July BSSL News

I can’t believe the summer is just flying by. The Bridge Mill Sixes Service League is in full swing with the Barbara Nugent Summer Lunch Program to provide lunches for children in Cherokee County who would receive free lunch during the school year. Thank you so much to co-chairs Susan Gaines, Linda Emore and Judy West for all of the organizing and shopping that you have done in order for the summer lunch program to run. Thank you to all the women, children and grandchildren who have helped us make and pack lunches. We certainly couldn’t have made 1500 lunches so far without your help. And thank you to our 2 anonymous donors who year after year continue to support this very worthy project.




This month, in addition to making lunches, we will be assembling Hygiene bags for the tenth annual Give A Kid A Chance. It’s dedication from our co-chairs Lynn Weimer and Caroline Zipkin that will make for another successful BSSL project. Please join us on July 16th at the Terrace as we pack the bags from 3-5PM. Our members will be distributing bags at the First Baptist Church in Canton on July 18th beginning at 9AM. If you are interested in helping to assemble the bags please contact Ruth Clark.

The next scheduled meeting of the BSSL will be on August 20th at the Terrace at 7PM.
