To the editor:

The Midday Connection wishes to thank all donors, contributors and participants, too numerous to list here, for their generosity during our Nov. 8, 2007, andquot;Men's Night Outandquot; and auction at the Community Connection Senior Center.

Stan Wellman did a wonderful job as our auctioneer for the oral auction. Our speakers, Ron and Connie Knapp from Grants Pass, enthralled the audience. Without the generosity of everyone in communities like ours, this night would not have been such a success in providing Stonecroft Ministries with the funds to distribute Christmas surprises to all of the missionaries throughout the country including Village Missions.

Our group is just one of several hundred groups nationwide who participate to aid rural missionaries in churches in outlying, small rural communities who would not have a minister for a local church. Businesses and individuals opened their hearts and purses to this annual, worthwhile cause. The Planning Team of Midday Connection is deeply grateful for your generosity.
