Thank-You Notes:A Gift
Have you ever helped a stranger without expecting recognition or reward? WELCA sponsors yearly fundraisers (Valentine Sweet Sale, Lefse and Pie Sale) and collects offerings at Circle meetings and luncheons. The funds are earmarked for our Unit Wide Mission Project for the year. The beneficiaries are typically unknown to us; we expect nothing in return. However, in giving, we receive—in the form of thank-you notes. I would like to share some of these gifts with you.
Thanks to everyone who generously give of their time and money in support of the Mission Project!
