Community Yard Sale
The annual Ramsey Road yard sale will be held on Saturday, August 12, and once again the Board of Deacons is offering you an opportunity to get involved! You can clean out your closest, garages, and basements, and sell your unwanted goods for cash at the yard sale! The deacons will be selling spaces in the back parking lot for just $10 (a 50th Anniversary bargain!) for you to set up a table and sell your goods. Spots will be on sale after worship on Sunday, June 25. Please note that not all spots will be shady, and you must bring your own table to display your items.
We will also need help from our congregation to supply our Bake Sale. We will need lots of "walking" baked goods - cookies, brownies, lemon bars, no-bake cookies, anything you can hold in your hand or in a bag while shopping. Please look for the sign-up sheet on the Current Happenings board in the office hallway to sign up. We have freezer space so if you want to start making your baked goods now, now we can freeze and store them until the yard sale day!
The Bocce season may be well under way, but you are always invited to join us in the evenings starting around 6:00 pm on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday for fellowship, sunshine, and a chance to cheer on friends! Who will win the coveted Bocce Trophy???
July 14 and August 11
The Women’s Lunch Bunch will meet at 11:30 a.m. on Fridays, July 14 and August 11. All women are welcome. Please sign up on the Women’s Bulletin Board across from the church office so we know how many to expect.

Please sign up on the Women’s Bulletin Board across from the church office so we can save a seat for you!
