August 2013 Meeting, Show & Tell

Special Guests

On Saturday, August 17, 2013, we welcomed Janie and Mary Beth from the Christ Child Society. We learned all about the history of the society as well as what this group of ladies does for children in need in Austin area. The Linus Connection contributes blankets to the Christ Child Society each month to help fill the need of children in our area.
