Rockwell Eastern star meets a need at Rowan Helping Ministries

When the Rowan Helping Ministries shelter put out a plea for sheets and pillows, the Rockwell Order of the Eastern Star got busy collecting needed items. Shirley Cranford, Worthy Matron Belinda Corl and Janice Wolfe brought 54 new pillows and 31 pillow cases that their chapter collected for shelter guests to use. They also got Sarah Pressley of the Spencer Chapter 31 involved in the project. A member of the Starry Night Quilting Guild, Sarah made 37 flat sheets and 34 pillow cases for the shelter from fabric donated by Larry Waggoner. The Rockwell Order of the Eastern Star frequently contributes items needed in the shelter. These in-kind donations allow Rowan Helping Ministries to use financial donations to help clients with financial crises and to cover its operating and program costs.

The Phoenix Readers

Submitted

Who can? You can…enjoy the rhymes and works of Dr. Seuss! Only for kids? No way, I say…

Adults, as well as children, enjoy a good yarn, a chuckle over a Sneetch, and the playfulness that permeates Dr. Seuss’ story-poems. He encourages children and adults to see the world — not as usual — but upside-down or from the top of a mound of turtles!

The Phoenix Readers, directed by Jim Epperson, is available to perform this 30 minute program of Dr. Seuss poems and stories, starting in November. There is no charge for the program although a donation to the Center for Faith and the Arts is welcomed. To schedule a performance or for more information, contact Kate Davis, 703-217-1027, kldavis302@gmail.com
