This is such a special season for any number of reasons!  We hope that it brings you all a sense of peace, time with your families and an opportunity to realize just how blessed we all are.

Lynn is putting the final touches on the bus trip to Washington DC.  This is such a huge undertaking and she handles it with such efficiency.  I am in awe of her.  We will have 9 buses this year and except for about 4 seats, they are full!  This will be a life changing experience for many of our travelers.

We still have some Christmas cards left and some Entertainment books.  If you or anyone at your faith community wants some, please have them call the office.

I would like to stress the raffle.  This effort will provide MUCH needed funds to the main office.  Perhaps word of explanation about the structure of LIFESPAN is necessary here.  The main office (LIFESPAN, Inc.) of Right to Life-LIFESPAN functions as the “director” for the Wayne West and Oakland Macomb chapters.  The decisions on what LIFESPAN will do, what events we will sponsor etc., are made at board meetings of LIFESPAN Inc.  This body has no membership of its own. The chapters support LIFESPAN, Inc. with dues from each chapter’s membership.  While LIFESPAN, Inc. has no income it does have expenses!  Things like the raffle and our president’s yearly fundraising letter and the Resource Book ads go to help meet those expenses.  So—the raffle is really important—first for the winner (who doesn’t want an extra $10,000?) and then for the expenses of the main office.  Please “spread the word” about the raffle.  We have tickets here in the Oakland/Macomb office.

Attached is a flyer with a white candle on it.  Remember that we have white candle kits here in the office You can order however many you want so that can be lit on the evening of January 21st to burn through the night in memory of all the babies whose lives have been lost to abortion.  I encourage you to let your faith community know about them and also ask if you can use a few to line the sidewalk at the entrance to your church on the 24th as a remembrance.

You can still request a Light for Life on our Christmas tree. I have attached a flyer—perhaps you can get permission to post it in your gathering area.

We hope you enjoy your Christmas and will find the New Year filled with happiness, blessings and LIFE.

Diane and Lynn
