Wow! The energy at the Publik House was fantastic. From 9-11:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 28th we rocked the place with wonderful music from the Radio Junkies and a fabulous silent auction. Erin Nelson, a children's book author from Mass. was present for a booksigning. Pizza and other appetizers were donated by the Publik House. Thank you to Jeannette for making this such a wonderful event for us. Thank you to the February 2012 mission team for all the hard work you did to make this happen; Michaele Brobston, Heidi Brewer, Theresa Hayes and Maribeth Wallingford.
I've known Jane Morrison from Mechanicville for many years now. She has always been a wonderful friend of our organization. Jane has been creating the most beautiful paintings from the photos we bring back from our mission trips to Haiti and Zimbabwe. The YMCA in Clifton Park will feature Jane's artwork in their "love" artshow. Please stop in to see her paintings and check out the Y while you are there!
It's January 12th, the 2nd anniversary of the earthquake in Haiti. The Times Union has done a wonderful story about Haiti and we were included. Thank you Paul Grondahl. We are getting many phone calls and e-mails today--thank you for contacting us. There is so much to do in 2012 and we will begin by posting more often on this blog. The web-site will be refreshed and we will be making every effort to keep you up-to-date with our work.
Look for an updated list of supplies needed for our mission trips and other information on how you can become involved. We are looking for mission team members who are willing to travel to Haiti and Zimbabwe. Please contact us at 859-4424 with any questions you may have--we'd love to hear from you!
