Summer Vacation & Camp Vick
It’s never too early to think about summer vacation! When school is out, the kids will be longing for some fun get-a-ways with the family and friends. Camp Vick is one of many ways to break in the summer with recreation and leisure activities. Contact Beth DeLooza at 536-3162 for more information about Camp Vick and its opportunities.
Our trip to the planetarium is set for Saturday, April 19. The van (if we have enough people), will leave from the church parking lot at 9 a.m. We will be seeing “Spring Night Sky”. The cost is $5, however if that is a problem contact Eileen. Reservations need to be in to Eileen by April 13. 694-8267. Some adults are needed to chaperone.
Vacation Bible School
June is still a few months away but it is never too early to start the planning for VBS. This year’s theme is The Jerusalem Marketplace and help is needed. We need Tribe Leaders, Tribe Helpers and Shop Keepers. A VBS planning meeting will be held on April 8, at 7 p.m. Anyone interested is welcome or contact Sue Willson.
Charm is the ability to make someone else think
that both of you are pretty wonderful.
