On May 7 the Spring Luncheon was very well attended. With over 100 members present we welcomed 4 new members. These new members had already been seen at various workshops already diving right into The Christ Child Society.
We heard some enlightening information from Rev. Joshua Gale from Just Neighbors in Fort Wayne. Just Neighbors mission is to serve homeless families by uniting, religious congregations, community volunteers, and local agencies . This is done in a cooperative effort to provide shelter, meals, and compassionate professional support. Christ Child Society Fort Wayne provides backpacks and layettes to this mission.
Two members received the Red Wagon Award. It is awarded to individuals who have contributed an extraordinary level of service our Christ Child Society chapter in support of its' mission to serve children & families in need, for the love of the Christ Child. Lynda Rittenhouse, who does all the ordering for our Crib Club and Layettes ministries & Carrie Rice, who headed up our Baby Bottle fundraiser for the last 3 years and is also part of our communications team. Both have made outstanding contributions to our chapter and we thank them for their service!
