RS Weekly Update: Monday, July 7th through Sunday, July 13th

First and Foremost:
Thanks to Kelly Lyon, Natalie Rucker, Arlena Puffer, Marsha Johnson, and everyone else who helped make the 4th of July pancake breakfast such a success. Pictures from the event can be found here.

Important Notice:
  • SCHEDULE CHANGE: In reviewing this week, we realized that we have over-scheduled Enrichment activities due to poor communication and non-availability of instructors. Therefore, there will be no Cooking Club this week. Rather, it has been rescheduled for Tuesday, July 29th at 7:00 pm. Mandy Davies will be teaching Chinese Cooking. Starting in August, the Cooking Club will occupy its permanent time slot as the third Tuesday of every month, 7:00 pm.
This Week:
  • Remember, the temple will be closed for maintenance both this week and next, and will reopen to its usual schedule on Tuesday, July 22, 2008. Consider volunteering to help fulfill our ward's cleaning shift assignments. Contact Brother Roger Lyon for more information.
  • Homemaking 101: Easy Curtains & Valences: Thursday, July 10th, 7pm @ Hafer Road. Contact Sister Ginger Paruszewski for material requirements, etc.
  • BGDC: Compassionate Crocheting: Friday, July 11th, 10:00 am @ Hafer Road. Come learn to crochet (or come ready to coach), as we crochet afghans for sisters in the ward. Each sister is asked to bring a skein of yarn. Sister Claudia Del Papa for the specifics.
  • Garden Club: Fall Features Field Trip: Friday, July 10:30am @ Heiden's Feed Store (map it). Come for special instruction regarding what plants make the best fall gardens, and how to successfully grow fruit trees in southeast Texas.

Our intent is to edify rather than harry the sisters of the Olde Oaks Ward. Enrichment activities are developed to foster socialization and address the needs of specific interest groups. No one should feel obligated to attend. If you have ideas for low- or no-cost activities, if you would like to learn a skill we have not addressed, or if you have a talent you would like to share, please, let us know. Enrichment Committee: Jeanette Schadler, Claudia Del Papa, Marilyn Bullock.

  • 2nd Thursday of every month: Gardening Club
  • 3rd Tuesday of every month: Cooking Club
  • 3rd Thursday of every month: Temple Recommend Interviews
