Golf Outing Thrives in Beautiful Weather
On Saturday, May 13, Right to Life of Shelby County hosted its 7th Annual Scramble-4-Life golf outing at Shelby Oaks Golf Club. Twenty-three teams participated in the event that was sponsored by 28 area businesses and families. In addition to participants receiving a commemorative tumbler, door prizes and $700 in prize money were awarded.
The Scramble-4-Life raised over $6,000 for RTL this year, bringing the cumulative total raised from this event (since 2011) to $36,200!
Many thanks to Julia Monnin and the whole Tim and Darla Dietz family for their work in organizing the outing; and to all of our generous sponsors and prize donors.

Thrift Shop and Office Re-Open Tuesday, May 9
Update 5/8: The RTL thrift shop will resume its normal operating hours (Tuesday–Friday, 10am–4pm; and Saturday, 9–noon) beginning Tuesday,, May 9. There is still some work to be done in the office and storage area of the building, but the store area is ready for business.
Thanks again to all who helped with clean-up and laundry. If you've still got clothing or other items, please hang onto them for a little while longer while we finish preparing the storage area. We'll let you know when we're ready for material to be returned. Thank you for your patience!
Update 4/28: The restoration work is nearing completion. We will still be cleaning and reorganizing in the storage area for a while, but we hope to reopen sometime during the first week of May.
Update 4/22: A huge thank you to all who helped Thursday evening! We were able to remove the necessary items and send off all the clothing that needed immediate attention. We're still unsure about when things can be returned or when we'll be re-opening, but we're hopeful that a week or two will see things back to normal (more or less).
Update 4/19: Clean-up is underway after the fire damage at the RTL office and thrift shop. Much of the work will be done by a professional restoration company, but we can still use lots of help. Stage 1 will take place tomorrow (Thursday) from 6-8 pm. Parking will be on Poplar Street. We will need assistance with two tasks:
1. Move boxes/bags of damp clothing out of the store for people to take home to wash. We think that all clothing can be salvaged. Some other items may need to be discarded. If you're able, please bring gloves, empty boxes to transport clothing, and old rags or towels.
2. We can use many volunteers to take home bags of clothing to be laundered. Even if you can't stay to help empty the store, you can simply pull up to the curb and we will give you some laundry to take home and return later.
Posted 4/18: Due to damage caused by a catastrophic fire in an adjoining building, the Right to Life thrift shop and office will be closed until further notice.
