We completed our 47th Annual Luminaira Sale in December. Sales were vibrant this year and we have hardly any left over stock. The following groups made our sale possible. Our Neighborhood Coordinators, Our Members, Carlson’s True Value Hardware Store in downtown Wheaton and Buikema’s Ace Hardware Stores in North and South Wheaton. Luminaria sets were assembled by Our Members and by Wheaton North and Wheaton Warrenville South High School Key Clubs. Many hands make light work was our motto this year.

We will be busing assemblilng Bean Soup Meals and Dental Kits at our Winter meetings.
