FSL Summer Newsletter: July 2017

Presidents Message: 
Hello to all my fellow FSL girls! I truly can’t believe how fast this summer has flown by. I hope you have all had a great summer and are excited to get this new year of FSL started! I am excited about all the great things this group can and will accomplish this year. I hope you all will come with a heart full of COMPASSION to serve, CARING for others, and PRIDE in what we do. What we accomplish every year is hard work at times, but to some of the people we help, it is their whole world. My hope for the year is we do everything whole heartedly and restore the PASSION
in ourselves, our group, and in our community!

While we were Away:

  • Tracey Lawton’s son George graduated from Findlay High School and is moving on to BGSU.
  • Nichole Callicutt ran her first half marathon with recent sustainer Natalie Stearns. They ran the Glass City Marathon in Toledo, Ohio.
  • Tracey Lawton did her fist Spartan Race in Indiana alongside her family.
  • Allie Scurria and her husband Brian are expecting their first child in December!
  • Our dear friend and recent sustainer, Miranda Young, is moving to Mississippi. We will miss her dearly!
  • On July 6th, 9 total members of FSL met at Alanna’s to house a Community Conversation conducted by Beverly Phillips of the United Way. It was a great night full of discussion, concern, and suggestions for our community and city.

Make A Difference Day (MADD)

This year’s Make A Difference Day took place on October 1. Nineteen women spent the day donating their time to help make a house into a home for a local family. FSL took part in the Women’s Habitat for Humanity build in Arlington, OH. They completed landscaping tasks as well as finishing up last minute touches before turning the house back over to the builders. The members even went above and beyond in order to furnish a room for the young girl moving into the home.
