We are having a Trash Pick Up Fundraiser on October 7, at 12pm.
We can earn up to $500 for our church from the township of Vernon, by
picking up trash along Sand Hill and McPeek roads. The town will
give us gloves, trash bags, reflective vests and t-shirts. All we
need to do is get 8 to 12 people ages 8 and up to pick up roadside
litter and leave it in bags for the town to collect. We will
reschedule if it rains heavily, but not for light rain. See
Emilie Dupont or Diane Rossi for a permission slip for children/youth
group members. Adults do not need a release form.
Save the date! Oktoberfest/Auction of the Gifts will be held on October 20, beginning at 5:30 with dinner and silent/live auction.
Oktoberfest dinner includes assorted German sausages, homemade potato
salad, warm pretzels, and delicious mustard. BYOB. German and American
desserts will be potluck, so please sign up. Tickets are $10 per person
or $25 per family.
The food pantry is
in need of shampoo and deodorant (men’s especially), liquid laundry
detergent, canned fruit, boxed rice (Rice A Roni type), pancake mix and
snack items for school lunches such as juice boxes, granola bars, fruit
snacks, and cookies.
