The Carolyn L. Farrell Foundation was the recipient of an outreach offering from the Parish of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church presented by church member Naomi Opdycke to Dr. Charlie Farrell. We are grateful to the members of the church for their generosity. Special recognition goes to Naomi for being the liaison between the church and the Farrell Foundation. In addition, Janis & John Carlson hosted a table with info about the Farrell Foundation & also artwork by their daughter, Jennifer, who is a participant in the Farrell Foundation programs.
