OUR OWN GEOCACHE

It you find it please leave a log message for Luke!
Additionally, Luke has added a Travel Bug to the Geocache. A Travel Bug is a trackable tag that looks like a dog tag. It moves from place to place, picking up stories along the way . Our Travel Bug is named "St Paul's Traveling Bug" and its code is TB7G2HR. You can track it at geocaching.com/track or using this link: travel bug

|JUST IN CASE
Berks Women in Crisis is always appreciative of gently used luggage donations. They are used when women leave the center. Without suitcases, they depart with their future in plastic bags. Carole Renninger works near BWIC in downtown Reading and is glad to deliver the luggage at any time throughout the year. Luggage may be packed with other items. Visit www.berkswomenincrisis.org for wish list ideas. Luggage may be placed in the church hall near Marlane's office.
We'd like to restart this wonderful congregational tradition. Instead of trying to choose a new date on our very busy calendars, the get-together will be held annually in conjunction with the Crop Walk. This year it will be Sunday, October 9 at the Daniel Boone Homestead. A main entree will be provided by Bause Catered Events. Contact Carole Renninger at firstname.lastname@example.org with ideas or feedback.
Save the date!
