Food Pantry:  Anyone who has anything extra from their garden can donate to the following:

            Harvest Share (Methodist Church)

            Carmelite Monastery—the nuns would be very receptive to donations since they are vegetarians

It was omitted from the July minutes that the Elysburg Food Pantry at the Methodist Church is in need of volunteers to help shop for food pantry items.  If you would like to participate, please call 570-672-2589 for details.

Library Donation: We need to contact them regarding their rules because next year we will be splitting                      our donation and we need to see that we will be included in their memorial publication.

NEW BUSINESS:

COMMITTEE REPORTS:

All Home Days Booklet: This is looking good for this year’s celebration.
