THANK YOU TO:
THE FAMILY OF FLORENCE BAUER

We thank the family of Florence Bauer for the donation of $100 in memory of Florence, who sewed clothes, diaper bags, quilts, and toys for Creative Caring Hearts. In addition to their donation, another $25 was donated directly to CCH in Florence's name. Thank you so much!
THANK YOU TO:
RUTH STRASSBURG
Ruth donated clothing to the consignment shop Concepts with the understanding that any money generated should be donated to Creative Caring Hearts.  So far, CCH has received $23.10!  This money has already been happily invested in red, white, and blue ribbon for July baby hats plus lots of elastic to be used in the bottoms of the gowns. Thanks so much, Ruth!
DONATION TO ROMANIA
Sally Christie and others are currently on another mission trip.  Last year we supported their trip to South Africa. This year they are in Romania. We sent along preemie-sized sleepers, in addition to quilts, afghans, booties, mittens, sweaters, and taggies. For information on where these items went, please visit:

FRIDAY, JULY 3
CCH will be on the Square starting at 4:30 p.m. for the Family Night activities taking place before the weekly city band concert. We will be selling baby stuffed baseballs, dishcloths, bags for shopping, taggies, and bottled water. Spread the word to your friends to stop by and see us between 4:30 and 7 p.m.

Thank you to those of you who volunteered to help. I've misplaced the list, but you know who you are. Please plan to be at the Square around 4:30 on Friday. Even if you are not scheduled to work, please stop by to hear the music and say "hi".

GETTING TO KNOW YOU:
CAROLINE MURPHY
Caroline, who has crocheted perhaps close to 1000 afghans for CCH over the last ten years, was a kindergarten teacher for 35 years, retiring from Port Washington and moving to their Chain of Lakes home with her husband Jerry six years ago. She originally learned to crochet as a grade school-aged child from her mom, a home economics teacher. Caroline especially enjoys crocheting when her husband and she travel, returning from each trip with several bags of afghans, each nicely packed in an individual plastic bag and bundled in several paper bags. Jerry and Caroline have three grown children and three grandchildren, Matthew, Michael, and brand-new granddaughter, Samantha Grace, who Grandma Caroline is enjoying immensely. Thanks for all you do for CCH, Caroline!
