Thank you to all who signed up to provide food for the Hypothermia Shelter for February and March. I know it was a large undertaking to provide food for 50 people! Once again, WFUMC answered the call to assist our Route One Corridor neighbors.

*Outreach is initiating a new program in association with the monthly Rising Hope Food Collection.   In addition to inviting those who want to donate to drop off food at Sy’s home and at the Education Building, we will be hosting drop-offs in the North (gravel) parking lot across from the church on Friday the 26th through Monday the 29th from 11 am to 12 pm.   The idea is to allow people the opportunity to see each other outside and be more a part of the ministry.  You can still drop food donations off at the Education Building at any time during the month. Sy will get it to Rising Hope. Sy Berdux will be the point person for this.  I would like members of the congregation who are able to help collect to come and volunteer to help Sy collect.  I would like at least 2 people at each drop.  We are going to pilot this for the month of March, then we can get a Signup going forward.   Outreach Chair, Scharn Robinson. If questions email outreach@washingtonfarmumc.org.


*Rumor has it that Larry Dawes is again planting seeds for a plant sale in his driveway for to help out the UMW Scholarship Fund. They are missing their second major fundraiser, the Spring Yard Sale.  If your garden is overcrowded, please consider separating your plants, putting them in pots and bringing them to Larry’s Garden Center (aka his backyard) to be included in the plant sale in May.  The more the merrier. Be sure to label the pots so he knows what he’s selling. Standby.It will one weekend in May.
