service we would like to recognize all of our
members who will be graduating from high school
this year. We would also like to recognize all
our members who have graduated from college in
the past six months or who will be graduating
this spring. We would appreciate it if the
graduating students or their parents would
notify the office of those who are graduating,
including from what high school or college. We
would also like to know who of our graduates
will be able to attend worship on May 31st when
this recognition will take place. Thank you, in

It takes a lot of work to keep East Koshkonong
Lutheran Church looking and running the way we
all want it to. Two lists are located on the
table in the council room (located across the
hall from the church office). The Jobs List
contains items to be cleaned, repaired,
replaced, etc. The Jobs Completed List contains
items that have been completed and by whom.
Please help us move items from the Jobs List to
the Jobs Completed List with your time, talent
and resources as you are able. Add items that
need to be done to the Jobs List so others know
of them. Thank you for all your support!
Do you play the drums or are interested in
learning how? East Koshkonong has a drum set
eagerly waiting to be played.
Check Out the Cart in Friendship Hall!
People gathered at EKLC this week to do some spring
cleaning in the kitchen. There is a cart of items in Friendship Hall of
items that are no longer needed in the kitchen or containers/lids left

Visiting Our Members
Sunday School Children
In February, the Sunday school children made a list of things that made them
smile to pack in bags full of joy for our home bound members. The contents
included a mug, hot cocoa mix, coffee, donuts, squish balls, Chocolate bars,
plastic necklace, caramel candies, banana and a note and pictured colored by
our students. These bags were then hand delivered to the dozen members from
Edgerton, Cambridge, Fort Atkinson, Watertown and Whitewater. The bags
worked and brought a lot of joy to many different lives last month.
