November Recap

Men’s Night Recap

November 19, 2015

Before we opened our meeting with prayer we were introduced to Mike Zeitner, a new member to our community. He just moved here from Port Ludlow and will begin building a home very soon. Welcome aboard Mike!!!

Lee Cook (thanks to Pug Cook) put together a wonderful main dish of chicken and rice…it was great; all 15 men in attendance were impressed. Lou Blaesi (thanks to Karen) provided a great salad and a tasty treat for dessert. We also had garlic bread and a pink Jello like food item (didn’t know how to explain) but it was great…..had two servings!!!

Since I will be heading south on December 10 I threw out the question what did the Men’s Group want to do until spring. The vote was overwhelming that we will continue with Men’s Night on the first and third Thursdays of the month. Tom Anglin volunteer to take my spot as coordinator……thanks Tom!!!! For the month of December there will be only one Men’s Night and that will be on December 10. Then we will begin the New Year with a meeting on January 7. Tom is looking for two chefs for the December 10 dinner.

Chris Jamieson had a request list for us that included adding a few chair for Sunday service, hanging the clock in the back of the room and help with raking the leaves at the church entrance. Al Zalewski was not at the meeting but we gave him a call as he is in charge of the church grounds. Al asks that anyone willing to help rake up leaves be at the church at 9:00 on Saturday. There Chris your list is complete!!!

I talked a bit about North Shore Strong and a meeting we will have with Chelan Valley Hope on November 30. We want to keep NSS together and maybe expand our horizons a bit. More info after our meeting.

Darrell Alkema asked if we wanted to put together an effort to help people from our church that have needs such as minor repairs, yard work, etc. Sounded like a great idea to everyone. Darrell will take the lead and review request and ask for volunteers to assist. John Spencer will make a request form on the church website and we will ask Chris Jamieson to add a request form to the bulletin.

Finally I made everyone aware of a service called North West MedStar. Rather than explain it just follow this link for information  https://www.nwmedstar.org/Membership

We ended the evening talking about our plans for the winter. Some will remain in Manson and others will travel. It was fun hearing all the answers. I will miss you all while I’m away and look forward to seeing you again in the spring!
