Operation Ultrasound Update
Thanks to our councils hard work and generosity the goal has been reached for providing an ultrasound machine to the Alpha Pregnancy Center. Application is being made to Supreme for the matching funds and when received the purchase can be made. It is important to note that any excess funds will remain on deposit exclusively for the Conference's use for pro-life activities, the most important work we can do: saving lives.
