Janaury 25th - Our club has lost a good friend. Our thoughts and prayers goes to the Christa Maddux family from the Upper Midwest A-C Club. She was such a great lady. She always had a smile on her face.
◦"There's magic in a Mother's touch, and sunshine in her smile. There's love in everything she does to make our lives worthwhile. We can find both hope and courage just by looking in her eyes. Her laughter is a source of joy, her works are warm and wise. There is a kindness and compassion to be found in her embrace and we see the light of heaven shining from a Mother's face."
