Children’s Choir July 2011 Update

A beautiful sunny day on June 14th made a pizza and swimming party for our choir a very fun day. We had 20 children and 5 adults enjoying the sun and a swim. After swimming, we enjoyed a churn of homemade ice cream made by Joy Hutcheson. We honored 5 of our members with a Teen Bible. We thank Caycee Pannal, Andrew Sapp, Aaron Edwards, Charlie HeidtHarris and Julian Mobley for all the years they sang in the choir. They are entering the Middle School program at church. We know they will be faithful to this program. Children’s Choir will begin on September 7th at 2:45p.m. ending at 4:00p.m. On the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays, Faithweavers will follow choir ending at 5:15p.m. with a meal following. (See article in this newsletter with all the information about the activities for those days.) We would like to have all children in Kindergarten – 5th grade to participate in choir. You will have to send a permission note to Marlow Elementary School giving your child permission to attend and ride the bus to church. Please send your note to the school by September 7th. They will not let your child come if you have not sent your permission slip. If you have a child in Sandhill or South Effingham, we will pick them up with your permission or you can bring your child. You will have to send a permission note by September 7th unless you will be bringing your child. If you need more information please contact Melinda Heidt at 728-3288.

Senior Citizens July 2011 Update

Thank you to Dana Lee Smith for sharing her music therapy talents with the 39 folks present at the July Senior Citizens get-together. Everyone had a great time playing a big variety of instruments & singing along to old favorite songs. It was a fun time for all. Thank you also to Charlie & Melinda Heidt for the delicious meal they headed up and to all who helped provide it. We also appreciate the efforts of Norma & Francis Ralph who worked in the kitchen and Shelia Green who helped them clean up afterwards.
The next meeting will be on Wednesday, Aug. 24th at 11:30 a.m. Lamar Allen, from Lakeview Manor, will be sharing  information on assisted living facilities. Plan to come on out & enjoy a good meal & good fellowship. — And bring a friend!
