What's going on in SERVICE
Brown Academy and us?
after-school program is for students from Brown Academy. Forty to sixty children, aged
9 to 12,
come at the church where adults check them in and help stow backpacks and
People from the congregation
direct arts and crafts,
play math games with the kids,
read to them,
give and get hugs, and
escort them to the bathroom.
Valuable support came from ---------------------
Lea Ann and Diane, the Principal and Assistant Principal, came with the
children to help keep things running smoothly.
Paul had laid the groundwork with
the Principal for this exciting program.
He and Christine made name tags and worked
out group assignments for everyone.
Doug set up the rooms and did
everything else needed on the spur of the moment.
Clark Williams and Rick Auten took pictures,

Volunteers included ----------------------
Betty and David,
Fran and Hoke,
Travis and Sondra,
Many, many thanks to this energetic and dedicated group.
After a busy hour, the children are conducted to their buses and rides.
Louise has taken over the Angels Project,
through which we give homeless and very poor children Angels who provide them
with necessities and treats every two weeks or so. Can you think of a more
appropriate Chairman of Angels than Louise?
Thank you Chuck T for continuing to buy, bag,
and deliver Friday snacks to the homeless children.
Linda and Barbara are our Teacher
for the Brown teachers. They have already taken candy with a message from the
church. Flowers were delivered on Valentines Day. All of us who teach or have
taught know how important these gestures are. Cheers for Linda and Barbara.
Valentine's Day Flowers
Gail is enthusiastically stocking the Brown
Bucks Store, where students trade positive reinforcement “bucks” for gifts,
toys, etc. Kudos to Gail for collecting money, buying the inventory, and
stocking the store.
Thank you to the congregation who have
brought school supplies and underwear and socks to church. Once again we have
taken a large boxful of paper, pencils, etc. What a congregation!
