LWML News - "SixPence"

May 1, 2018 - During the month of May the LWML is gathering items for Sixpence in Crete, which is an early childhood learning program for young women and their children. It is funded through the Crete Public School system. At the present time there are 42 children ages new born to three years old in this program. These children and mothers are in need of many items. Beginning the first Sunday in May, May 6, a display will be in the narthex with information about Sixpence. There will also be a list of items this program needs and samples of those items. We ask that you consider donating items and placing them in the container under the display. We thank you for your anticipated gifts to this program.
