Picnic? When’s the picnic? The annual Deacon picnic has been moved to Kick-off Sunday in September. Look for announcements with the exact date in August. See you then!
UNDER CONSTRUCTION! Starting this week, lots of construction and remodeling projects will be starting at Fairmont. We will be removing the Fellowship Hall stage and converting it into additional storage space. In the next few weeks we will begin rebuilding the upstairs bathrooms and they may be out of order during the construction project. The downstairs men’s room will also be rebuilt. You will also see people working on the front courtyard on additional waterproofing and installing a new railing. Please be careful to avoid active construction areas this summer and please help us to keep little ones out. It will be a bit of a mess for a few weeks, but with your help we are building a better Fairmont for tomorrow!
Care Cards – Beginning today, hand-made cards will be available in the Narthex for anyone who wants to send a note of encouragement, appreciation, or celebration to a Fairmont member, a member of staff, or a participant in the worship service. These special cards, lovingly created by the FPC Craft Group, will be sent out from the office after the Deacons address them. Just select a card, write your message making sure to include the first and last name of the recipient, sign it, and drop it either in the offering basket or outside the office! There will be no charge for the cards and the Deacons will cover the cost of materials and postage.
Driving Members – Are you looking for ways to be more active members of Fairmont and interested in meeting fellow members of the congregation? The Deacons are looking for members of the congregation who are available to help some of our less mobile members make their way their doctor’s offices and other appointments. There is a sign-up sheet in Fellowship Hall. Just tell us your name, phone number, the days and times you are available, the distance you are willing to drive, and what kind of vehicle you drive. You will be contacted when your availability matches a member’s need. Thank you in advance for your participation.
Furniture Auction – In case you were wondering where the old parlor furniture and accessories were, check out the coatroom space between the Black and White Narthex and Fellowship Hall across from the renovated parlor. The chairs, tables, mirrors, lamps, pictures, etc. are for sale in a silent auction. Please write your bid on the clipboard associated with your desired item. The money raised will go toward the parlor renovation. Please make checks out to Fairmont Presbyterian Church and write “parlor renovation” in the memo line. The closing date for the auction is July 1.
House of Bread-Thanks to Paul and Carol Lamberger, Dave Diller, Don Davis, Sara Grilliot, and Sally Kaskocsak for their volunteer work on Tuesday, May 29.
