 Program :     Sandy introduced Linda Coglin,  chief guru of Loving Arms - her 4th visit to us.
                    Linda started Loving Arms in 2007 and now has 18 teams go to Guatemala each year
                         They provide water filters, schools, farming methods, greenhouses, literacy, clothes, etc.  for impoverished peoples in the mountains of Guatemala.  Guatemala has 14 million people, 80 % of which are indigineous, and 50 %
                         of those are under 14.    The water filters which we help provide with our donations cost around $ 240.00 but are very effective - each home gets one as well as the school.  Linda has asked for more help  but also for
                         volunteers to go on the teams  to help instruct the peoples in our areas of expertise.  
                        Linda thanked us for her ongoing support.
                    Chas thanked our speaker for her presentation and her dedicated work
                     Sandy presented Linda with our donation.
