Hello Sisters and Brothers,
Findlay Chapter is off to a great start to the new term. Prior to our November meeting we had Laurie Poland, of the Hope House, speak with our members about the work they do at their shelter for homeless women and children. The Hope House has many programs to help the women learn life skills such as cooking, sewing, parenting skills, and money management, with the end goal of transitioning them into homes and apartments of their own. Hope House will be our main local charity this term. Our first project for Hope House will be collecting items to create Birthday Baskets containing items that can be used to celebrate the children’s birthdays. These will include cake mix, frosting, cake pan, plates/napkins, perhaps candles and decorations. We will assemble these baskets next spring, after our winter break.
At our December meeting, we are sending Christmas cards to our shut-in members and celebrating Christmas with a Make It, Bake It, or Fake It Gift exchange.
We are dark (not meeting) for the months of January and February. We hope to see you in the spring, at our March 12th meeting.
Our theme this year is “America the Beautiful” and we hope you will stop, and take the time, to see the beauty that is around you, even in the smallest things.
