Annual Plant Sale
The Kids’ Club annual plant sale will be happening again the weekends of May 4-12. They will have zucchini, acorn squash, tomatoes, and peppers as well as marigolds, zinnias, and petunias. All plants will be $2 either for a small 3-pack or for the larger single container. All proceeds will go to Food at First. The children will also be using some of these plants for their community garden which will be at the corner of 5th & Kellogg and open to anyone in the community to harvest from.
YOUTH 2019 Fundraiser
YOUTH 2019, a UMC leadership conference, is fast approaching. We’ve long been preparing for this event and have raised just over half of the funds needed. We are continuing to raise more money through various ways. Currently we are selling Everts Flowers “Bouquet of the Month” cards. The youth and adult leaders who plan to attend the conference will be selling these cards before and after worship services on Saturday and Sunday beginning April 27. They will sell them through Mother’s Day weekend. The group is also working with local restaurants to have Fun(d) Nights at their establishments. Be looking for those dates and locations soon!
Summer Fun Kits – Donations Needed
We would like to make sure children in need have items to make sure their summer is a fun and active one. On Sunday, May 19, the children will make Summer Fun Kits for children in need. Therefore, we will need to start collecting the suggested donation items now. Those items are things like: easy to read and fun books, outdoor sporting items, bubbles, jump ropes, sidewalk chalk, kites, etc. Please bring all items in by Wednesday, May 15. There is a box by the office. Items can come in after that date but we’d like to have as many as possible by May 15 so we can have a better idea of what we have/might still need before that Sunday. These items will be dispersed through the local schools.
