    HELP! We need someone to open up on Sunday morning, one time per month. If you could do this task, you would have your choice of the 3rd or 4th Sunday on a regular basis. The job involves unlocking the door, putting out signs, starting the beverage water heating, putting out supplies, etc. for the refreshment table. Also bringing out the round table, setting up table cloth and candle. Could you help??? Call Les.

    About our fellowship: As you know, our membership is high in quality, but limited in quantity. Please come to Sunday meetings whenever you can. More is better: more energy, more ideas, more hugs, more discussion. Your participation is valued. Hope to see more of you!
