2014 Alan Feinstein Challenge – The Seneca Falls House of Concern and the Tyre Food Pantry are once again asking for our support in this year’s Feinstein Challenge. Monetary donations and canned goods are being requested. Monetary donations to the Tyre Food Pantry may be sent to 1887 Worden Rd., Seneca Falls, NY 13148 to the Attention of Helen L. VanArsdale, Pantry Coordinator or to the House of Concern, 35 State St., Seneca Falls, NY 13148. All monetary donations must be marked “Feinstein Challenge” in order to qualify for matching funds. A box is in the narthex to collect food and canned foods for the House of Concern. We will be collecting through April 31st.
End of Winter Celebration Dinner – Saturday, March 29th – Ice skating at the Geneva Recreation Rink from 12:45-2:45 p.m. We will return to church for a Taco dinner at 4 p.m. If you don’t skate, please join us for dinner. Sign-up sheet is on the table in the narthex.
Here is the fun part: There will be lots of prizes to give out at the dinner. Everyone can earn tickets to the big prize and all you have to do is bring a friend. Earn a ticket for every non-church member brought to join us for a chance to win a $25 gift card. There will also be many more prizes that everyone, including guests, will be able to win. Don’t miss out on a great way to end our very long winter. Contact Kristin Fleming with any questions.
