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.
