Thank you to all who made our 2018 Oktoberfest event a success!  The volunteers, the chefs, the silent auction bidders, the basket auction ticket buyers, and of course all of you who faithfully make baskets each year for us to auction and those who donate their wonderful vacation homes for silent auction.  Without you, we have no event and the fellowship and fundraising it brings.

For Oktoberfest 2018 we raised $3,291!  Thank you!

Please look for our collection box in the narthex. We will also have a box to collect any donations you might wish to make so that additional supplies, especially backpacks, can be purchased. If you would like to donate money, please make check payable to:  St. Edward’s Episcopal Church and note in memo line “School Supplies.” Our goal is to collect enough for fifty packets of supplies. DONATION FINAL COLLECTION DAY IS THIS SUNDAY, AUGUST 5th, so that the children may receive their supplies well in advance of the August 23rd first day of school. If you have questions, please ask any committee member- the Milligan’s, the Lynch’s, the Ishler’s. We are so grateful for your generosity.

St. Edward’s First Annual “Sweaty Sunday” – June 24, 2018

The members of St. Edward’s Vestry invite all parishioners to participate in our First Annual

SWEATY SUNDAY

SUNDAY – JUNE 24, 2018

After the 10:15 service – 3:30 PM

(Rain Date:  Sunday July 1st)

Join us for an afternoon of yard work to spruce up the planted bedding areas of St. Edward’s.  Tasks will include:  weeding, trimming, spreading mulch, removing old/dead plantings, raking up leaves around building perimeter.

 Folks could contribute in a variety of ways:

– Through donations to cover the cost of mulch.

– Through signing up to provide food and beverages at an extended coffee “hour.”

– Through labor on the grounds. Individuals in this category should bring rakes, shovels, weeding instruments, trimmers, extension cords, wheelbarrows, etc.

The Vestry will be attending the Sunday service, dressed in outside work clothes and we invite parishioners to do the same!

We look forward to the members of St. Edward’s coming together on this day to celebrate our community, share fellowship, and work together in ministry in tending to this special place that is St. Edward’s!

Donations can be made payable to St. Edward’s and in the memo line write: “Sweaty Sunday.”  A sign up sheet will be in the narthex for food & drink items.

 

Feed My Starving Children – Social Outreach Activity

It’s that time of year again – time when you can make a difference in the life of a child. Feed My Starving Children will host its annual Mobile Pack event on April 6, 7 and 8. Once again, St. Edward’s has the opportunity to participate in this special event. Over the last 2 years, St. Ed’s has had a group of nearly 20 folks who participated in this event. We are hoping to have at least that many volunteers this year.

Last year’s event hosted 927 volunteers over 5 shifts in 2 days. The event raised over $51,000! And 217,728 meals were packaged – this was enough to feed 596 children a healthy meal every day for an entire year!! The meals were distributed to hungry children in Haiti. It’s hard to believe that this is possible with only 2 hours of your time.

St. Edward’s will be participating on Sat., April 7 from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm. Please see the sign up sheet in the narthex. As is the past, we can arrange carpool from St. Ed’s. If you have any question please see Peg Reiley or contact her at 717-940-2856 or doc4kids.1@netzero.com.
