One Man’s Scrap, Another Man’s Gold (March 2015)
As we mentioned in "Combermere Diary," because of the flu epidemic we have had to cut back our work to minimum. So this month, please allow us to express our needs simply and in brief.

Cleaning Department:

"Thanks for the scubbies. We can still use more."

Sturdy baby baths for washing dishes and vegetables


Liquid white-out, ¾ inch binder clips

Gift Shop:

"Thank you so much for the laminating machine. It works beautifully. And thank you for the beautiful jewelry donation."

Small digital alarm clocks (travel clocks), men’s pipes, small price labels (We use them constantly.)

HELP Dept. (Heating, Electricity, Lighting and Plumbing):

AA, AAA and 9-volt batteries

Women Gardeners:

Women’s rubber boots for gardening, blood meal


Cough suppressant, Extra-Strength Tylenol, cold and flu meds, Gravol, magnesium supplements, calcium supplements

Handicraft Center:

"Thank you for the black and colored markers."

Women Gardeners:

What can we say as we end this, our list of needs, except thank you, thank you, thank you, for your continued generosity. Know that without it, we could not live our way of life. Know, too, that you are in our prayers; please pray for us, too.

In Our Lady of Combermere,
Susanne Stubbs and Mark Schlingerman (March 2015)
