The Men of our Congregation have reformed the men’s group for monthly gatherings. We were blessed by some of their gifts this past month as they supported the Trunk or Treat outreach ministry with a Spaghetti Dinner. The purpose of the luncheon was to purchase additional outreach items regarding our upcoming Trunk/ Treat Community Event. Special thanks to our congregation for their continued support, and the Men's Group who prepared and served the delicious pasta lunch.

“Test Prep All-stars” The Test Prep Project to prepare our community 5th graders for state assessment testing this spring has started. Science is behind us with Reading and Writing, and Math to go! 6 different 5th Graders attended at least one Science section last week. Thanks to all who have signed up to help. Reading and Writing Prep will take place on April 9 and 10, followed by Math on April 16 and 17.
