Widow Poinsettia Delivery - Sat. Dec. 22 at 8:00 AM

A small token that can bring a large amount of Joy.

Meet at Gus's Diner (behind Wendy's) at 8:00 for breakfast. We will then divide into groups and visit the Widows' home to deliver the flowers and spend some time with them if they are home. Contact Mark Janke at 336-5796 if you have any questions. If you have never done this before, consider it this year. It is a great way to honor our departed Brothers and tell the Widows how special they are to us.
