St. Baldrick’s Shave the Way
Through the generous donations from AOH/LAOH mem-
bers, family and friends, I was able to raise $ 1,200.00 for
St. Baldrick's Cancer Research for Children. This was
my second year shaving my head. I would like to thank
brother, Raymond Colman ,who donated his time and
talent and entertained for us. Thank you to all who partici-
pated in my head shaving especially my barbers: Tim
Murphy, Gary Thomas and Jay Hull. A great day was
had by all who stopped by the club that day.

Saint Anne’s Convent Help Needed
Father Edward Bradley is the newly named pastor of St. Anne’s Parish and has asked for help
securing the convent:
I am looking to secure the convent for our nuns (Sisters of Saint Joseph) in several ways:
1. Change the windows into the basement to the thick block glass windows (13 all together). I am
not too sure what it will take to get the old windows out and the new ones in.
2. 2. Need to replace two outer doors of the convent with solid wooden doors from the school.
3. 3. Need to take down three small trees in the back of the convent.
4. 4. Need to take down a trailer that is attached to the convent (still thinking about this one)
Even though we are not budgeted for it this year, I think I can get the bucks to purchase the materi-
als. It is being looked into. What I need to know is this: Do you know of anyone who is proficient in
these types of projects who has the tools and is willing to donate their time and talent?
Respectfully in our Lord, Rev. Edward Brady
Please reach out to Jim Lockhart (RIC) - cell# 267-226-8843 from
AOH 87 who is coordinating the volunteers for St. Anne's.
