Setting the Alarm:  Oops!  Did you forget to set the alarm (sign out) when you leave the church?  This has happened twice on Tuesday afternoons, sometime after Noon.  Also, the sign-out clipboard (above the alarm) was not initialed. 

Remember to (1) Sign the clipboard, (2) push the “set alarm” button only when the alarm says it is ready, and (3) after pushing the button, listen for the sound indicating you have a few minutes to leave the building. 

Please mark your calendar for July 1st as the Eastrose Cleanup Day, 9:00 to 1:00. 


The art show in the Eastrose Lobby is by Robin Kerr.
Robin is known for her bold and whimsical style. Her drawings are a modern interpretation of traditional collage and print making, while her paintings are aggressively abstract.  Her work has been used commercially in cards, children’s books, small business promotions and health care public awareness campaigns. A selection of her acrylic on cotton canvas paintings and high quality illustration prints is be on view and available for sale from June through August this year in the Eastrose Fellowship Art Gallery.

Snacks – If you’ve been thinking of bringing in snacks for the children, now would be a great time to do it!  Fruit popsicles, fresh veggies, mixed nuts, fresh or dried fruits, gluten/allergen free packaged food, etc. – All would be much appreciated.
