Our featured speaker is Barb Roose, a local author and motivational speaker who will talk about her own experiences with letting go of the less-important details of the holiday season and focusing on the wondrous parts. (Learn more about Barb at www.barbroose.com.)
To make the event even more efficient, we will have plenty of silent auction items and local vendors so attendees can also wrap up their Christmas shopping if they wish.
Doors will open at 10:30 a.m. for those wishing to shop and bid on the silent auction items. If you have a limited lunch hour, plan to arrive at noon for a delicious lunch, a great speaker, and the chance to support Heartbeat. We'll have you back on your way to work by 1 p.m.
Attendees are encouraged to help support our mission by bringing a new or gently used baby item or a pack of diapers for a family in need.

Our annual Baby Bottle program is a great opportunity for your church or school to perform service for the community and to help local mothers and babies. Baby bottles are distributed at your church (or other location) and members are asked to take them home, fill them with loose change (or bills or checks) and return it after a two-week period. If your church/organization is interested in participating, please contact Kali Wulff, Development Director, at 419.241.9131 or email@example.com. Click here to see the many churches and schools that already participate.
