The proceeds of this fund raiser will go toward a planned mission trip in February 2019 to Hope House in Thailand. The auction of large items will be Saturday. Saturday and Sunday there is also the yard and bake sale. Donations of items are greatly appreciated. So clean out those attics, basements and garages of things you haven’t any need for or no longer want — large or small — and give Sharie Pushman a call at 518-989-6873 or Pastor Bob Nash, 607-435-3081, for more information or if you need your donations to be picked up.

How’s your summer going? Taken any trips? Had company? Let me know so I can let everyone else know about your adventures.

Until next week take care, be thankful and please be kind to one and all.
