program.
  3. With COVID ramifications challenging this special event, we are in need of assistance to plan and carry out our annual Christmas party at the James Samaritan Center. 
  4. Help us spread the word about our virtual online shopping for kids clothing. Follow the link to shop:  https://well-dressed-wolf-wildling-omi-jo-sale-for-charity.cheddarup.com
