"I served and saw that service is joy." Kahlil Gibran

"I slept and I dreamed that life is all joy. I woke and I saw that life is all service. I served and I saw that service is joy.” 
                                                                   ― Kahlil Gibran

Sewing kits ready to be assembled
 Monday, November 7th we met at Carolyn's home for a combination of service projects.  We are finishing the last few things for our Festival of Trees Christmas tree, working on items to sell in the Festival Gift Shop.  We collected and put together 16 sewing kits for the Give Utah Refugee Connection for  families that have moved to this area.  We also worked on Shape Toys that are placed in School Kits and sent to schools throughout the world through the Utah Humanitarian Center spearheaded by Roseann Gunther and the Launfal Foundation.
