Congratulations to the TURTLES, the winners of the 2015 Vacation Bible School Penny War Mission Project Competition! This group of 4th & 5th graders brought in over 5,500 pennies and hundreds of other coins to become the Penny War Champions and winners of the Perpetual Penny War Trophy.
All the VBS campers are to be congratulated for the more than 11,000 coins they brought in during the week. It was a close competition until the Turtles were able to pull away on Friday by bringing in $70 in coins on that day alone!
Penny Wars started as a fun way to support various mission and outreach projects during VBS and this year raised $346 for the Amanda Lisitano family. Amanda is a Haddam resident and mother of four who was diagnosed with stage four cancer last year.
