TODAY IS JANUARY's COMMUNITY FOOD PANTRY SUNDAY when Friends are invited to donate a staple food item to help area families who struggle to afford adequate nutrition.  If you forgot but would like to give, you may drop a dollar or two into the Quaker Oats tin on the southwest parlor table.  Another way to help is to DONATE PAPERBACK BOOKS for the Shalom Center waiting room rack.  You may bring books to the church office, or hand them to Bettye Monks, Ellene Kritsch, or Nita Burton.

BELIZE TRIP PARTICIPATION:  The USFW is paying the checked baggage fee to enable Al Groth and Shane Hall to take tools to Belize this week for their work.  To fill up the suitcases, the ladies also will send school supplies for the Friends School students.  If you have markers/sharpies, cheap calculators, whiteout, pencils, black or colored ink pens, colored pencils, folders (not red), or bulletin board decorations to send, please put them into the special basket in the parlor today, or speak with Pam Ferguson about getting your donation to the travelers in time for their trip.

2017 CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTION SUMMARIES for Friends' tax return purposes were distributed last Sunday.  A few remain at the back table in the sanctuary today.  If you do not receive an expected report or have questions about yours, please speak with church treasurer Marcia Holliger.  Thank you for your faithful stewardship!
