LIFESPAN OAKLAND/MACOMB REPRESENTATIVE MEMO: MARCH 2017

Hi Folks!

    Do you believe that in just about 3 weeks we go back on daylight savings time??  Right now that just means a little more daylight to showcase our very grey skies and rather gloomy weather.  Hurry Summer!

     Our travelers returned home from Washington DC safe and sound and really impressed with the March this year.  We got lots of media coverage and the young people were particularly impressed by Vice President Pence and Rep. Mia Love from Utah.

     It is so great to see the future of the pro-life movement so enthused and anxious to be the generation that sees an end to Roe v Wade and less abortion.  I can’t tell you who yet, because the deal is not done, but the speaker at our Celebrate Life dinner on May 16th at the San Marino Club, will be telling us all just how that is going to be accomplished!!!  As soon as I know for sure, I will send a separate email.

     Speaking of the Celebrate Life dinner—don’t forget ads for the Resource Book.  We really need to increase the number of ads!  If each of you got just one ad, it would really help.  The proceeds from the Celebrate Life dinner and the Resource Book fund the main office for the entire year.  I am attaching a contract to this email and am asking that you really think hard about who you might approach to take an ad.  If someone wants to see the book, please let me know and we will get one to him/her.  It is really a classy publication and a great resource for faith communities.

     The dinner is also accompanied by a Silent Auction.  There are always really great items in the auction!  If you have something that you would like to donate, please call Chris at the main office, 734-524-0162, and let her know.  Diane T. bid on a 3 day stay on a lovely lake near Gaylord and won.  It was great!!

     The annual Baby Shower is March 12.  If your faith community wants to sponsor one, it is not too late.  Call the main office and let Chris know 734-524-0162.  I am attaching a flyer with the shower locations on it.  If you can post it somewhere, folks who might want to donate will find a location near them.

     With the arrival of spring (whenever it comes!) the ground will soften and we can get our white crosses in the ground.  Our cross display coordinator, Mara Ongcapin (248) 925-6918 will be happy to set you up with a date for your faith community to have the crosses.  They are a powerful witness to sad number of abortions done in our country every day. 

     Our volunteer luncheon is tentatively set for March 25th, at Joe Bologna’s in Sterling Hts (17 Mile Rd and Dequindre—same place as last year.  Watch for the invitation in the mail.  If someone else has helped you with your pro-life activities this year, please let me know so we can invite them too. 

Love Life!

Diane
