Jordan James Benefit
Jordan James, son of Deb and Jim James (Deb is the Ohio District Administrative Assistant in our Napoleon office, who works with Eileen Fitzenreiter) has been diagnosed with a rare form of luekemia and needs a bone marrow transplant.  A spaghetti dinner will be held on Sunday, October 6, 2013 at St. Paul Lutheran Church, 1075 Glenwood Avenue, Napoleon, Ohio, to raise funds to defray the costs associated with a donor drive to help find a match for Jordan.  If you are unable to attend the benefit dinner but wish to make a donation, see FLYER for details.  Please keep Jordan and the James family in your prayers.
