Adrian Dominicans Remind Fair Attendees
to Support Katrina Victims

ADRIAN, MI-- July 30, 2007 -- “Please don’t forget us!” was the plea voiced to the Adrian Dominican Sisters from the residents of New Orleans. The 12 sisters who returned from New Orleans this spring, after surveying the needs of the New Orleans community, gave Mary Soher, OP, Dusty Farnan, OP,  and John MacNaughton,  the theme for congregation’s 2007 Lenawee County Fair booth; continue to mobilize volunteers. 

“As other issues enter the national scene, and the media slows the coverage of the devastation from Katrina, help needs to continue”, stated Mary. That is why pictures of the ravaged New Orleans landscape are hanging on the walls of the sister’s county fair booth. “The poor and scattered are depending on us,” concluded Soher. 

People stopping by the booth were given several ways to help.  First, they choose from 4 different postcards and wrote notes of encouragement dropping them into a miniature US postbox.  The cards will be sent to three catholic churches in New Orleans for distribution to parishioners. Also, bookmarks were handed out that bear the website addresses for more ways to help.

The Lenawee county fair in Adrian, Michigan is the longest running fair in the state and typically 62,000 people attend. It was held July 22-28.
