From Social Action Committee: Thanks to everyone who participated in donating and selling books and flea items on 4 separate HOT weekends in June and July. The Social Action Committee is happy to report that we collected nearly $700 from the effort. And we talked to a lot of FPC neighbors in the process. SAC agreed that Touching Tiny Lives, the Eastern Farmworkers, and the Peace Garden will all be beneficiaries of the funds. Linda Kolts, Chairperson, SAC
Summer Garden Parties: FPC's Friday evening Garden Parties will be held throughout the summer from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the Peace Garden. Light refreshments will be served. If you're interested in hosting, please contact Edna Asknes via the Church office.
