FOR YOUR INFORMATION:

The Chairman asks we all assist in ensuring after use of our Buildings are locked, lights are turned off where applicable and water at basins, sinks etc is turned off. This has come about after the water was found running in the Hall toilet basin on Wednesday night after an undetermined amount of time. As issues are noticed please advise Gayle at the Office or contact the Chairman.

Delicious and Delightful:

As a part of our continuing support for our wider community, our church is running the Children’s Activity Tent at our annual ‘Delicious and Delightful’ festival to be held on Saturday 27 August.

As we haven’t had our usual Holiday Fun Time, we are hoping we could put our talents and resources into this event. We are looking for volunteers to:

· Help to set up Friday afternoon (26th)

· Help decorate the tent Saturday morning 9am

· Help prepare craft activities

· Help with craft activities and simple games on the day

· Sell tickets for jumping castle and other ticketed activities

Our tent will be running from 12 midday through to approximately 6pm. We will have a roster set up so even if you have one hour to spare, it will be greatly appreciated.

It is thought that we could either wear our blue St Mark’s shirts or our HFT blue shirts (with something underneath them for winter!)

Anyone interested in helping, please see Lois Strand or Cameron Brauer.

Happy Birthday this week to:

Chris Heintze (Tues); Brock Hartwig (Tues); Logan Hartwig (Tues); Carolyn Bazley (Sat); Erin Reichelt (Sat); Tiffany Schelberg (Sat);
