Hello Ladies of the Daughters of Erin,

The Bowling Extravaganza is the next week. It's always a fun time, we hope to see you with family and friends!

If you are interested in running for office, please let me or Kathy Burke know. Don't forget to renew your membership by the April meeting so you can vote!

Thank you,

The April meeting is Sunday, April 14 at Old Trinity Lutheran Church, 404 East 4th St. Hospitality asks us to bring spring-themed goodies.


Our charity for April is Mommies Matters. Mommies Matter provides an extension of pregnancy care services by journeying with single mothers through their pregnancies, the birth of their child and beyond. They are in great need of Pull-Up's in Size 2, 3 & 4T along with wipes. Any donations are appreciated. If you need them picked up, please call or text Cheryl Costello at 614-774-8879.

We donated 75 Easter baskets to Franklin County Children Services and dropped them off on Friday, March 22. This enabled the FCCS staff to distribute them to Kinship Families with children along with any emergency placements they received through Easter. They were very appreciative.

Our charity for May is Domestic Violence Shelter's in Ohio, we'll have information at the April meeting.

If you have questions about Charities, please contact Cheryl Costello at 614-774-8879 (text or call) or email cherylcostello@yahoo.com.
