“Thursday Group” needs Help!
If you would like to exercise a little, enjoy comradeship, coffee, perhaps even doughnuts, and have fun (even fixing things now and then) why not join the “Thursday Group”. We mow the church lawn every Thursday and are looking for a few good persons (Man or Woman!)
Qualifications: Be able to meet one morning/afternoon each week. We meet on Thursday mornings right now (8:15 +-), but in a couple of months will start meeting afternoons (avoids dew).
One of our group has staked out mowing parts of the lawn on Wednesdays since he golfs on Thursday morning. He misses out on fixing things, but we sure appreciate his mowing job when we show up on Thursdays!
“Young” retirees preferred (we are mostly over 75); some way, way, over 75!
If you would like to explore the idea of joining our stalwart group, please call my cell phone, 925-408-9111, or email me at email@example.com. Your help would be appreciated!
Thursday Yard Crew
This summer, CUMC’s Project Linus “Blanketeers” finished over 100 blankets!
By the way, this does not include the 35 blankets we made for all of the families who participated in Winter Nights this past spring!
In September, we will be bringing all of the blankets to the Project Linus East Contra Costa Chapter contact. Before bringing them to Brentwood, Pastor Lee will be blessing our blanket offerings at all three services on September 22nd. If you have helped in any way (by donating your time, money, fleece or other quilts and Afghans) please come and see this beautiful thing you’ve helped us accomplish.
Although we are finished with official workdays in 2013, we are still accepting donations of money and 1½ yard cuts of NEW fleece for next year. Donations made by check with “Project Linus” in the memo line will be reflected on your statement of giving.
Mark your calendars for January and February of 2014 when CUMC’s Project Linus work days will start up again.
If you have any questions, feel free to call or email:
Mary Spryer at 925-876-3520 or
firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note Project Linus in the subject line.
