The North Franklin County Chapter of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans will be holding a benefit barbeque and bake sale for Michael Baynes and his family on Saturday, October 15, starting at 11 A.M at Save-A-Lot in New Haven.

Mike has been diagnosed with melanoma and is currently receiving chemo/interferon treatments.  He is currently scheduled to receive these treatments through October 2012. Due to this, Mike has been limited to how much he can work. He and his wife, Jenny have two small children.  The family lives in New Haven.

If someone would like to make a donation and are not able to attend the BBQ, they can send it to Kurt Koch.  Donations made by Oct. 20 will be matched by Thrivent.

Thrivent Financial will supplement a portion of funds raised. Donations can be made to the North Franklin County Chapter. If you have any other questions, email Kurt Koch at
