ANNOUNCEMENTS

All are invited to the Alliance Book Review on Wednesday, April 17 at 10 am in the Fogg Parlor (new location). Betsey Detwiler will give her recommendations for some great books to read. Light refreshments will be served.  

Bring your whole family for breakfast served before church Easter morning, April 21, from 8:45 to 9:50 am. The cost is $3.00 per adult/$2.00 per child and a max of $10 per family but don’t ever let cost stop you from joining us. Help is needed! We will supply a recipe and pan for a breakfast casserole which you bake at home and bring in by 8:30 am. Or, you can make or buy a coffee cake. We also need servers and people to clean up. We will set up Saturday morning (April 20) at 10 am. To volunteer to help in any way, contact Peg Kitchenham

There are less than two weeks left in our “Returns for Planet Earth” campaign! The program ends on Earth Day, Monday, April 22 . Please bring in those “returnables” of empty bottles and cans (carbonated soft drink, beer, malt beverage, and sparkling water bottles and aluminum cans) that have “MA” and “5¢” markings. Please contact Les Taylor with any questions you have via email or at 781-837-2929.

The Penny Drive is back! The children in RE voted earlier this year to collect money to be donated to an organization that helps those with pediatric cancer. All contributions will go to the Magical Moon Foundation here on the South Shore. From their website: “It is the mission of The Magical Moon Foundation to support families faced with cancer. While there are many wonderful organizations that support cancer research, the MMF is unique in being a non-profit organization that focuses on empowering children to use their inner strengths to manifest miracles in their lives. The magic behind Magical Moon begins by encouraging children to find the warrior within.”  We will have the Penny Jar out on the Welcome Table for the remainder of the church year. Thank you for your support and generosity! Consider highlighting products or services, sales or promotions, personal bios, and more. Use images that complement your message, and link your images to supporting resources.

A list of who purchased auction items has been posted on the bulletin board in the Parish Hall under the TV. There is also a list of unsold donations which can be purchased by e-mailing Peg Kitchenham .
CARING CORNER

Phyllis Cohen will be remembered at a memorial service on Saturday, May 4 at 11 am in the Meetinghouse.  Peg Kitchenham is coordinating the arrangements for the collation afterwards. If you can help set up/cleanup, provide food or serve food and beverages during the collation, please let her know.
