have hard copies but hope to have computer version done first.

farmers during worship and ask that several will drive their tractors

providing fried chicken and asking the congregation to bring the
side dishes for an outdoor meal together.      

July-August time frame – there is a fundraiser possibility of a
Bunco party in the church basement – see Anita.

September 8  – a Church Yard Sale – we will offer
members and community folks a parking space in the south

$10/space.  We will coordinate with the Village as part of the Fall
Festival activities.  Time: 7am – 3pm.  Church Life will also take
donations from anyone to sell and then send to Vincent DePaul
