Big news and another big event - Aria MacDonald

Big news and another big event

Last night we where proud to attend another fundraising function for Aria. Our churches got together with the organisation of Cathy Tasker and others. Covenant Church hosted a fundraising Cafe for Aria. Yummy food was consumed and generous donations where given. Over $1,400 was raised for Aria!!! A big thank you to all involved whose hard work made it possible.

In other big news Aria is going to be a big sister! Another MacDonald baby is on the way, due beginning of December. We are really happy and excited.

Also you can now donate via text.  Text Help Aria to 469 to donate $3.
