Hi Folks,

Well, how do you like the weather in 2018 so far?  Way too cold for my tastes but I look forward to warmer temperatures—like 45!

With the new year comes lots of things to do.  You will find all kinds of attachments to this email.  Not everything comes at once, but at least it will give you an idea of what lies ahead.  I am also attaching a Save the Date Flyer.  It lists some of our upcoming events. Please feel free to copy and share it with anyone you think might be interested.

It is not too early to start thinking of approaching your faith community regarding an ad in the Resource Book.  If they have taken an ad in previous years they have already received one mailing from the main office, asking them to take one again this year, but it usually takes a couple of reminders before they act.  I have also attached an ad contract.  Don’t forget to approach your friend, relatives and those with whom you do business.  If they would like to see a copy of the book, just let me know, and I can arrange that.

This is a “raffle year”.  I have attached a raffle flyer so you can share it with whomever you like or reprint it for wider distribution.  There are no guarantees but we only sell 500 $50.00 tickets and the prize is $10,000.  Those odds are certainly better than the Lottery!

If you want to remember the anniversary of Roe v Wade in a special way at your home or your church, keep in mind that we have the white candles that can be lit the evening of the 21st of January.  There is no charge, but if you would like to make a donation, we will be happy to accept it.  We have the candles kits already made up with instructions.  Just call the office, 248-816-1546 and let us know how many.

Since this is being written before the buses leave for the Movement in Motion bus trip to Washington DC, please hold warm and safe thoughts for the young people who will be participating.  We have 7 buses going and know it will be a life changing experience for those attending.

If you need anything, don’t hesitate to call.

Love Life!

Diane and Lynn
