Garage Sale - A Big THANK YOU For Your Support!
A BIG thank you to everyone who last month contributed goods and time to our 2014 Garage Sale. The event was an even greater success than last year and all money raised went towards the International Temples Project (ITP), a fund dedicated to the development of world peace. How wonderful! We could not have accomplished this without your kind generosity.
