RIDES TO CHURCH ON SUNDAY MORNINGS
Recently we have had some requests for rides to church for some of our seniors who do not drive or live within walking distance of KUC. This issue arises periodically and it would seem to be a very caring act of outreach to provide a roster of names we might call on for regular or occasional rides to church. If each area of Kamloops had a few or several names offering rides no one would have to feel obligated for every Sunday and the onus for requesting rides would lie with the person who needs the ride.
If you would be willing to let your name stand on such a roster for rides in your general area of Kamloops would you please give me a call or email. Arleen Simmonds 250-374-2135 email email@example.com
If you have a need for a ride or know someone who does the above contact information can also be used
PIT STOP NEEDS HELP FOR SUMMER SUNDAYS
We are having difficulty filling the PIT Stop Schedule for 3 of the Sundays during the summer. Teams are needed for July 31st (the BC Day long weekend), August 14th and August 28th. We are currently serving 130 + people each week. As usual preparations begin at 12:30, the meal is served at 3:30 and clean-up is usually completed by 5:30. Anyone who is willing to join a team for any of these days, if you are available either for the whole 5 hours, or a portion of the time, please contact me. We require 10 – 12 volunteers for each dinner. If no one comes forward PIT Stop will be cancelled on these days. Thank you for considering lending a hand. Send me an email at pitstop.stuart@gmailcom or call me at 250-374-5196 and leave a message.
