Patrick (Pat) Moore is the new President of CLS Guild. Pat and his wife Linda live in Fort Saskatchewan and attend All Saints Lutheran Church. Pat has been active with the Guild since its inception, including past presidency. The Moores are known for their hospitality and especially for providing their backyard barbecue for the Guild executive social in late summer. Other executive members include past president Marilyn Jansen; co-secretaries, Lillian Bulman and Ellen Raaflaub; and treasurer, Hilda Schoepp.
As it has done for years, the Guild continues to provide direct support to the students and their families by raising funds for them, collecting and distributing food, and providing prayer and social support to them. A special thank you goes out again to Guild supporters and especially the Guild representatives from the churches. People from across Canada have responded generously to the membership drive. Many members add donations to the regular $10 membership fee, making a substantial increase to the annual revenues of the Guild. They also bring or send in special packages for the students including food stuffs for the student food hamper.
