LIFESPAN OAKLAND/MACOMB REPRESENTATIVE MEMO: MAY 2015

Hi Folks!

It’s coming.  I can smell it.  I can feel it.  My grass is turning green.  Spring is coming!!!  Thank goodness!

We hope you all had a very nice Easter and that all the kids in your lives enjoyed their vacations.  I know the high school juniors are going back to the ACT test.  Good luck to all.

Of course the main topic for discussion this month is the Celebrate Life Dinner on May 5th at the San Marino Club in Troy.  We are really encouraging everyone to try and come this year as we are also celebrating our 45th Anniversary!!!  What a long time we have been on this journey and we could not keep doing it without all of you!  Please try to attend.  Perhaps your faith community would send you and a spouse/friend.  As usual we have the Silent Auction and Tin Can Raffle as well as some carefully chosen words from some of us who were here at the beginning of our pro-life struggle and a glimpse into the future leaders of this cause.  We will prevail!  Come join us in celebrating Life, and LIFESPAN!

We are still In need of a few good items for the Silent Auction.  Do you own a business—know someone who does—who would offer a gift certificate and get a little publicity at the same time.  Someone who has a time share, is a dentist who would offer a cleaning (I’m serious!); know a jeweler who has a special piece to offer; a dog walking service; a hairdresser or makeup artist who would donate a service.  The list goes on.  Put on your thinking caps and see if you can come up with something.  We really need your help.

Don’t forget to send us your Carnation orders.  Our friend at Affordable Flowers is really great to work with but the sooner we can get our order to him the easier his job is.

PLEASE SHARE WITH ALL YOUTH MINISTERS BEFORE YOUTH MEETINGS END FOR THE SUMMER—our Pro-life Jeopardy game is set for Saturday, August 8th.  Our teams are divided into age groups and get a study guide so that they will be able to provide the pro-life questions to the pro-life answers on the Jeopardy board.  Prizes will be awarded and, of course, pizza will be served.  This is a great opportunity to help our young people become more familiar with pro-life issues and give them the knowledge needed to explain them to their friends.  And it is fun too!!!

Attached you will also find the order form for the Father’s Day Candy Bars.  We generally need to order them right after Mother’s Day so hang on to them until you are finished with the flowers and then send your orders in.  (of course you can send them in before  Mother’s Day too)

Enjoy the spring weather—but don’t forget your umbrellas!

Love Life! Diane and Lynn
