Happy New Year!

Happy 2018!  With all best wishes and prayers that this year will be one where we know and experience health, peace and joy!

A quick update on next Monday’s meal swap… there will be 11 families swapping, as Essia is taking the month off due to heightened busyness with basketball coaching.  Please prep 11 and bring 10 entrees to the swap.

We didn’t have anyone officially lined up to gift meals to in January, so I’d like to put my friend Liz in for this month… we gifted meals to her last year, so you may remember their situation…. her husband has a rare autoimmune disease that caused his sudden paralysis in March.  The disease is progressing and he has spent the past 2 weeks in Intensive Care.  They are at Mayo, so it’s been tons of driving and schedule juggling as Liz also tries to maintain life and stability for their 8 year old twin boys.  If its the right thing for you this month, the gift of meals would be much appreciated by their family.

I look forward to seeing many of you next Monday evening at 8 pm!
