Best news...both prayers and, a great medical team...
Sandy is now at home,
and her good humor is very much, intact!
Prayers, for former President Sandy; BIG SURGERY now in ICU, almost off ventilator-she has more to give in this life.
How fortunate were we to have Sharon Tindall share her quilts and West African journey. How she constructs her quilts, color use and symbols. Our Savior students asked great questions.
Today we received a grant to host a Thrivevent. $250 went to outreach of little hearts for children undergoing heart surgery and large hearts for Mended Hearts. Our group cut out the hearts from the material purchased. They will be ready to put together by our OAR (Offenders Aid and Restoration) clients.
Wonderful fellowship at the Arlington Baptist Church who used our clubhouse until they found a permanent home.
More photos of the holiday potluck..and, the two birthdays girls..Angela and Pat.
More donations to ASPAN for warmth in the winter.

We want to thank the The Woman's Club of Arlington Virginia for inviting our Director of Development to speak at their meeting today and for donating lots of goodies for our shelter animals! We are so grateful for their support!
SUCCESS! Everyone had fun today at the Bike Rodeo. Over 70 kids with parents turned out to get their bikes tuned, learn technique and ride the courses. Over 17 went for the 2 mile neighborhood ride too!
Fun APRIL 1st Meeting, no joke! (Could not resist). Thanks to Sandy Newton, we learned how to make Washi eggs, using beautiful papers and, had other crafting material (even silk neckties) for other ways one can decorate eggs. Sadly missed the last demo of shaving cream, with drops of food dye to make a marbleized pattern on eggs ( must dry thoroughly for minimum of 30 minute!).
WCA hosted the community forum on “Not Just Someone Else’s Problem” on Human Trafficking on March 7th. Good turnout, great presentation by nationally honored, William Wolf III, the head of JustAsk.Org , the leading trafficking education, Virginia based nonprofit. Their goal with community support is to educate to increase prevention. Lots of interesting questions especially to the presenter Mom of a High School victim as well as a trafficking victim who spent years, being abused.
Wonderful meeting today! It was special to donate 98 small pillows to the little mended hearts organization in person to Mom representatives.
To hear one of the Moms moved to almost tears of gratitude for the work we do to support them made the members who cut, stitch, and stuff them, feel very proud.
Lunch hosts Sandy and Cathy provided extra treats- The Mardi Gras King Cakes delicious (baby Jesus’s we’re removed, so no chocking) . Lunch was followed by a special presentation by member Bonnie Mangan on: “Women and the Civil War”. Bonnie is an avid, dedicated researcher on the Civil War and many of us left with new takeaway knowledge.
Always happy to get vegetables growing so more people can have fresh veggies.
