HOUSE NEWS: Midsummer update and bake sale this weekend!

Termite tenting

Just wanted to give y’all a quick mid-sumer update and also invite you to a bake sale going on this weekend in support of the GCW!

TERMITE TENTING: As you can see from the photo above, the house was engulfed by a huge green tent for two days, thoroughly fumigated, and cleared for re-entry the week of July 9th. Many thanks to everyone who helped make it happen, including Gloria and Dave for putting me and Rudy up for 3 days and Jade and Lynn for letting us store some food in their freezer. We raised enough money to cover the fumigation with some great help from a number of individuals and a contribution from the Knights of Columbus at Holy Faith Catholic Church. Thanks all!

BAKE SALE AT ST. AUGUSTINE CHURCH THIS WEEKEND: If you’re a parishioner at St. Augustine Catholic Church and Student Center, or if you know someone who is, or even if you’re just in the neighborhood passing by–Mary Peer, GCW volunteer extraordinaire, has organized a bake sale in support of the GCW after Masses this weekend (July 28-29). So bring a couple extra dollars and purchase some homemade baked goodies (I can vouch for Mary’s baking!) after Mass on Saturday evening, Sunday morning and Sunday evening. Mary will also have some items left from the Art for All sale this past Spring in case you’d like to check that out too. Many thanks to Mary!

FALL SEMESTER AROUND THE CORNER: Our fall community members will start to move into the Green House beginning this weekend (yay Gloria and Clayton!) and we should have a full house (8 community members for the fall) by August 20. We’ll be getting things ready around the house, setting a new schedule, and making other preparations beginning August 1. We’ll start some things up the week of August 19th, with everything up and running the week after. Let us know if you’re interested in a regular volunteer gig with us this fall. We would love to have you!

Have a great rest of the summer!
