    URLC COUNCIL NOTES MARCH Council Updates Financial reports were reviewed in detail and the financial status is stable. The 3R debt has been reduced to $110,500 with a matching campaign that will run through the summer. There are several summer activities being planned related to recognition and further fund raising. Recent activities such as the choir concert, the Adult/ Teen Challenge service and presentation, and the Mother’s Day brunch were successful. Sunday School and confirmation are done for the school year. The summer service schedule will begin on Memorial Day weekend. The Council approved a revised Church Facility rental policy agreement that can be accessed through the church office. A revised pet policy was adopted and will be placed in the policy manual. The Block Party will be held in September. Synod assembly representatives are being sought.

    We are in need of 3 volunteers to make and serve a meal July 13th!

    We will be feeding the volunteers who are packing up and cleaning out the school after the campers leave. Lunch

    needs to be served at noon in the Pine Island elementary school. (There was a location change from the High School

    to the Elementary School.)

    We will be feeding and serving 25 to 30 people, not including any of our own crew. Feel free to join in for lunch.

    We will need a main course, salad or chips, beverage (water is fine or a beverage cooler with ice water, tea, lemon-

    ade, etc) dessert is optional. Keep it simple! There is no access to the school kitchen, so food will need to be ready to

    eat when you arrive. We should have outlets and chords available if there are crock pots or roasters to plug in.

    There will be paper plates, cups, napkins, and silverware at the school for you. We can choose the menu. Sloppy joes

    are already on the menu for previous days.

    There will be people at the school available to help carry things inside.

    Please let Pastor Marggi know ASAP!
