FROM REV. ALEX
We’re having a picnic on Sunday, August 23. Information is elsewhere in this B&B. What I’d like to see is to have everyone in a circle with families together but otherwise social distancing. I’m hoping to get a portable speaker unit where I can invite people to speak through a microphone and say hello to everyone else. More details later. I do expect we will need to bring our own chairs. Food as well; sharing is up to each of us.
 
We are doing various topics for the Zoom Small Groups in coming weeks. The one for Thursday is on cemeteries, burial rituals around the world, and the perception of ownership of land. Next week we’ll talk about what foods you have most enjoyed during the pandemic.
Anyone is welcome to join us on Tuesdays and Thursdays for small groups; Wednesday for meditation. The links for Zoom groups are elsewhere in this B&B.
 
Stay tuned for more info on live-streaming services starting August 30 (tentative).

Every month we share our offerings with a community group whose mission is consonant with ours. This month we have selected Women’s Services. Women’s Services has worked to help victims of domestic and sexual violence. If you are able, please make a donation to them online, https://www.womensservicesinc.com/how-you-can-help/donate/ in any amount you are able. May we be committed to using our gifts to make a difference in the world. Thank you!

Hope everyone is taking good care of themselves and their loved ones. During this difficult time of confinement and social distancing, we need to busy ourselves with productive activities… Just a reminder that our “Yard Sales” project remains in effect on an ongoing basis…Now is the perfect time to clean out those closets or tackle the attic. You’re bound to have some treasures to sell! Remember all you have to do is snap a picture and text it along with a description about the item to Michele (814) 332–0999 or to Peggy (724) 256-2268 and we will take care of it from there. Posting on Facebook is one of the easiest and fastest ways to make money…

And remember we DO still have our Ooh La La consignment boutique account is up and running. The store itself is closed right now of course but when it is re-opened feel free to drop off ladies’ summer clothing items for consignment. Since we created the account, we’ve made over $1000!

Love and Light to All…
Michele Baker
