Upcoming Vote on New School & NYCC   
Kim Vine MSAD School Board contacted NYCC to see if she could answer any questions or concerns over the upcoming ballot question concerning the vote on the new property and new school.  If the ballot question passes, the new school will open in the fall of 2026.  This will mean a change for the corner of rte115 and rte 231.  There will be traffic work with a stoplight and a left turn lane off of 115 to accommodate the added traffic.  There will be an evening meeting at Wescustogo Hall on October 5 at 6pm.  Please contact Kim at kvine@msad51.org with questions. 

A Note from the Office
The office will be closed on Monday, October 10 for Indigenous People’s Day

The Men’s Club gave the NYCC “Street Ministry” so much product from their fair booth that will be used for our monthly bag lunches. Very, very generous!  We froze a lot of bread and rolls, many homemade sweet treats, and 2 big packages of cheese! This helps more than you can imagine. Thanks, Guys.

It’s not too early for those who will be writing a report for the Annual Report to start their engines, I mean REPORTS, now.  At least thinking about them.  It’s uncomfortable for me to hassle, beg, twist arms. or threaten folks to get reports in to Lyn at church office. Sooooo, that is not going to happen. I will send out reminders for the next several weeks and would appreciate reports in by early December. Send to nyarmouthccucc@gmail.com, please.

Jewelry Request for the Christmas Fair
Are you sure of what’s in your jewelry box or drawer?  Got some items to go with a particular outfit and that’s no longer in your closet?  Tuesday Gals would adore having the items for our guests at the Santa’s Workshop fair.  What about lapel pins, rings, tie tacks, chains for men?  Please bring your items to Lyn in the church office.  Or stop in and chat with Tuesday Gals; we are in the Fellowship Hall starting at 10:00 am.
