Weekly News 12/7/11

Good morning to you all, as I start this it is morning!!  I hope all is well with you all and that blessings from above are flowing.  I am looking forward to visiting with the pastors and wives this Friday evening.  Thank you to the Fellowship Team for their efforts in this event.

So Pastor's and Wives, the dinner is this Friday, night, 6:30 PM, at Black Bear in Grants Pass.  The restaurant, in case you don't know, is off the exit 57 (second exit going north I-5 in Grants Pass).  If you are coming from the coast, go up 7th street all the way to the Freeway and turn on Morgon just before then down 6th street.  It is on the right hand side across from McDonald's.

Any questions call Sherry at 541-582-1617.

Be sure to take a drive after the dinner through downtown.  It is pretty this time of year.

A professional photographer will be there for a photo op.  You will get a free 8 X 10. I do not know how any other sizes will be worked out for you.  This a local photographer.

Okay here we go.  I will make a few changes so see if you can find them,  Ha Ha.
