We were blessed to have a beautiful day for packing 60 boxes to ship to overseas troops and USOs. We were so fortunate to have Central's Girl Scout Troop 10490 helping us out along with their moms and grandmothers as well as volunteers from St. Isidore Catholic Church.

We held our annual Gold Star Mother’s Day Tea on Sunday, September 24th at The English Tea Room in Covington. It was an honor and a privilege to host these mothers. No words can convey the respect and gratitude we have for them and their children. Seven Gold Star Mothers were able to attend.
G7 sold homemade desserts to help out AND we sold our first G7 Cookbook. Thank YOU Paul!!

Each year, since 1936, on the last Sunday of September our United States President calls on all Americans to display our nation's flag and hold appropriate meetings to publicly express their love, sorrow, and reverence towards Gold Star Mothers and their families.
As fellow Americans we lend our strength to these families who have given so much for our country.
Today, we remember all of you, our Gold Star Mothers.
We honor your courage and your perseverance and the memory of your children
