Guest Speaker 
Jackson Coombs from Interact to introduce our guest speaker, Andrew Valdez.   Andrew shared an interesting presentation about Interact, which meets every other Sunday evening (no fees) at 7 p.m. in the St. Luke’s basement.  Begins Sunday Sept. 15th – please help spread the word that new members are invited to come out (for ages 12-18).   Their slogan is “Be the Change”.   Andrew described the leadership opportunities and fun activities, community service and fundraising that their club does in St. Thomas. They have raised over $25,000 for Children’s Hospital in London, as well as supporting many different international projects through the KIVA microfunds project. Scott thanked Andrew for his excellent presentation.
