DINING HALL RENOVATION:  Drywall installation is underway downstairs, with suspended ceiling installation to follow.  Volunteers are asked to speak with Trustees co-clerks Al Groth or Shane Hall to join upcoming work sessions on this important project.

AUGUST’s CHURCHES & COMMUNITY FOOD PANTRY SUNDAY at Winchester Friends is next Sunday August 19, when Friends are asked to bring a staple food item (or a dollar or two) to share with area residents struggling to afford adequate nutrition for their families.

CELEBRATE THE ARTS:  Please sign the sheet in the parlor to choose a remaining summer Sunday (August 19, 26, or September 2) to share your musical or nonmusical artistic abilities in praise to the Lord during worship while the choir finishes their break.  This fall’s choir practices begin on Wednesday September 5 at 7 PM — come sing with us!

RUMMAGE FOR CUBA MISSIONS:  Friends are welcome this month to bring donations of unneeded furniture, kitchen items, electronics, clothing, and other household items to the annex attic for the Fall Rummage Sale for Missions to be held Saturday September 15.  The sale will benefit the repair of the Quaker school facility at Puerto Padre, Cuba.  If you need assistance in transporting your donation to the meetinghouse, please call the church office.

THANK YOU, FRIENDS, for all the kindness shown and spoken to us in last Sunday’s activities marking the completion of our twentieth year at Winchester Friends.  We are humbled by the privilege of being released for ministry among you, and deeply grateful to be part of this faith community. 
–Pam & Ron
