I recently saw a production of “Miss Saigon”, a Broadway revival that caused me to reflect on how we, as Americans, should treat the brave men and women who have served our country. Below for your review are recommendations for services Philoptochos can offer veterans, but first let’s think about how each of us can individually show our gratitude:
*For their bravery and dedication, we should thank them sincerely.
*For their selfless service, we should treat them with boundless respect.
*For protecting our way of life and the values we hold dear, we should honor them.
And for those who made the ultimate sacrifice and gave their lives for their country-for our country-we must remember them always and forever.
May their memory be eternal!

Here, in Casper, WY, our Sunday School students organized a Silent Auction on October 29,2016 at our church ,in order to raise money for participating in the local Giving Tree project.
With the money they raised we will take them shopping for children clothing that will be donated later on at the local Red Cross.

“Then the King will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink? And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee? And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.'”(Matthew 25:34-40 RSV)
