THANKS TO OTHERS WHO FOUND BOOKS
Mary Jo Feldman, Sue Hackbarth, and others have found great deals on infant books! Beverly Kirk and Kay Lutze donated books in memory of Joel Andelman’s mother. What fun it is to have a good supply on hand! Thanks so much!
SYMPATHY AND GRATITUDE TO THE FAMILY OF
DON SIEGRIST
Don Siegrist, husband of Virginia and father of Kay Lutze, passed away earlier this month. As part of his memorial, the family donated money, plus memorial checks from Sherry Cerne and Mary Lyn Musil. Our sincere sympathy and thanks go to the family! Don was a very special husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend!
CREATIVE CARING HEARTS AND CULVERS

10% of the proceeds from all sales during that time period will be donated to Creative Caring Hearts.

We will have a display of our items out for people to see.  If you can come to help out, that would be great, too!  Let your friends and family know.  Bring the neighbor kids out for ice cream!  Spread the word!  I've enclosed a "refrigerator reminder" for you to put on your refrigerator or copy to share with others.  See you there!

GETTING TO KNOW: 
ARLENE UNERTL
What an exciting year Arlene Unertl is having! Arlene, who has been one of CCH’s major fabric cutters from the beginning, is a retired home economics (FACE) teacher from Weyauwega-Fremont High School. She still continues to substitute teach many days every year. She started sewing on her grandmother’s treadle machine when she was 9 years old and joined 4-H. At the beginning of 2008, Lynn, the daughter of Arlene and husband Ron, married Todd. In September their son Mark got married. Arlene made the wedding dress for new daughter-in-law Ann. As if two weddings in one year isn’t enough excitement, Arlene and Ron will be first-time grandparents in late December. In between cutting fabric for CCH, Arlene has already sewed clothing and a quilt for this new baby! One of the best parts of CCH is how we all share in each other’s joys and sorrows! We have enjoyed this year of joy with Arlene—and appreciate all she does for CCH!
