Quivirans provide 800 warm coats for kids through donations to Lake Quivira Ministry
Thank you Lake Quivira !
Once again dozens of members of our Lake Quivira community joined in the effort to provide over 800 coats for children this 2017 Christmas season. Cross Lines Christmas Store served 435 households which included 2,014 people! It was a busy week, but so well worth it!
Thank you for choosing to be part of this heartwarming initiative. Somewhere there is a child keeping warm by wearing the coat you helped provide. This is truly the gift of love.
I will be starting the buying process for next year soon, so if you still want to give a donation, it will be appreciated. Please make checks to Lake Quivira Ministry with “Coats for Kids” in the memo line.

Bell Ringers raise record amount for Salvation Army
Lake Quivirans, you’ve done it again. The Salvation Army Bell Ringing on December 7 set a new record, and I have nothing but praise for your generous giving.
The Lake Quivira Men’s Bible Study group has been meeting at Lake Quivira for 20+ years, and we consider this particular event with the Salvation Army to be the highlight of our year.
I would like to thank the following Quivirans who were bell ringers: Jim Wright, David White, Frank Brown, Corky Nason, Gerry Watts, Dick Rippey, Mark Bainbridge, Harry Stewart, Joe Bartels, Bob Lee, Leo Despain, Kevin Grine, Steve Sestak, Gene Koski, Randy Treas, Leon Harms and Mark Logan.
In addition to our bell ringing, the Bible study group has other events. As always, we welcome any men at Lake Quivira to join our meetings. We meet the second and fourth Friday of each month at 7:30 a.m., usually at the Clubhouse, except in the first part of January.
In closing, I thank you all for the great forthcoming of gifts. We all look forward to being of service to you as a group in the next year.
Quivirans blessed through ‘Christmas In Song’
We want to share with everyone how incredibly blessed we were on Friday, December 1, when we attended the Christmas In Song program at the Lake Quivira Clubhouse. What a special evening showcasing the unbelievable talent here in our own community.
Alison Borberg was amazing. Her stage presence and vocal ability left us speechless. She was joined by the talented duo of Maddy Terril and Alison’s daughter Annie. Add to that violinist Rachele Jones and pianist Yona. We can’t seem to find enough adjectives! Capping off the cast of talent was the remainder of Borberg family playing drums, bass, keyboard and even reading verse. It all made for a very special evening.
This was the third annual Christmas In Song show at Lake Quivira and the first one we were fortunate enough to attend. It is our sincere hope not to miss another one in the future, and we encourage everyone at Lake Quivira to mark your calendars and not miss this blessing of the Christmas season at Lake Quivira.
Thank you to all who performed.
