We are in need of the following:
Hooded bath towels
Pump baby shampoo
If you are interested, these go into our layettes that we gift to moms who have earned enough points by taking classes. Thank you!
Here's an expectant client who gave us permission to share her receiving a beautiful quilt, complete layette and a zippered purse full of personal care goodies. She was thrilled, to say the least!
Thank you to all our wonderful donors!

So Happy Valentine's Day!

Kudos to Mary Beerworth, Maggie Kerrin, and Annisa Lamberton for organizing the protest against Prop. 5 at the Statehouse today! WCAX interviewed Annisa and those in attendance held signs requesting that the lawmakers respect life and vote NO.
We saw Vicki Strong and others who were happy for the show of support and God bless them all. And please pray for the cold hearts in the Legislature, that God turns them around!
There were maybe 45-50 people in attendance and we pray that the legislators noticed. The Proposal did pass, 107-41. But take heart that while this horrendous Proposal 5 passed, 41 brave souls voted against it and FOR life. Please pray for them, and for our beloved state as well.
I'm copying an email sent out by VT Right to Life this morning. Folks, the vote on Proposal 5 is TOMORROW. Please attend if you can, carpooling is best!
Big Turnout Needed for Tomorrow
It is vitally important for pro-lifers
to be seen and heard tomorrow.
If you can possibly attend one or both of these events,
we urge you to come.
We are gathering at the side entrance (left hand side as you face the State House) at 9:00AM to encourage those lawmakers who understand the hidden dangers of Proposal 5 and to support them as they enter the building and intend to courageously speak out during House Floor debate.
There will be limited seating inside the State House up in the balcony for those who want to stay and listen to the proceedings. Link to the street parking situation here.
Vermont Right to Life supporters will be joining with other organizations who oppose Proposal 5 to provide an opportunity for those Vermonters to give the two minute testimony they would have given at the public hearing on Proposal 5, but were unable to sign up.
Signs will be provided that indicate opposition to Proposal 5.
The traditional shuttle ride to the Capital has been eliminated, however we have booked one trip with MyRide by GMT. A shuttle bus will be available at the Vermont Department of Labor (5 Green Mountain Drive, Montpelier). Park your car and look for the bus sign. Be prepared to get on the bus at 11:45AM. The return trip back to your vehicle will be at 1:15PM.
Please carpool if you can.

Please keep the center in prayer as the state legislature considers two bills that appear aimed at harming us and the other PRCs in VT.
Rep.Mr. George Till has introduced H.634 "An act relating to pregnancy center fraud". The wording of this egregious piece of legislation is vague, which would leave us open to interpretations of wording such as "ought to know it is untrue", "clearly designed to mislead the public" and "by the exercise of reasonable care". Please read the bill as introduced and contact your representatives to voice your opposition. https://legislature.vermont.gov/bill/status/2022/H.634
Also, just as we are getting ready to welcome the Mobil Clinic in March, Reps. Ann Pugh and Barbara Rachaelson have introduced an "act relating to prohibiting mobile billboards".
Here's some of the wording of the bill as introduced:
"A “sign” is any structure, display, device, or representation, either
temporary or permanent, portable, mobile, vehicle-mounted, or ground mounted, that is designed or used to advertise or call attention to any thing, person, business, activity, or place and is visible from any highway or other right-of-way."
We need and appreciate your strong opposition to these bills!
This past year ended with us saying a fond farewell to Barb Kohler, who has volunteered countless hours with this organization almost from it's inception! Barb has been on the Board, as well as acting as our bookeeper/accountant. If you consider what it costs to have someone do your payroll and taxes each year, you begin to get an idea of how much money she has saved us! Then, of course, add in compiling reports for the Board meetings, paying the bills and sitting on the phone with the IRS for hours on end... We can't adequately thank her enough. Barb, we'll miss you and pray that your toes are in the sand all the cold months and that we see your smiling face once in awhile during the warmer ones! Thank you so very much!
When Barb was thinking about retiring, she even found us a wonderful interim replacement. Barb is pictured in the foreground and behind her is Denise Marcelle. Barb and Denise used to work together, so Denise has been able to jump right in. We are very grateful for her willingness to help us out! (Shhh, don't tell her we're praying we get to keep her.)
Thank you, Denise - We really appreciate having your help!
Just letting you know that we will be closing early tomorrow (Thursday, Dec. 23) at Noon and will reopen on Monday, Jan. 3.
Thank you all for your support and encouragement- especially through this year. We know it's been a challenging one for almost everyone. We truly appreciate each and every one of you!
We wish you all a very Merry and Meaningful Christmas!
