March 13th - Bobbie Franklin, Mosiac.  Bobbie explained that they house, educate and employ mentally challenged individuals.  Their document destruction center is officially in Carrollton, but really just on the other side of Midway Road at the airport tunnel.  They have good rates and take personal items as well as pick up larger volumes of documents to be destroyed. 






















We are still collecting prescription bottles.  Be sure to remove the labels and rinse.  Bring to each meeting.  Stan is collecting for use in Malawi, a small landlocked country in southern Africa.  Don't forget, your animals may have prescriptions too!
