Youth Group Trip to AWSOM

Attention Youth Group. Bring your Furry Pet Lovin’ Friends and come on April 22, 2018 to see our four legged friends at AWSOM pet shelter. Please bring a bag lunch for after church to eat in fellowship hall before we take off. We will visit our furry friends and share the toys we made in March. We will visit from 11:30 to 12:30 and we will end our trip at Jane’s for ice cream. (Parents please pick up your child at Jane’s on 209 at 1:30.  Thanks so much.  Can’t wait to see you there!)

 If any member of the congregation would like to donate items for us to take along we would be happy to. They are always in need of multi cat kitty litter, fancy feast canned kitten and cat food and Purina dry dog food. Check out AWSOM’s website for their most urgent/up-to-date needs.

 See Miss Bobbi or Miss Heather for any questions.
