School Supply Drive & Tax-Free Weekend – Bring Supplies this Sunday!
This is a GREAT weekend to buy supplies if you haven’t already, because this weekend (Friday-Sunday, August 1-3) is Missouri Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday, so you won’t be taxed on the school supplies you buy!  Many families with children don’t have resources to purchase needed school supplies, so please help give them a good start to the school year with your donation. Items needed: sturdy backpacks, folders, pencil boxes, washable markers (wide line), pink erasers (Pink Pet), highlighters, Fiskar scissors, dry-erase markers, colored pencils, 3x5 index cards, #2 pencils, 3-ring binders (1”, 1.5” or 2” – please, no used binders or binders with printing), glue sticks, glue bottles, post-it notes, wood rulers, scientific calculators, flash drives, spiral notebooks (wide- and college-ruled), filler paper (wide- and college-ruled), composition notebooks (wide- and college-ruled). 

Register by Monday’s Deadline!
Kathy Sherrick is organizing this fun 6-mile float at Mound Ridge on August 16th. More information and registration is on the website and in the Gathering Space. Sign up today! (The deadline for registration is August 4th, payment is due August 10th.)
