Meeting typically is started with a word of prayer followed by a pot luck supper. After enjoying the food we have a brief business meeting with reading of minutes and treasurer's report. Then we have a time of sharing, crying and laughing, lots of laughing and crying! We ask that those that can afford to bring items for care packages and after the meeting we build them for immediate send off to troops from our county along with some referred names of those not so fortunate. In December we sent out 75 boxes to members of all branches with goodies, gifts, and cards made by local school children. We are here for each other, and to make sure that our heroes know someone is always thinking about them. FAITH stands for Family and Individuals Thanking our Heroes!
