Calling on CMHers at, or from, St. James, Lannon

I have been the St. James/CMH liaison for the past year. One of the initiatives for the year is to take part in a service project at St. James as a way to say thanks for the support we receive from St. James Parish in attending CMH.

Tomorrow is the Third Annual Jim Engel Memorial Bike Ride to help benefit the Mission trip this summer to Kansas City, KS. Please visit our mission trip blog site from July 18th–23rd to see pictures and read about what the kids are doing during their week in Kansas City at Jim Engel was a very good friend of Fr. Art's, who happened to pass away the day before the first benefit while riding his bike. Father Art has also been ill and hospitalized the past few weeks and has not been able to pump up the event, thus, numbers appear to be down.

Originally, our service project was to donate and serve lunch for the event. Since numbers are down, the only need was to supply the desserts as parents of participants are taking care of lunch. We've already purchased and donated the cookies from Sam's and individually bagged them with a label stating "donated by the St. James/CMH Families".

Here's where we really need your donations. Since time is not needed to help at this event, we're hoping you'll sponsor this event with a cash donation. We'd like to have enough money to get the kids home from Kansas. If you could write a check, put it in an envelope and note it's coming from a St. James/CMH family and drop it in the basket this weekend or throw it in the mail to:

St. James Parish
W220 N6588 Town Line Rd.
Menomonee Falls, WI 53051

Thanks for your Support!
Tammy Rinaldi
