FALL DINNER:  Our dinner was a huge success.  We had prepared for 600 or so meals. Wish we could have planned for many more as we were sold out by 12:15 and had to turn away so many cars waiting in line up to main street.  Evidently the drive thru pick up is what people like so will go again next year with maybe planning for a 1000 meals. Thanks so much to all who came and bought meals.  Donations for the turkeys and pies to date $2,300.00 plus 55 ladies have paid their guild dues.   INCOME meals 6449.00; donations 2350.00  Total Income $8799.00 – EXPENSES $4261.75 for a profit of $4537.25.  At our guild meeting the ladies decided to tithe part of our profit to the following;  $100.00 to Epiphany Parish Baby Pantry,  $50.00 to the following; Women’s Shelter, Hawkeye Harvest Food Bank, West Fork Food Pantry, Catholic Charities, Crisis Intervention, Presentations, Dominican Sisters, R-S EMT’s, Rockwell Fire Department, Caring Pregnancy and Francis Lauer Youth.  If anyone knows of an organization that could use our help let the office know h.cahalan@sacredheartrockwell.org

We have selected Northern Lights Men’s Shelter as our recipient again this year for Christmas tree giving.  With the pandemic twist we are asking for a monetary donation this year instead of items.  We will give them the money or if they want we could do the shopping for them.  Please mail checks to Sacred Heart PO Box 30, Rockwell, Ia 50469 if you wish to make a donation
