Response and Thank you from Kathy and Fran Giordan, Father Andrew’s friends who visited from New York for two weeks this past month.

Please find attached a note of appreciation and thanks received They have gifted St. Isidore parish with a new Ordinary Time (green colored) vestment (on order).  So we decided to put together a “farewell” basket from St. Isidore’s as a way to thank them for their gift and our sign of our friendship.  We had two bottles of wine from the Pederson-Meyer winery, multiple loaves of bread and jams from Elaine & Dave Shaw, a prayer cross made by John Roberts (included the note card for the prayer cross that you had made), a St. Isidore’s Cookbook, and a muslin fabric tea towel with an outline of the state of Iowa in black and a pin of a red heart that was positioned in the general area of Springville/Mt.Vernon inside the outline of Iowa (it was pretty cute)

The Thank you card is below:
