LIFESPAN WAYNE COUNTY/DOWNRIVER CHAPTER REPRESENTATIVE MEMO: JUNE 2015

May 15, 2015

Dear Pastors, Youth Leaders and Church Representatives:

Enclosed you will find the June Church Notes and Jeopardy for Life information. Please post these fliers wherever possible and bring it to the attention of your pastor, youth group coordinators, pro-life groups and any other interested parties.

Thank you to everyone who made it out to our Celebrate Life Annual Dinner at San Marino! It was a great evening with fellow pro-lifers! Thank you to everyone who worked on Mother’s Day Flowers! Because of all of your hard work, LIFESPAN can continue to do the work that we do! Have you renewed your membership with LIFESPAN?

We would love to be able to say that 100% of our Church Reps have shown their commitment to the pro-life movement, by supporting LIFESPAN through membership.

UPCOMING EVENTS: we hope that you can participate in some, if not all:

  • Father’s Day Candy and Pens: Father’s Day is just around the corner and, similar to Mother’s Day, we will have candy bars with the message, “Thanks, Dad, for Life! Happy Father’s Day!” and pens with the same message on the barrel. The process for Father’s Day is the same for Mother’s Day. Be sure to talk with your pastor about these great ways to honor these amazing men! Each are given to churches on consignment (similar to how we handle luminaries in January); we put together an order for you, you pick up the boxes from our office, set up a table or have people (this could be a great thing for kids) with baskets of candy bars and pens to hand out to people leaving from Mass, collect donations (suggested donation is $1, but you will always have a few people who give more and you will always get a kid who comes up with a quarter or fifty cents), and return the money and any leftover candy or pens to the office. It is very simple and is a great way to raise awareness of LIFE and fundraise for LIFESPAN, at the same time honoring those amazing men in our lives: Dads, Grandpas, Uncles, etc. If you have any questions, just call/email our office! Help Wanted!
  • LIFESPAN is looking for volunteers to be on a Garage Sale Committee. Do you love garage sales? We have someone in Plymouth who has graciously given us the use of a prime location for a garage sale to benefit LIFESPAN. The date of sale can be anytime from April to October 2015. Volunteers are needed to plan the sale as soon as possible. We are hoping to make this an annual event.
  • Help Wanted! LIFESPAN is looking for volunteers to be on a CIDER Walk Committee. Do you want to help make this year’s CIDER Walk the most fun and successful one, yet? The Committee is already working on this year’s Walk, but new ideas/input are needed from people like YOU! Call/email our office to volunteer!
  • Pro-Life Jeopardy! Registration is open until June 25th! Make sure and encourage youth ages 12-19 to sign up!

Need additional copies of any of the fliers? Please contact our office and we will be glad to provide them for you.

Yours in LIFE,

Eileen Brandt

Director, Wayne County/Downriver Chapter
