A new year begins . . . with a lighted candles officer installation ceremony conducted by Janice Kane. A huge thank you to our outgoing officers for their dedication and leadership in 2011. Welcome to our incoming 2012 board! We believe each of you has the courage to light the fire and keep the SOS flame glowing!
December is a special time of the year when we remember the women and children at SafeHaven through donations for Santa’s Sack and other shelter needs. The collection table at Bonnell’s Fine Texas Cuisine in Fort Worth was overflowing with pj’s and other gifts for SafeHaven clients. Thanks to everyone who contributed.
