I have always felt that summer is over when schools are back in session, although technically, I understand there is another couple of weeks before Autumn is fully upon us. And there are tons of activities for all chapters once Autumn arrives!
I know many, if not most, of you have already participated in your county fairs. I hope you were able to take advantage of our brand-new Chapter County Fair Digital Packet which can be found here.
Have you sent an “end of summer” newsletter out to your members? Now is as good a time as any! It is quick, your members will appreciate it, and you are keeping your community informed and in the loop of what is going on with your chapter.
When was the last time you met with the pastors of your local pro-life churches? We have a nice digital packet to help you get started that you can take, walk the pastor through what needs to be done, and a great reason to check back in and keep in touch. Pro-Life Churches are our friends, and we need to keep in touch with them, offer our help and assistance to help make their jobs easier where our issue is concerned. Find the materials you need here.
Anytime is a great time to keep the petitions circulating and gathering names and we have one ready to go for you, and we are working on another one. Click here to see the ready to go petition and we will notify you as soon as we have the new one complete.
Is it time to raise some funds for fall activities? Click here for our latest resource in chapter fund-raising.
Bottom line? Chapters play an enormously important role in the right to life movement and are one of the most important entities we are blessed to have, so we want to help you in every way we can. Make sure you are on the email list for National Right to Life so that you can receive emails and stay informed. Here is the link, scroll down to the bottom of the page and you can subscribe. We don’t fill up your inbox, but when something occurs that you need to be aware of, we make sure you are.
Thank you for being our voice in your local community. Keep up your amazing work! God’s blessings on all your efforts!
