ANNOUNCEMENTS         

1.  A couple of the Sunday School rooms could really use some wall patching and painting.  It sure would be nice to get this work accomplished over the summer before church school begins in September.  I know Brian has offered to help patch the areas in need of that work and Kelsey has offered to help paint.  We could use some extra help to get this work accomplished so if you have some time, please contact Tom Dugan to let him know you would like to help out.

2.  Thank you to all who have donated their time and talent to make the soap bags for Hearts for the Homeless.  A delivery was made this week of 105 soap bags.  Keep knitting and crocheting those little bags, they are much appreciated.

 

3.  Do you have any talents or hobbies that you would like to share with the church?  The display case in the Narthex is waiting for your collection to be displayed.  If you would like to put something in the case, please contact the office.

following sizes:  Boys and Girls underwear size 6 and size 8 at one school and Boys underwear sizes 6-8, 
10-12, and 14-16 at a second school.  Either a monetary donation or clothing donation is acceptable.   See Jane Crossan or Leslie Dugan for more details on how you can donate and what items are needed.  There is also a designated tote in the Narthex to place your donations.
