Thanks Matt! One that you can put in the next list: the Lake Shore YSA branch (Wilmette Illinois Stake) was just upgraded to a ward.

Sad day for Raymondville when it lost its only branch and now members have to drive more than 30 minutes to get to Church. What's even sadder is that a lot of the members are less active and there is no official missionary work going on in a town of 10,000 plus.
