Participating in the 3 Day is very rewarding but also very challenging

team back out on the route for day 2 & 3 (miles 30-60!!) they could
use a little motivation and encouragement. The 3 Day has mail boxes
for the walkers and crew and they LOVE to see lots of cards, letters, &
postcards stacked up with their name on it!
To send a card, letter or postcard to your friend or family member
(no packages please!) just send it postmarked no later than August

COLLECTION OF SCHOOL SUPPLIES: (This is a combined project of the
Mission Team and the GEMS!) During August and into September
we will be collecting school supplies for the over 200 school bags that
Phyllis Vander Sloot has already sewed for this purpose. These
‘School Kits’ will be given to Church World Service. Church World
Service sends these kits around the world to children in
impoverished schools, refugee camps, and other difficult settings so
that children can have the basic tools for learning.
The bags need to be filled with specific items.
Each bag will contain the same school supplies:
1 pair of blunt scissors (rounded tip), three 70-count spiral or tape-bound pads of 8” X 10 ½”
ruled paper or pads with 200-210 sheets of ruled paper (Please do not provide loose-leaf or filler paper),
one 30-centimeter ruler (12” ), one hand-held pencil sharpener, one large eraser, six new pencils with erasers,
one box of 24 crayons (only 24). Bring the requested school supplies to church.
Boxes are in the narthex to collect the school supplies for filling the bags. Presently our goal is to fill 200 bags.
