We are currently looking for volunteers to help at the gates during the Cannon Valley Fair. For the past few years, Shepherd’s Center has helped at the fair, as one of our fundraising events. It is always a challenge to line up enough volunteers and we are asking anyone that would be willing to help to please contact us. The days we need help include July 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th, and if
you’d like to work with family or friends that can certainly be arranged.
Thank you so much to those who donated to Shepherd’s Center this past month. Thank you to the VFW Ladies Auxiliarry Post
4452, area churches and the Chuck Scofield and the Rotary Club of Cannon Falls. Chuck recently designated funds from the Rotary to Shepherd’s Center and we greatly appreciate it. Memorial donations were given this month in honor of Mary Olson, Karen Keidt and Verdel Ludwitzke.
For those of you in need of certain medical equipment, Shepherd’s Center may be able to help. We have a list of individuals
who have equipment available to borrow and we can match you up with that person. If you are in need, or have equipment you’d be willing to let people use, please give us a call at 507-263-2136 or email email@example.com.
