WOW, What a WEEK:)

May 12, 2006  |     |   General

This week has been fantastic.

The kick- off was the Open Door Mission’s Clergy Appreciation Luncheon. It was an opportunity to say,” thank you” to more than 65 clergy guests. To show our deep appreciation for their support in “Lives Being Changed.”

On Tuesday, in Dunlap, IA., I spoke to more than 50 ladies at the Annual Community Ladies Tea. I look forward to seeing the photo’s of this event. I will be posting them at a later date.

The Open Door Mission is busy Spring Cleaning, inside and out. Open Door Mission’s “Keep Omaha Beautiful” team is busy picking up garbage outside the Mission, all the way down Locust and Abbott Drive to the downtown and Gene Leahy Mall area. This is an opportunity for the guests of Open Door Mission to do community service and say, “thank you” to the community for their support.

On Saturday, the Pancake Man will be serving up breakfast to more than 320 men, women and children. Then in the afternoon, the Harley Davidson Club will be arriving with items from their Spring drive such as food, furniture and clothing. Exciting:)

All week, the Community Services department has been handing out Mother’s Day baskets to women. These women are seeking assistance and in need of food, furniture or clothing. They live in their own homes trying to make ends meet.

Don’t forget to honor special women in your life on Sunday:)
