Hi everyone,

Just a reminder that you are invited to a meeting of the Baby Kit Committee, taking place from 12:45 to 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 26, in the fellowship hall. No previous experience is necessary. Participants will create the kits from the donations of clothing, diapers and other necessary items for babies in families in the farthest corners of the world. Lutheran World Relief is the organizer. See you there.
