Many thanks to all the Mother's Day Rose Drive coordinators and anyone who supported them. Early returns indicate that this is a very good year! If your Church (Catholic or not) does not do a Rose Drive, please consider helping us out with this important fundraiser. You can do a RoseDrive any time. Memorial Day and Father's Day are good. Another possibility is red roses for Pentecost (June 12th). Looking ahead, any Sunday in October for Respect Life Month works. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-242-4199 ext. 230.

Education is a key to our protection of human life. During the past few months, MCFL has trained several new speakers who are eager to come to your church or social group to defend human life. Please contact any of these groups in your area to encourage them to have a pro-life speaker. Please call our office at 617-242-4199 X 230 to schedule a speaker. Someone's life depends on it!

Sincere Thanks to all the pro-lifers in the Sixth Worcester State Representative District who worked so hard to elect Peter Durant. Peter won the election with a 56 vote margin. Congratulations, also, to the members of the MCFL State Political Action Committee. The PAC called and mailed to close to 1000 people twice as well as a couple of emails and sent out almost 8,000 Dear Friend cards for our people to send to their friends.
The State PAC also worked for Jim Dixon, a great pro-lifer. Unfortunately, Jim was defeated.
