A 40th anniversary commemoration of community success will include recognition of the increasingly dire straits faced by the area’s needy.

Metro Lutheran Ministry will hold its annual Power of Each One event Nov. 5 with a mix of joy and solemnity. The evening will feature entertainment by River Ministries and recognize MLM volunteers, supporters and success stories. It will also include acknowledgment of the growing ranks of area needy.

“The need is very real,” noted MLM President Scott Strohm, a Shawnee resident and attorney with Shook, Hardy and Bacon. “The need is not theory. It’s right there.”
