Orphan Grain Train (OGT) Update OGT will be sending another cargo container to Liberia in September. This shipment will include 350 feminine hygiene kits with washable, reusable items to allow girls and young women to attend school during their menstrual cycles. Thanks to Annapolis Lutheran volunteers who helped cut out fabrics for the project at the Friday, July 16 service project. Your work is going to Liberia soon! Funds for Flannel Funds for FLANNEL! Since OGT has sent so many feminine hygiene kits overseas, some donated supplies have run out! OGT is completely out of soft flannel fabric necessary for these kits, one yard of 45” wide flannel per kit. If you can contribute clean, gently used flannel fabric or new flannel fabric (any color, any pattern), bag and label it “Flannel for OGT” and funds it in the Quilters’ Room (left of the foyer coffee set up in the Fellowship Hall). To provide funds, write “Flannel for OGT” on your check’s memo line, placing it in the offering plate on Sundays. All donations are greatly appreciated for OGT to continue this ministry. Questions? Contact Judy White, 410-757-1738, jafwhite@ comcast.net. Church Beautification Day! Please join us on Saturday, August 28th, at 8:30 AM.
