The Splash Party is coming up very soon (August 5 from 5:30-7:30pm: see ad below.) And we need some help getting ready for it. Here are the needs:

1)    Heavy-duty set-up help on August 5 (day of the event) from 3-5:30pm. Moving tables, sno-cone machine, setting up canopies, etc.

2)    Light-weight set-up help also on August 5 from 3-5:30pm.  Papergoods, food, cups, etc.

If you can help in any of these areas, please contact Elaine Hawkins or call the church office, 275-6111.
