A Thank You from LDN Spiritual Group

Dear All Souls Church,

We would like to thank you for your $100 donation to our group. Your donation went toward our Pow-wow this past April. It helped pay for the delicious food we got to enjoy with all our supporters. We had a lot of fun. In the future, if anyone at the All Souls Church would like to attend one of our Pow-wows, please feel free to ask. We like to have people come eat and dance at our events.

As a token of our gratitude, we send you this thank you card signed by all our LDN council members. We hope this letter and card finds the church members in good spirits.
