First Lutheran Church, 1551 S 70th, Lincoln, NE
Join us for our regular monthly business meeting at 7:00 PM, followed by a presentation to inspire you to begin your "Spring Cleaning".
How to Simplify Your "Stuff" and Honor Your Memories
Where do you begin and what do you do with those “things” that have sentimental value to you but possibly not the next generation?  Such items are a way we hang onto the past… people that have grown up or are gone, or chapters of our life that have closed. Join us for a presentation by Melinda Stone on how to downsize and declutter while still honoring the memories that are associated with all of that “stuff”. What do you do with those items that mean so much?
We hope to see you all on Thursday evening.
