1) Huge thanks to Phil and Colleen Kelly for hosting a great Newcomer’s Dinner last Saturday! It was a super-fun evening with great food and conversation. And WELCOME to all our new members, we are so glad that you are here!!
2) Camp Canterbury will be here before we know it! All youth entering grades 4-12 in the fall are eligible to attend. As you know, I am a huge believer in this diocesan camp, and know it to be an important, powerful, and formative complement to our regular parish youth programming. I strongly encourage every parent and youth in this parish to consider making it to Camp Canterbury this summer. Registration is now open, Here is a link to the page https://campcanterbury.episcopal-ne.org
3) Speaking of Camp Canterbury — we will again be using our van to transport kids and counselors to and from. Right now we have one adult counselor from the parish to drive. We need another adult to volunteer to drive, who may or may not be also interested in helping at camp. In other words, we need one volunteer to drive to Fremont, Neb., with Trudy and the kids in the van on Monday, July 22nd, returning Friday, July 26. Options for your week — a) help at camp; b) visit relatives in the eastern part of the state, c) fly to Vegas out of Omaha on Tuesday, win a million dollars, and fly back Thursday. I don’t know, there may be other options :) The point is, we need one more adult volunteer to ride in the van. Might God be calling you to serve in this way?
Happy Birthday to:
May 12 Lisa Brenner, Cindy Dickinson

The ECW’s Mother's Day Brunch was lovely. Thank you to the ECW members for organizing it. Barb Manasek's prayer was especially beautiful, and The Fortis Boys choir, under the direction of Scott and Alyssa Harvey, was delightful. Thank you for a beautiful event.
