What do you get when you cross images of
“A Christmas Story” and images from the “Duluth” clothing company? You get a unique Christmas ornament-and a lot of laughter.

As some of you might have noticed, that a few of the Christmas Ornaments on our tree vary greatly from what are mostly along traditional Christmas themes. Since all of our ornaments are made by a variety of veterans and their family members, ornaments like this one do sometimes make it on to our tree. But fear not-we are very careful when it is time to select an ornament for a donor. In fact, this ornament had just been finished when one of our donors- a veteran herself saw it and said she wanted to adopt it this year for her husband-who is also a veteran.


A big thank you to the ladies of the LWML.
We are most blessed to have your support!


Thank you to our wonderful Thrivent Choice Members. This year you have truly helped our ministry to thrive!
