Our plate recipient for November/December 2018 is Horse and Soul Ranch. Horse and Soul helps make a difference in the lives of survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and other violent crimes. Survivors gain courage and confidence through interactions with selected horses that provide the client a time to relax and escape the stresses of everyday life and motivate them on their journey to success.

To donate to the recipient, simply designate so on your check or offering envelope. Loose cash in the offering plate goes to Decorah UU.
