HCC Book Club - March
Hello readers. The book club is still going strong with wonderful conversations and learning. Growing with each new book. All are welcome as we continue to meet via Zoom. We just finished our third book the end of Feb. and are beginning a 4th on Tuesday March 16th. The book for March is another historical fiction: News of the World by Paulette Jiles. Contact Art DeRooy with questions or to receive meeting emails.
A member of our Hilmar Covenant family, Hank Tolsma, is very much in need of housing. He is needing a new home within the next three weeks. If you know of any available housing, please contact Pastor Bud as soon as possible.
New volunteers needed for USDA food boxes! We have lost three men who helped move food items from pallet to table and boxes into vehicles. If you can handle a bit of “heavy lifting” for two hours one morning a month, contact Marie Anderson (209-678-5869), USDA coordinator.
USDA food distribution is the fourth Tuesday of each month.
The long-awaited Hilmar Covenant Church Centennial Book from 2002 is once again in the process of being edited! This 100-page book will be available from Shutterfly, hopefully by May. Normally, a publication this size is expensive (over $100). However, from time to time books this size are offered at Shutterfly’s base price of $30 plus shipping. If you would like to order the book at this much reduced price, send your contact information to Carolyn Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can compile a list. When the special deal is available, you will be contacted, given the link for the book, and you can order your Centennial book. You will need a Shutterfly account.
The history of our church and community was beautifully written by Lloyd Ahlem and the photos that accompany the story are captivating. Contact Carolyn soon.
