OUTREACH “THANK YOU NOTES”: The Outreach Committee has received several gracious thank you notes for donations from Washington Memorial Chapel. They include: St. Peter’s Episcopal Church for our donation of $500. (for new kitchen equipment,)  Women Against Abuse for our donation of $1,125. and Operation Gratitude for the many hats and scarves our Chapel volunteers have made.  We would like to share with you the first paragraph of the letter from Operation Gratitude. “On behalf or Operation Gratitude and the heroes who receive our care packages, I thank you for your generous donation of 4 handmade hats and 79 handmade scarves.  Your contribution will enable us to send over 200,000 “chock full” Care Packages this year to the tens of thousands of brave men and women still deployed overseas in harsh and remote areas; to their children anxiously awaiting their return; and to New Recruits and First Responders across our great country.” We have 4 hats and 23 scarves for Operation Gratitude now and our volunteers and busy knitting and crocheting more.  If you would like to help, there is a box with more information in the Lafayette Room. We would like to thank you for your generous support of the Outreach projects.
