To the editor:

We personally would like to thank Sandy Goodell. She had faith in us to recommend we direct the mission. She set the wheels in motion to succeed; we picked up and took her direction.
A heartfelt thank you to the Presbytery of Mackinac and Portage Lake United Church parishioners for their faith in our Mission. A special thanks to the consistory, Harold/Liz, Lois, Sherry and husband, Barb, Beth and Ed.

The biggest thank you to this great community we live in who have donated. Without the donations, our doors could not open. The list goes on and I only have 400 words to do this. There are not enough words in the language or on this page to express our thanks and acknowledge everyone by name, but we truly thank you.
Have a wonderful holiday and God Bless everyone in the coming year.
