Friday Lunch

Our next Friday Lunch will be held this Friday, October 7. Please join us for good food and good conversation from 11:30-1:00 pm.

Save the Date! Chicken Pie Supper on Friday, Oct. 28

To all you wonderful, enthusiastic volunteers out there,

Please mark your calendars right now and block out these dates:

Oct. 24, Monday, 10:30-11:30 am: Make dough balls

Oct. 25, Tuesday, 1-3:30 pm: Pick chicken

Oct. 27, Thursday, 9-11:30 am: Roll pie bottoms

Oct. 28 Friday, 10:30-noon and 12:30-2:30 pm: Roll pie tops & assemble Chicken Pies!

If working in the kitchen isn’t your thing, we also need a few people who can do tasks of shorter duration; for example, set up the tables, clean up and put things back to normal after the chicken pie supper, etc.

This event is a significant fund-raiser for our church, and it has earned a strong following, serving many people from surrounding towns. When we put on a successful chicken pie supper, we can give back even more to the community at large…it’s a win-win event!

Please be thinking about how you can help; we have many types of volunteer activities, i.e. something for everyone. To express an interest in helping make this a big success, call Lyn in the office at 829-3644, or email Pam at james2@maine.rr.com.

Thank you in advance, Mark Heath and Pam Ames

The office will be closed on Monday, October 10 for this holiday.
