Family Day Activities planned for Feb. 19 by Castor & Dist. FCSS

“She Has a Name” at the Lighthouse Church in Castor

Jim & Jeanette Schaffner are very pleased to announce that their daughter-in-law Anita, Kelley’s wife, has finally gotten a kidney transplant. She had been waiting for nearly 18 years for this to happen, and it is working very well.

Monday January 29 was the first potluck of the year at the Castor Golden Circle. The dinner was well attended, with about 30 people sharing in a meal and conversation. Afterwards the Golden Circle held their annual organizational meeting. Mary Trieber stepped down as president, and Jim Culham was elected as new president. A new secretary was also elected, with many people passing on the nomination before Mary Trieber accepted and was voted in. All other positions remained in place.

On Tuesday Jan 30, the Castor & District FCSS showed the movie, “She Has a Name” at the Lighthouse Church. Ten people came out to watch and learn about human trafficking through this powerful movie. Funds donated during the event will be given to the Association of Communities Against Abuse.
