COLLIER COUNTY PUBLIC NEWS UPDATE

We’re back! Lytra’s Dream lives on through you, our patriotic volunteers, who want to share your love of America with the students we’ll meet and enjoy this next school year.

I have stepped up to Chair this Committee and have some big shoes to fill after losing our dear sister, Lytra to cancer in June. Doreen Miner will stay on as Coordinator. She does the scheduling of readers and wears other hats too. By the way, can you believe we read to over 1800 students last school year?

Here’s an overview of Patriot Reader reads for the 2023 – 2024 school year:

  • Hats off to school board member and Patriot Reader, Tim Moshier. Thanks to him we were invited back to the elementary schools in Collier County Public Schools, and have a start date sometime in September. We will cover grades K-3 this fall in all the schools where we’ve been invited including First Baptist Academy, Grace Place and the Immokalee Foundation.
  • What we're reading: More of the two approved books for the read-alouds have been ordered thanks to those who donated Amazon gift cards and cash at our recent Sip on the Right Side at Seasons 52. Please consider a donation if you haven’t already done so. We are still in need of more books. You can purchase them from Amazon (see link below) or Barnes & Noble. Scroll down for our our updated Patriot Reader brochure.

PLEASE VOLUNTEER:

Current Volunteers: CCPS has a volunteer sign-up requirement found on their website. They need a new one filled out every school year.Complete an on-line application by visiting VOLUNTEER SIGN UP.

When you receive a confirmation email from the Department of Human Resources, notify the front office directly by calling 239-377-8800 to schedule a volunteer orientation and photo badge appointment with the school’s volunteer coordinator.

Thank you to all the Patriotic WRC members who helped us reach 1800 students our first year!

Patriotically Yours,

FAITH ENGAGEMENT COMMITTEE NEWS

FAITH ENGAGEMENT COMMITTEE

A message from our Faith Engagement Committee

WRC Faith Column Hope #8

As we search for answers and accept the awesome responsibility to preserve our American values, it is necessary for us to be reminded of our strong American foundation as stated in the Preamble of our Constitution: "WE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

Our founders were at the nascent stages of a brand-new experiment. They ventured to create a "republic" and they were not even sure as to what that meant! However, They were faithful believers in the God of Love who sent his only begotten Son to open the doors of eternal life for mankind with an inheritance in His Kingdom. They were men of courage and conviction, servants of the people, shepherds of the flock. The longing in our American hearts can be satisfied with the truth found in Scripture that shows us the way and classic literature that encourages us to hope.

Joshua 1:7 "Above all be firm and steadfast, taking care to observe the entire law...do not swerve from it either to the right or to the left, that you may succeed wherever you go."

Seamus Heaney:  "History says don't hope on this side of the grave.  But once in a lifetime, the longed-for tidal wave of justice can rise up, and hope and history rhyme."

Please pray on this National Day of Prayer that our country's leaders will embrace our founding principles that were so divinely inspired, and in doing so, foster hope for us all.  God bless our great country on the National Day of Prayer and every day.

LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE

Call To Action:

SUPPORT A 'NO' VOTE ON THE SENATE IMMIGRATION BILL

Dear WRC Members and friends,

Please copy and paste the message below and send to our senators urging them to vote "NO" on the Senate immigration bill. The bill is set to be voted on Wednesday, February 7th so please do this immediately! Thank you!

We have heard on Fox News that you plan to vote no on the Senate immigration bill that Senator Schumer has scheduled for a vote on Wednesday, February 7th. We strongly support and encourage your "NO" vote. We understand the bill includes several highly objectionable elements including:

  • provides more funding to NGOs for payments to migrants that will continue to incentivize and subsidize illegal immigration;
  • does nothing to stop unaccompanied minors or deal with illegal got-aways;
  • does nothing to stop Mexico from giving migrants from other countries transit through Mexico;
  • effectively allows 5,000 illegal immigrants daily to enter via the current ineffective and noncompliant "register" and release process;
  • includes a sunset in three years which would leave us with the current law;
  • gives the Biden Administration far too much flexibility related to enforcement, including emergency authority to suspend some provisions of the law, and once it becomes law it ties the hands of the next presidents.

We believe the current immigration law gives President Biden all the tools and authority needed to stop illegal immigration. We strongly encourage you to vote "NO" on the Senate bill. In addition, we need you and other Republican Senators to explain to the American public why this bill is so unacceptable. You cannot let the Biden administration use this against Republicans.

Members and friends, THANK YOU for your immediate attention to this matter.

Contact U.S. Senator Rick Scott: https://www.rickscott.senate.gov/contact/share-your-opinion

Contact U.S. Senator Marco Rubio: https://www.rubio.senate.gov/contact/
