-Thank you to Deacon Bob and Sue Cox for their donation of 12 yard chairs for our clients to use while practicing social distancing as they wait in line to be served, You have brought a smile to each face today! Thank you!
- We sent a thank you note to HY-KA Products Co/ Midwest Fasteners for their donation of 150 - 8" x10" posters featuring GOOD HEALTH PRACTICES. Rob found the poster in Walmart and I emailed them for permission to copy for our clients health and nutrition requirements. They emailed back, almost right away, and said they did not want us to use the church ink and paper so they were sending us 150 copies. The posters arrived a week later. Thank you HY-KA Products Co/Midwest Fasteners!
