After Church Social Time
Is anyone just itching to take charge of our “after church social time” when we start our fall schedule? I am sooooo willing to turn the party over to someone else soon. Please consider !

Tuesday Gals
Tuesday Gals is going to be doing baskets again for the Christmas Fair. We plan on doing around 8-10 this year. We are starting very late this year, so we need to do 2 basket s at the same time.
The first two baskets are:

Car Wash Basket
All items to clean and shine vehicles inside ans outside will be greatly appreciated.

Celebration Basket
This basket will include items for celebrating all occasions and holidays.
Idea list is posted on our poster board in front of the large bulletin board in the Gathering Space. We appreciate all your help to make these raffle baskets a success for the Christmas fair! If you would rather donate money we will do the shopping. Once again, we appreciate you help!

Several members will be sharing how God speaks to them through music. Help us celebrate a wonderful year of music this last Sunday for our choir before the summer!

Summer “lemonade” hour up-date. Several folks have offered to bring in something for the munchies table…….which is very sweet. However , I have been informed that the freezer is well supplied with sweet treats from events we’ve had recently. And I have plenty of salty treats and cheese and crackers.

Weekly News for June 6

Kitchen Clean Up Day
OK, so Sat. (June 6) didn’t work for anyone to clean kitchen. Most of the folks who spoke to me about it certainly had much better things to do. And Sat. did turn out to be a wonderful day to not be in the church kitchen. The good news is , which I did not know, is that folks have been cleaning while on other duty, ie Friday Lunch crew, Mark and Lynn. The fronts of the cupboards have been washed down, the content of the drawers organized, the refrigerators are looking really good, the dishwasher is sparkling inside and out ! So, what I am saying as far as the immediate kitchen is concerned, only has a job or 2 to be put in in really good order, The rack needs to be organized, ( it is really bad ) and a couple of other quickie jobs. I think we are on top of this project and I can’t thank you enough. Jeanne

Summer coffee hour..……..or maybe I should say summer Lemonade Hour ! From now until next fall I will be putting a simple, hopefully tasty, munchies and cold drink table ( my goal is no more than 3 dishes to wash ) out for after church. If anyone is so inclined, your treats would be welcome. We have tons of lemonade, thanks to Lyn, tons of sweet treats in the freezer which I will be using. And there will always be chunks of Cabot cheese.
BYOC if you wish. Jeanne

Weekly News for May 16, 2018

Saturday will be a full day as we remember and honor Richard Brobst at a memorial service at 1pm with a reception following.

This is important for the Brobst family and for all of us in the church family. Recognizing that it will be a very full emotional day for all of us, we are postponing the all-church talent to a later date.

WANTED: Bakers and Helpers
I am looking for folks who can bake for, and/or help out with baking and serving for the Brobst reception on Saturday, May 19. Please contact Kathy Whittier at 254-7509 or kwhit119@yahoo.com.

Church Council meeting next Thursday May 17th 6:00 pm.

Pentecost Sunday, May 20 Readers
Do you read a different language other than English? And would you be willing to be part of our Pentecost reading in many languages? next Sunday May 20th. If yes please let Rev Nancy know. Languages that come to mind are French, German,
Greek, Latin, Spanish, Polish, others? A printed copy of same will be sent to you and then you will stand in your pew on Sunday and all will read simultaneously in different languages just like the first Pentecost.

Kitchen Cleaning
For those folks who feel like you missed an opportunity to “tidy up ” the church last Sat, (conflict with Town Meeting ), fear not. Our well used kitchen is in dire need of a very thorough cleaning. When you have to pry your hand off a drawer knob you know we need to do something. If 5 or 6 people can spend a couple of hours on a Sat Morning we can whip that place in ship shape in no time. Late May or early June would be a good time to do this so watch for specific time and date. Jeanne

Pentecost AND YOUTH Sunday
Rehearsal after school today-May 16.
Sunday, May 20th. Wear red (or orange or yellow that day)

Missions
Missions will hold a meeting on Sunday, May 20 at 11:00 am.

Coffee Hour
We need volunteers for the following dates to set up coffee hour: May 27, June 10, 17, 24. Thanks for letting Pat Field and/or Susan Elliott know if you will do it. There will also be a sign-up sheet on the Gathering Space front table.
