Love INC Updates ~ Next week, June 17-19, is “Western Days” at the Allegan County Fair Grounds.  Love INC is one of many great organizations who will have an information table near the grandstand area.  We are looking for a few volunteers to sit at our table, be willing to hand out flyers, let folks know a bit about the ministry of Love INC and how we serve folks in Allegan County.  It will be a great opportunity to get the word out on how we support people in our community and about our partnership with churches in our communities.  Time slots that we are looking to have someone help out are:  Friday, 7-9 pm; Saturday, noon – 7 pm; Sunday for a time after the morning worship service, 11:30 am.  If you can help out a couple of hours contact Barry at 269.751.2533.

The Love INC Pullman office received the award “making Pullman a better place to live, providing a source of inspiration and hope for the Pullman Community and Allegan County”.  This award was presented to the staff by Mary Whiteford.  Congratulations to the Love INC Pullman staff.
