Democratic Friends,

One of our club members, Liz Wilson, is working with several people to help a woman, recently diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer, to be able to take her children to Disney World this holiday. Several costs of the trip have been covered, but they are still raising money for the transportation.

There will be a pancake breakfast this Saturday, November 15, 9 am – 1 pm, at Immanuel United Church of Christ, 1 Hovey Street, Oxford (one block behind the Oxford Starbucks). The cost is $5. There will be a raffle/auction of various items at the breakfast. Liz intives all club members to attend!

In addition, if anyone would like to make a donation (either cash or items for the auction/raffle), please contact Liz Wilson at 248-628-8918.

There are two articles in the Oxford Leader about this effort.
