John Maicher Memorial Scholarship
John Maicher was a member here at St. Mark’s. Sadly he lost his life to a rare medical condition. John’s family and friends started the John Maicher Memorial Scholarship as a way to cope with his death and keep his memory alive. As we all know this past year has taken its toll on fundraising. Please consider giving a donation to this Scholarship to keep his memory alive. Checks should be made to the John Maicher Memorial Scholarship and mailed to M & T Bank, 248 North Mill Street, Birdsboro, PA 19508.
The Outreach Committee will be putting together items for families leaving Safe Berks to take with them once safe housing is found.
