In November when the Caldwell Volunteers went to Caswell, they found out that one of the two dryers in the laundry had died and could not be fixed. Lillian Turnmire, a long time volunteer who has always worked in the laundry, challenged the team to raise the money to purchase a new dryer for the Assembly. A new dryer, installed, would cost $6,323.04. This is a much-needed piece of equipment and the team agreed to encourage their churches to help raise the money to purchase one. Would you please present this need to your church and see if they would contribute to this on behalf of the Caldwell Volunteers? Checks can be made to the Caldwell Baptist Association, PO Box 1555, Lenoir, NC 28645 and marked Caswell Dryer. Any money over the amount needed will be given to the Assembly to use as needed. When they get the dryer, we are going to name it “Lillian.” Please have all contributions in by January 31, 2022. Thank you for loving on our assembly.
