ANGEL TREE GIVING FOR CHRISTMAS  Please stop by our table in Fellowship Hall to select the “angels” who you wish to gift this season.  Our “angels” are: 1) adults with intellectual disabilities served by Starkey, a nonprofit agency that enables clients to live and work in the community.  Starkey identifies those with very low incomes and little family contact, who would otherwise have no Christmas gifts, and 2) Gammon students and family members who are identified by Gammon teachers as those striving to overcome serious economic hardships.

The tags identify their wish list.  We ask that you purchase at least  three items on the list. Your gifts should be wrapped, placed in a clear plastic bag with the original tag, and returned to Fellowship Hall no later than Sunday, December 8.

COLLECTING WINTER COATS FOR GAMMON STUDENTS – With the arrival of cold weather, we have learned that some Gammon students from low-income families are coming to school without heavier coats. If you have gently-used children’s coats, sizes 5 – 12, that are no longer being used, please consider donating them for a Gammon student.  You may bring coats to the designated area in Fellowship Hall during the next few Sundays.  Of course, new coats will also be welcomed! 

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED at Gammon Elementary on Thursday, Nov. 21 for 3 ½ hours in the morning or afternoon to help the Physical Ed teachers with a Body Venture creative interactive exhibit. The students will learn how the different parts of the body function and the part that good nutrition, not smoking, and exercise plays in keeping the body healthy. Contact Cyndi Richter at ccrichter@cox.net for details.
