South Dakota News
From Jeannette Stensland:
We are thankful for all the help we are getting to serve God’s people!
South Dakota Regional Division recently was the recipient of a Thrivent award of $400 in supplemental funds for a benefit Wisconsin-style fish dinner held in September at Emanuel Lutheran Church, Milbank. In October a sausage dinner was held at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church in Watertown and money received there will also be supplemented by Thrivent.
Above: Dianne Hammond, representing Thrivent Chapter 30581, presents the check to Vernon Koopman, treasurer for the South Dakota Division of Orphan Grain Train Inc. Also shown are several of the volunteers who assist at the new packing site in Milbank.
Presentations about Orphan Grain Train were made to the South Dakota District Pastoral Conference in Spearfish as well as the LWML Milbank and Yankton zones’ fall rallies. The Milbank zone rally, held at Wilmot, included an ingathering of materials and funds greatly needed for shipping them.
Several quilts have been donated by St. John’s Lutheran Church in Wolsey and Mt. Calvary in Huron.
Thank you all once again!
