October will be ~ The Giver of Stars
by Jojo Moyes
Alice Wright marries handsome American Bennett Van Cleve hoping to escape her stifling life in England. But small-town Kentucky quickly proves equally claustrophobic, especially living alongside her overbearing father-in-law. So when a call goes out for a team of women to deliver books as part of Eleanor Roosevelt’s new traveling library, Alice signs on enthusiastically.
The leader, and soon Alice's greatest ally, is Margery, a smart-talking, self-sufficient woman who's never asked a man's permission for anything. They will be joined by three other singular women who become known as the Packhorse Librarians of Kentucky.
Please join us on Tuesday October 26th at 7pm for discussion and refreshments at the home of Jan Strojny.
10-Digit Dialing becomes effective on October 24, 2021
A ten-digit dialed telephone call requires entering both the three-digit area code and the seven-digit telephone number to complete the call, even if the area code is the same area code as your own. When an area code transitions to ten-digit dialing, you will no longer be able to dial seven digits to make a local call.
Transitioning to ten-digit dialing will not affect your current telephone number. Your phone number, including your area code, will not change. You will still need to dial a 1 before the 10 digits for anything outside your area code.
Any 3 digit services, such as 911 are still just 3 digits.
TUESDAY TUNE UPS
For those who are unfamiliar with our group of walkers, we are small in numbers, but have been around for 8 years. During the nice weather, you will see us on the Yankee Woods path, or just walking the neighborhood. We have been very flexible on our schedule since Covid, so it may not be Tuesday that we are walking. If you are interested in joining us for a 3-mile jaunt, please see Deb Frawley. See you soon!
A small shoebox can have a big impact. What goes into the box is fun, but what comes out of it is eternal. Be a part of changing children's lives all over the world in Jesus' Name through the power of a simple gift with Operation Christmas Child. Once again, we will be filling shoe boxes- plastic or cardboard with small gifts to send to a boy or girl overseas. There are direction & idea sheets available from Linda McHugh. Please bring the boxes to church anytime until November 14. Then they will be delivered to the drop off point. Let’s show the children around the world that we care.
This box will be for paper goods for the Crisis Center. Paper items only. Some suggestions: toilet paper, napkins, hand wipes, tampons, paper plates, baby diapers & Kleenex. Thrivent will be contributing with this project. The box is getting full already and we are hoping to fill it to over flowing. This will end October 31. Thank you to all.
