On February 7th over 20 of our members spent the morning at the Clinic. After a short business meeting, Michelle DiBendetto and Robin McGinnis joined us and spoke about the new Centering Program for expectant mothers, the current state of the vaccines for those on CHIP insurance, and the fact that they are still looking for $40,000 for the digital x-ray machine for the dental clinic. Michelle and Robin then led us on a wonderful, informative tour of the Clinic.
Associate Member, Anna Schuster, continues to donate proceeds from the Infant Welfare designated booth she opened up at her Highwood shop Anna’s Warehouse & Marketplace. The booth will accept approved donations all year long and 100% of sales will go to the clinic in memory of our dear friend, Lanie Camino, a member of our Chapter for 45 years. Please come shop - there are great finds at unbelievable prices and inventory is added weekly. If you would like to donate an item, please email Jennifer Mower firstname.lastname@example.org.
On May 5th we had a fun evening celebrating Cinco de Mayo with our new members and old LFIW friends.
We are well underway planning for Antiques in the Field, Sunday, September 9th. This is always a fun day with all the proceeds going to Infant Welfare. We hope you will join us.
