Happy Labor Day Weekend Everyone! Kind of summer's last hurrah I guess. If you're taking off for parts known or unknown, safe travels and enjoy your time away!
I'm hoping this past Tuesday's Bluegrass meeting was productive, and you all were able to move ahead with plans for the festival. My sincere apologies for missing the meeting, but I was buried at work and just couldn't get away. I'm looking forward to our next get together on Thursday, September 6th, at 6:30. Rob will be back, and we should have a lot to tell him.
On Monday, September 3rd, St. Mary's will be responsible for the Open Door Meal. The menu this month is Sloppy Joes. I'm not sure if enough people have signed up, so check with Dawn or Gail. The meat is in the freezer, and I think recipes are available.
One of the most important dates in preparation for the Fall Bazaar is coming up on Saturday, September 8th, in Julian. The Methodist Church will be having their fall rummage sale, and, has been their habit, once they close their doors at 3:00, they give St. Mary's free rein to go through their unsold items. Helping hands, in addition to trucks and cars, are what is needed to bring our treasures back to Ramona. Then we just need to store it until our bazaar on the 13th!
The Women of St. Mary's will be meeting on Saturday, September 22nd, at 10:00 AM in the Haven.
I know you all hear Gail's reminders from week to week about Scrip. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of what scrip sales means to St. Mary's in the Valley. The ongoing success of that program plays a huge part in the financial well-being of our church, and your support is a critical component of its continuing success. It's sort of like American Express - don't leave home without your Scrip cards - where ever you go, make a scrip card your preferred method of payment! St. Mary's thanks you for your support!
