Spring Break- South Dakota Style

Again this March, we were so fortunate to be joined by a group of college students from Mount Marty College in Yankton, South Dakota. Students spent the week working at the Palmer Home in Columbus, Noxubee County schools, as well as at The Dwelling Place. We so appreciated their generous spirit and enthusiasm.

The 'Remnant' Increases

At our February Community and Associate gathering, only a 'remnant' were able to attend. Illness and bad weather shrank the ranks by two-thirds.

On our day of prayer and commitment, April 29th, we fared better. Though five Community and two associates were unable to attend, we welcomed Mary Crone as a candidate for Community and Joy Lyons as she renewed her commitment as a Companion. Sue Millender, Linda Breazeale, and Diana Bridges renewed their commitments as Associates, and Joan Bartik became a new Associate.
