Press coverage September 2008

Good morning my fellow WCR members and readers! I wanted to share with you an article on this project we have been working on all year!

We are celebrating our first years success on September 27th! It has been a very busy this year getting this project up and running..........but we did it and we are proud!

Our local Chapter made the on line news paper, and we have claims from other media that they will cover as I share with you the 1st of many (I hope)!

There is a post of mine currently featured on active rain that refers to the Habitat home that our local chapter participated in............. this was funded through this foundation and labor came from WCR members.

Our local chapter is making a difference in our committy..................I am very proud to be be a member of WCR and connected with such wonderful woman!

A BIG thank you to my senior volunteers!

Collating and book making was the plan for the day yesterday. ICCF who has partnered with us for the F.L.O.W. foundation, called in their senior volunteers. We had fun and they worked hard to get it all done. I got to learn how to use a binding machine! The books look great.........Mary Mishler made the lay out and Brendan O'Driscoll printed the pages for us. Which has been wonderful, as everything needed to get this foundation up and running has been donated! So thus far............every penny donated has been used for the foundation. Not ONE admin cost as of yet!
This foundation was meant to be a community project and it really has turned out that way. People from all over have pitched in to help!
I so enjoy all the new people I get to meet. Here is a pic of my senior volunteers hard at work:
