HYGIENE BAGS/DUCK VALLEY SUPPLIES:  A very hearty thanks to all the workers of the monthly craft group who have done such a super job making hygiene bags for West Middle School.  Please take a look at all the large and small bags they have crafted on display on the railroad table in the Koininina Room.  Thanks so much for your efforts!   Your light shines brightly.  We are still collecting hygiene items until the middle of September when we will assemble our bags and deliver them to West.   We appreciate your time and donations.  It is that time of year that we collect school supplies for the Duck Valley Indian Reservation.  The school sales have started  and the boxes in the narthex are filling up.  Thanks again for loading up Steve Van Atter’s pickup!  We take boxes of paper, backpacks, supplies, gently used coats, cash donations, etc.  for our August delivery.   Thanks again for your generosity.
