Therefore, on August 13, a visit from Elvis Comedy was a wonderful treat for our Members, staff, and volunteers. Not only was the interactive show funny, but it gave everyone a chance to say something to our group, whether it be bars of encouragement to brave testimonials. We all physically and mentally benefitted from the event.
A delicious turkey dinner was prepared by Mario and passed out by Doris, making this "dinner and a show" one to remember! Thank you to all who made this possible!
It's because of Repairers like you that we can do so much for our Members with so little. For example, the Zeta Phi Beta sorority -Sigma Alpha Zeta Chapter donated a large basket of dental supplies, such as toothpaste and toothbrushes, as well as a generous financial donation. The United Ushers of WI presented us with a generous financial donation, as well.
It shows that Repairers of the Breach doesn't begin or end at our doors. Our entire community is part of Repairers of the Breach, including you.
Thank you for being a Repairer, and thank you to Zeta Phi Beta and United Ushers of WI!
