A NOTE FROM THE OUTREACH TEAM:

Dear Peace Family,

We’ve worked hard reaching out to folks across Warren and the surrounding community asking for gently worn used and new shoes. As of today (4-21-17), we have collected 25 bags (25 pairs per bag) of our goal of 100 bags. You can help us without spending a cent! It’s quick and easy to help us hit our goal!

It’s quick and easy to help us hit our goal. Your shoe donation is vital. Can we count on you? It’s a Win-Win … we earn funds from collecting shoes as we get paid on a per-pound basis, and the shoes get distributed to other developing nations for income/micro-enterprises and repurposing. It will also diminish what ends up in a landfill! This fundraiser will help our school tremendously toward the further education needs of our students. Please go through your closets and if you haven’t worn them in a year or two, donate them to us!

Could you please let me know if we can count on you to collect 25 pairs of gently worn shoes, and recruit a friend to do the same in the next four weeks? Ask them to collect 25 pairs of gently worn used shoes, kids or adult size. Shoes can be dropped off at Peace (11701 E. 12 Mile, Warren, 12/Hoover) or call 586-751-8010 to arrange a pickup.  There’s a Facebook post on our Peace Facebook page – Please share it to get the word out!

Lutheran High School Northwest invites you to TWO exciting events: Saturday, 5/13, is our FINE ARTS FESTIVAL showcasing the remarkable artistic and musical gifts of our students.  Doors open at 6PM for guests to enjoy an extensive art display.  Concert with band and choirs begins at 7PM.  A free-will offering will be taken.  Don’t miss this memorable annual event!

MARY POPPINS, THE MUSICAL will be presented on Friday and Saturday, 5/19 & 5/20, at 7PM, and on Sunday, 5/21, at 3PM.  This fun-for-the-whole family production includes an extensive supporting cast of grade school children as well!  Adult admission is $10; students and seniors are $8; children under three get in free.  A special “Teatime with Mary Poppins” package is available in conjunction with the 5/20 performance.  Come at 5:30 for a meet and greet with the cast, a craft, specialty seating and more.  This special package is $10 each for kids of all ages!  (We are expecting a large turnout for the abbreviated, preview performance for the schools on Wednesday, 5/17, but, even if your children attend that matinee, the weekend performances offer an opportunity to enjoy the full production as a family.)

Both events will take place at LHNW, 1000 Bagley in Rochester Hills.  Phone: 248-852-6677.
