Saturday, August 17 – Bradford’s annual CarrotFest is fast approaching and we need your help. We have a booth in CarrotFest on this date and we need people to run it, handing out information, giving away our prayer squares and selling our now famous carrot dish clothes. The booth is a great way to connect with the community and let them know who we are and some of the groups, programs and events that we have to offer. There is a sign-up sheet in the Upper Room at the church, with sign-up in one-hour blocks from 8 am to 6 pm, as well as a few other needs. We need at least 2 people at the booth each hour, but 3-4 would be even better. Feel free to sign-up for more than one hour. We would love to see a whole variety of people representing the variety of people who are Trinity. Thank-you to those who already signed up. If you have any questions please contact Rev. Dana (remembering she will be away July 15-August 7).

Wednesday, August 21 – Summer Evening Hymn Sing, 7:30 pm, followed by ice cream sundaes! A letter of invitation, including the list of hymns on the program, is ready for you to pick up on Sunday July 7. The hymns were nominated by parishioners during the month of June. If you wish, you may dedicate any of the hymns on the list in memoriam, in thanksgiving, or perhaps just because you like it, as you give a donation in any amount.  Dedications may be left on the offering plate or in the church office, clearly marked “Hymn Sing”. All “Hymn Sing” donations will go direct to the repair and refurbishing of the concrete porch and steps at the south entrance of the church. If received by Wednesday, August 7, dedications will be in time to be mentioned in the event leaflet. I hope you will come and sing with us, and bring your friends and family! All are welcome, and everyone is invited downstairs afterwards for delicious ice cream sundaes. The ice cream is being donated by  Bradford’s 3 Scoops Ice Cream Shop. I look forward to seeing you the evening of Wednesday, August 21!     Margaret Schroeder, organist

Friday, September 13 – Trinity’s annual Steak BBQ.  Stay tuned for details.
