Thanks, CES Volunteers!
Thank you to nine outstanding volunteers who helped on August 20, delivering groceries for Community Emergency Service to residents in the three buildings that comprise Hiawatha Towers. Our hard-working crew included Carl Christopherson, Johan Christopherson, Dave Engelsgaard, Tim and Adela Engelsgaard, Lisa Hannon, Bill Kaemmerer, Mark Lofthus, and Lee Mosher. Couldn’t help in August? There’s another chance for many hands to make light work, on Monday, Oct. 22. Contact Mark Lofthus or the church office to volunteer or to seek more information.
