St. Francis Reading Camp for Kids is rapidly approaching! Applications are still being accepted in the parish office. If you are planning to volunteer, I will be confirming with you the hours or days you plan to volunteer so we can create the final schedule. Remember to let me know if you have not completed "Safeguarding God's Children" so we can set it up for you.

Everyone should attend the final planning meeting on July 22 at 9 a.m. in the Parish Hall. If you can't make it, please let me know. Karen Owen and I appreciate all your help and look forward to a rewarding week.

Mark October 7 on your calendar today. You will hear a great deal more about the ECW & Vestry plans for St. Francis Day in the weeks to come. The Blessing of the Animals will continue to be a focal point and beginning to our day. We plan to start the blessings at 10 a.m. but you might want to come a little early this year. Our publicity efforts will be greatly expanded. The blessings will be followed by a costume contest for our furry friends that will be a hit with everyone.

In case the kids get bored, they will have free sno-cones and popcorn to fill their tummies and a Bouncy House to work off the calories. Once their energy is expended, they’ll be ready to sit for “face painting. The adults will not be idle either. We will have books and baked goods for sale. The whole family can then decide which holiday wreath they wish to buy for their home. Even the dogs will have a place to shop for their favorite home-made dog treats. Of course, the day would not be complete without an old fashioned fish fry and cheese grits. Don’t like fish? That’s okay we’ll have enough hamburgers and hot dogs to feed Pharaoh’s army!

Look for more details in the near future!
