Last week, the Club voted to make a donation to Erin Calahin, a 9 year-old girl in Vernon Township who is battling leukemia. Her family has started a blog of their own on a site called Caring Bridge - link provided here - http://www.caringbridge.org/cb/viewHome.do. This is terrific way to see how she is doing and, it should be added, she is doing well so far. Let's keep Erin in our thoughts and prayers.
In other news, DASI (Domestic Abuse Services, Inc.) has let us know that transitional housing building will be open towards the end of August. The Club is sponsoring Apartment #3. This is an important facility for DASI as it will allow them to provide safe, clean, secure housing for mothers and children seeking shelter from abusive situations at home. Several Club members have offered to donate furniture and appliances to help furnish this apartment; those members will be contacted towards the end of the month to coordinate the pickup of their items. Thanks to Theresa Vihti for heading this effort up with regard to our contribution to this program.
A reminder here - District Governor George Mitola will be visiting with us on September 18.
