We are planning to have our Thursday evening dinners in the month of June beginning June 2 at 6:30pm. Meat and drinks will be provided. You are encouraged to bring a side dish to share. So get out your calendars and plan to join us the first 4 Thursdays in the month of June. Good food, good fellowship!
Common GoodHelp Serve
Common Good , which is a part of Embrace, has asked us to help with the Thursday summer program meals.  This is a six week summer program and runs from June 6 to July 14.  Tom Eblen  is the point of contact and can help with most Thursdays but will be out June 9 and July 14.  Please check your calendars and see if those Thursdays are available.  If enough of us can help, it would be three sessions or less for each of us. The time frame will be from 11:30 to 1:30.
ALL of the students gather at 12:30 to eat lunch  together.  It’s our understanding we will be serving chicken breasts, mac and cheese, etc.

craft fair

Have you started your craft yet?
November 6 has been set for our 2016 Fall Festival and Crafts Fair hosted by the Rachel Circle. The goal this year is to help fund
appliances for our new kitchen! You are invited to participate by submitting your unique crafts or other donations to help make this a success. Last year we started very late in the year. We want to make it even better by giving you more time.
In addition to the crafts, silent auction and mystery gifts, there will be chili, soup and desserts to enjoy for a small fee. Please start thinking and preparing things now and be ready to join in the fun on
Nov. 6.
