SAMARITAN CENTER: Thank you to everyone who helped prepare, deliver and serve dinner to all of the visitors to the Samaritan Center on Sunday. They all appreciate you sharing your resources, talents and time. A special thank you to Paul & Barb D’Ambrosio who have coordinated our efforts to visit the Samaritan Center for several years. It is with great sadness that we announce that they wish to retire from this volunteer job! They will be missed. In order to continue our trips to the Samaritan Center we will need a new volunteer coordinator. If you would be interested in this job our next date to go to the Samaritan Center is February 15th. Barb is willing to train.
ATTENTION ALL BAKERS: In addition to the dinner we bring, the guests at the Samaritan Center love our home-baked desserts. Anyone wishing to bake an easily transported dessert please contact the human development office.
