We had a nice group of ten for our Men’s Night on August 20th. That’s not bad considering the fires, smoke and problems in our Valley.
Lee Cook and I put together a pretty dang good meal if I don’t say so for myself! We enjoyed a creamy chicken over white rice, ravioli, salad and garlic bread. Tom Anglin’s wife sent along a wonderful apple cake for dessert. Almost forgot about some juicy sliced peaches right off our tree…..very good! Pastor Craig and John Jamieson signed up as cooks for our next meeting on Thursday – September 17.
Bruce Bain brought us up to speed on “Date Night” that was cancelled last Sunday because of the fires. After much discussion (trying to figure out how we could watch all the Seahawk games) it was decided to hold Date Night on Thursday – September 3rd. If you have already signed up and cannot make that day just get ahold of Bruce for a refund. If you have not signed up there is room for you and your bride. Just see Bruce on Sunday.
Next we talked about Seahawk tailgate parties. In the past we held tailgate events at North Shore in the gym. It would cost about $60 a month to have our big screen TV hooked to the cable. We talked about having the parties at the homes of congregation members. Maybe more than one home per game? Send me your thoughts on this subject as we are going to study it a little more.
I led a discussion on how North Shore Bible Church and the Men’s Group can help fire victims in our community. I have meet with the folks at Chelan Valley Hope and they are very excited about our participation. I sent around a signup sheet for those that thought they could help. We will talk about our plan at next Sunday’s service.
Last on the agenda was North Shore’s partnership with the Manson Summer Nights Music Series. There WILL be a concert this coming Sunday starting at 6:30. We hope to have the concert in Leffler Field but if there is too much smoke the concert with be in the gym at North Shore. Both entertainers want to make the event a fundraiser for Chelan Valley Hope and the fire victims. We will sell tickets to the concert on Sunday before and after the service. Tickets at $10 and children under 12 are free. For each ticket we sell North Shore will receive $5. We hope you plan to attend and asked your neighbors, friends, family and co-workers.
We then launched into our question for the night. ”What qualities do you admire I other people and who are you heroes”? Most of us admired many of the same positive qualities and there were some super stories about heroes. We ended right on time at 7:30. I thank all those in attendance and appreciate everyone’s help in cleaning up.
