Life Outreach Center banquet

To the editor:

As the director of the Life Outreach Center, I wish to thank all that were in attendance at our banquet held at the Siskiwit Reception Hall in October. This banquet could not have happened without the help of several people.

I would like to extend a heart-felt thank you to the following:

Joel Keranen — for the use of the Siskiwit Reception Hall; underwriters-financing the banquet; Table Hosts-for inviting all of your guests; Marc Norton-printing our invitations and pledge cards; Pearl Bekkala-giving her testimony; Kathy Strzyzykowski-our keynote speaker; David Brown-performing live music; Laura Moore-for all the decorations; Jerry Keranen-giving the opening prayer; Father Corey Litzner-giving the closing prayer; Tony Laidlaw-emcee for the night; Christa Gardner and girls-cleaning up and dish washing; Eric Byykkonen-our outgoing Director for his years of service; and Board Members-for all of your endless help pulling this banquet together, especially Mike Moore.

Last but not least, I wish to thank all in attendance who were able to donate to our cause and give pledges. We are so appreciative of your gift and your confidence in our ministry. Without all of you, our work with women and their families would not be possible. Without you, we would not have the Life Outreach Center. We know that God continues to guide us and we look forward to what this next year has in store for us.
