Did you know that Cambridge Piggly Wiggly gives
money to EKLC for members shopping at their
store??? Here’s how it works…This program allows
nonprofit organizations to raise money to be
used however they see fit. Individuals collect
their receipts from the Cambridge Piggly Wiggly
(must be Cambridge store) throughout the year
and turn them in to EKLC in the narthex. Sue
Repyak, WELCA Treasurer for EKLC, tally’s the
receipts for a 1 percent rebate. The checks are
written twice a year, in January and July, for
all receipts turned in during the previous six
months. It adds up! So…bring in those Cambridge
Piggly Wiggly receipts!! Thank you Sue for your
dedication to this special ministry!
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!

EKLC is Gathering Supplies for LWR School Kits
(Lutheran World Relief)
Education is important for any community, especially where poverty or
disaster has limited the options for young people to reach their potential.
School Kits contain essential supplies to help children-and in some cases,
adults-continue learning despite the hardships they face. And that learning
leads to a better life for them, their families and their communities.
There is a bin in the narthex for collection of school supplies for the
kits. Please pick up any of these things when they go on sale soon. We
Spiral notebooks (70 count, wide or college-ruled)
Pencils (unsharpened #2)
Pens (no gel ink)
Crayons (16 or 24 count)
Pink erasers (2 1/2 inch)
Rulers (30 centimeter)
Just bring in any of these things that you can, and we will put them
together later closer to the shipping day.
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.
