The Mattapoisett Woman’s Club will hold its monthly luncheon on Thursday, January 16 at 12:00 noon at Reynard Hall in the Mattapoisett Congregational Church, 27 Church St., Mattapoisett.
Ross Edminster, a member of the Salvation Army Relief Team, will share his experiences of offering support following the deadly tornado that struck Oklahoma, killing 24 and injuring 377 people. As an emergency responder, Ross gave hope and support from cold drinks and snacks to Beanie Babies for the children, but most importantly, he offered emotional and spiritual support. As a parent, retired middle school principal of 3 schools, and grandparent, Mr. Edminster was confronted by the desperate destruction that affected so many families.
“This was a wonderful testimony to the faith of people of Oklahoma,” reflected Edminster.
