Community thanked for Congo trip support

I'd like to give a hearty thank you to all the individuals and organizations that have contributed so our team can help the people of the Democratic Republic of Congo. My mom has done a good job at acknowledging businesses and people while I was away at college, but I would like to tell you again, thank you so much for caring.

There are also some new donors who deserve recognition: Lois Nicholas, the Mason's Unity Lodge of North Bend, Ronald Woods, Ed Opstad, Jonathan Seaton, Pearl Dennis-Kromm and everyone who supported our efforts by buying at our table during the Mouse Bazaar.

This is such an amazing and caring community and I am very appreciative of all the contributors. I will be part of a 10-person team going this summer to help the Congolese as they struggle to survive after a civil war, as well as AIDS. The people we help will also be very grateful for all your wonderful support. Thank you.
