For the past five years, Dave Bartock has managed our website. Whenever anyone in the church gave him material, he posted it on the website for us. Thanks, Dave, for volunteering your time, and for a job well done!
Alison Diehl has spent countless hours keeping our library in tiptop working order. She has displayed books of interest for viewing by all in various places throughout the church. We are grateful for Alison’s willingness to volunteer her time and talents for this job. Thank you, Alison, for your years of service.
Please report any “angel activities” you encounter to Ginny Swarthout at 352-1466, email her at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave a note in the Membership Committee mailbox.
Come in and check out what’s new at the library (more changes are coming) and check out a book or DVD while you’re there! I’ve been doing some “weeding” to make room for more new books & DVD’s.

A thank you to Ann Wolfe for donating lap robes from her aunt; several of them were given to a Girl Scout who was collecting lap robes for Meals on Wheels for her Gold Award.
We continue to make our 8” squares to put together for lap robes (although Elaine Hay is jumping in with all our “leftovers” and making a granny square blanket at the moment). If anyone would like to make 8” squares at home, please use a washable yarn and drop them off at church. And, please, if you know of someone who would appreciate a “bit of warmth,” please let me or the church office know.
Our next meeting is Wednesday, November 3, 2010, at 6:30 pm. Please come and join us!
