Did You Know?
April is National Arab American Heritage Month
Arab Americans and Americans of Middle Eastern heritage have a long history in the United States. They are U.S. military heroes, entertainers, politicians and scientists. They are Lebanese, Egyptian, Iraqi and more. Yet the representation of Arab Americans in the mainstream media tends to be quite limited. Arabs are typically featured on the news when Islam, hate crimes or terrorism are the topics at hand. Arab American Heritage Month, observed in April, marks a time to reflect on the contributions Arab Americans have made to the U.S. and the diverse group of people who make up the nation’s Middle Eastern population.
Sunday, April 23
The meeting will follow worship. We will have one combined worship service at 10:30 am.
Personal Care Kits
Last year, Lake Edge sent 113 Personal Care Kits to LWR (Lutheran World Relief). We are now collecting items for this year with a goal of 115 Kits.
There are only five items in the Personal Care Kits:
Bath Towel (20”x40”to52”x27” new, light weight, dark colors recommended)
Toothbrush (adult size only)
Soap (Bath-size- 4oz to 5oz size - 2 bars per kit)
Any of these items would be appreciated. The basket for these items is on the bookcase shelf leading to the library. Thanks for your help. Global Outreach.
Knitters & Crocheters
This year, 2016, we knit more mittens, hats, and scarves than ever before. Our grand total of Hats distributed this year was 324. All were given to people who didn’t have proper cold weather protection including children and youth in Head Start and 4K through elementary school; and adults. We have just distributed hats, scarves and mittens to 5 different Elementary schools in Madison including Glendale, Hawthorne, Lowell, Schenk, and Lindburgh schools. From this total, D’neece Hettrick’s Operation Fresh Start group also received hats and mittens. Residents of the Triangle (located in the area of Regent, S. Park Street, and W. Washington Ave) along with adults at the Jail, River Food Pantry, Belmont Nursing Home, and Karmenta Nursing Home received sets of Hats and scarves. And sets of Hats and Mittens were given to a 4-K Head start program in Green Bay, Wisconsin. This year, we have sent 65 baby blankets and 22 baby hats to Global Health Ministries (Minnesota) which they send to their Global Partners in developing countries. And we had lap robes or prayer shawls available in November. Some are still available in the Luther room (off the Library) just help yourself. We have been busy. We also knit Baby Hats for our Lake Edge babies. Thanks to funds from Thrivent and one of our knitters, Judy Davidson has purchased yarn. Yarn that you have donated has also been put to great use. Thank you.
We meet every Monday at 1 pm in the Library. All are welcome. If you can’t meet at this time, patterns and yarn are available. Contact Bonnie Gudmandsen or Joan Martin. Thank you for your continued support of this ministry.
