Let us be done with fault-finding and leave off
May we put away all pretense and meet each other face to face,
without self-pity and without prejudice.
May we never be hasty in judgement and always generous.
Let us take time for all things.
Make us grow calm, serene, gentle.
Teach us to put into action our better impulses, straight-forward and unafraid.
Grant that we may realize it is the little things that create differences.
That in the big things of life we are at one.
And may we strive to touch and to know the great common, human heart of us all,
and oh, Lord God, let us not forget to be kind.

The Blood Bank at St Norbert
The Blood Bank event will be at St Norbert College on September 18th, 2014 from 10:45a.m. to 6:00p.m. For more information Please contact Sue Smullen at 336-2072. Thank you for your help.
Six years ago our club started a tutoring program with several of the elementary schools in De Pere. In the past, the program has been self directed. Since we are now keeping track of volunteer hours and doing club reports, we need a chairperson. Sue Smullen has volunteered to help in that capacity. If you are interested in getting involved or have any questions, call Sue at 336-2072 and let her know at which school you'd like to volunteer for the upcoming calendar school year. The schools require you to fill out a form for a background check which must be completed by the time school starts. In the past the schools have asked for a one hour commitment 2, 3 or 4 times per month, usually beginning in October. This has been a rewarding experience for those who have been involved in the past, and we are hoping for more volunteers for the upcoming school year.
Domestic Violence Awareness
GFWC has made this a signature project this year through the Success for Survivors Scholarship program which helps domestic abuse survivors gain education to allow them to reshape their futures through higher education. If you are interested in making a difference by being involved in this effort, you may send a tax deductible donation to the GFWC Signature Project Fund by calling 1-800-443-4392 for more information, or by emailing the coordinator, Michele J. Mount at MMount@GFWC.org
