King George — Palm Sunday, April 13 was an uplifting day for the nearly 100 people who converged at the King George Citizens Center for a festive afternoon of inspiration, good food and recognition of the contributions by Helen Lehr of Descending Dove Christian Center to the growth of Love Thy Neighbor (LTN.)
A Children’s Corner with crafts including Easter basket making was provided by Amanda Miller, and her Brownie Troop #648. The inspirational music was provided by Gordon and Barbara McDonald, with beautifully decorated tables featuring floral arrangements by Jeanne Marie Rehanek, of “Consider the Lilies” floral design.
Arlene Jacovelli, 24/7 TLC President, spoke about the medical services that are available at the Community Care Clinic, and shared encouraging stories from her own life about overcoming the varied medical disasters that had previously derailed her and her family’s life, stating that “you can’t fall off the floor” and a George Elliot quote that “It is never too late to be what you might have been.”
24/7 TLC, the not for profit parent of the Community Care Clinic is providing Love Thy Neighbor with professional office space and guidance to growing the resources currently offered to individuals and families who have recently found themselves in dire straits or who have been struggling with chronic poverty. Individuals are qualified for services by a genuine desire to find a bridge out of their situation, but who have become very discouraged or downtrodden.
