Dear colleagues,

On May 21, 2016, I will be walking in the Take Steps for Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation Walk.

My husband, John, has been suffering from Crohn’s disease for 18 years. It has been a long battle with many ups and downs. Even after two bowel resection surgeries, medications and dietary restrictions, he still lives in pain every day. Last year John built up an immunity to Remicaid and the drug no longer works for him. Next he tried Humira and his body rejected it and caused him to become very ill. This left him unmedicated for a period time which caused his Crohn’s to flare and become active again. John had his first Enyvio infusion in early 2016. We are keeping positive thoughts and are hopeful that this drug will provide him with some relief. John and many others are running out of drug options! We NEED to find a cure! We cannot do it on our own and need all of your support.

I hope you will consider supporting me by clicking the link below to view my personal page. If you prefer, you can send your contribution directly to me in ADM 270 (checks can be made payable to CCFA). Your support is greatly appreciated!

Here’s the link:

One in every 200 people suffers daily with digestive diseases. CCFA’s mission is to cure Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life for children and adults affected by these diseases. A champion for 1.4 million Americans, CCFA strives to inspire, instill hope, and create a community which empowers patients.

I am asking you to support my fundraising efforts with a donation. Your tax-deductible gift will truly make a difference in the thousands of lives suffering with IBD.

I appreciate your support.

Thank you,
Christine Lasch

If you have either a Cub or Boy Scout uniform and/or gently used hiking boots, that are outgrown and ready for a new home, please consider donating them.

I live in a rural area and many of the families cannot afford to purchase Scout uniforms or hiking boots, which unfortunately discourages some boys from even joining scouting. Thus, I will happily accept donations of any Cub Scout or Boy Scout uniform (or uniform components) and pass them along to scouts, who will make good use of them.

If you have a uniform and/or hiking boots that you would like to donate or have any questions, please feel free to contact me ( or ext. 7567).

Yours in scouting,

Puffin is a 14-month-old, neutered male. He is smart, very chatty in a sweet little trilling voice, playful and very social but shy about human contact. He’s getting more tolerant of human touch and will be more so as he gets used to a new environment and people. If you or someone you know, has a loving home to share with this handsome boy, please contact Sue Oringel at
