 October 11, 2015 Organ Concert at St Alban's - 2pm with a reception to follow. This is the first time the Bolivar area public has had the opportunity to see and hear our 109-year-old Vocalion.
Kathy Brown, Bill Brown, Jennifer Smith and Daniel Hancock will all play both classical pieces and hymn arrangements. Invite your Friends!
We will not have coffee hour this Sunday, but will encourage you all to get some lunch and return for the concert and reception.
Please contact Becca about what you are donating for the reception after the organ concert! (We are sponsoring the reception - we are having only finger foods due to probably not having enough space for people to sit and eat) We need veggie trays, cut up fruit, and batches of cookies!
 Days for Girls Sewing Days: Oct. 13th, November 10th, December 8th, and January 12 (2016)

Please bring your energy, sewing machines, irons, sergers if you have them and be ready to enjoy time with your friends as we make washable menstrual pads, shields and carrying bags to assist girls in developing countries get to school even during their periods!  
If you come into the building for any reason, please be sure that lights and thermostats are set to off. Our electric bill went  down again in September because of your careful attention!
