Many Show Support At Dedication Service

Phoenix Branch had their dedication service with more than 75 people attending. OGT’s Donor Advisor Rev. Ralph Schmidt officiated the service and Phoenix Assistant Branch Manager Dan Becker (in red shirt) read the Bible verses for the day. Former Arizona’s Governor Janice Brewer was to speak but had a death in her family and could not attend. She mailed a letter that was presented during the service. The quilts were made by various quilting groups in Arizona and Nevada and will be boxed and donated where needed. They also had some volunteers from the Norfolk Warehouse attend since they live in Phoenix for the winter months; Jane Ternus and Andy Pietzmeier posed long side Jeannie Becker, Phoenix treasurer and Rev. Ralph Schmidt. Congratulations to the Phoenix Branch volunteers for your hard work with bringing OGT to Phoenix!
