HOUSE NEWS: Advent party and Art for All Sale on Saturday! Pizza Extravaganza V coming up!
ADVENT PARTY AND ART FOR ALL SALE: This Saturday, December 8th, we’ll be hosting our Advent party at the Green House to thank everyone and celebrate the season with all of our friends. We hope you can join us! Everyone is invited to get together to celebrate the end of another semester, and we’ll have all of the items which were made at Art for All on display and available for sale for folks who want to pick up a little gift if they see something they like. We ask folks who come to bring some food or drink to share if possible! The party will begin at 4pm and go through until 8pm. Hope you’ll come and join us!
HONORING THE CHYNOWETHS AND ALPHONSO CLARKE: At the Advent party on Saturday, we’ll be honoring Gloria and Dave Chynoweth and Alphonso Clarke for all that they have done for the GCW over the years. Gloria and Dave’s presence, support and influence have been there from the beginning and we’re so gratefu for all that they are and all that they have done to make the GCW what it is today. Al was one of our early community members and helped to hold the house together during a very difficult time, the years after Kelli’s son Ben was diagnosed with leukemia. Al was an anchor during that time and we’re forever grateful for his presence and leadership during that time. Come to the party and show your thanks for Gloria and Dave and Al!
ROUNDTABLE ON THURSDAY: On Thursday at 6:30pm, we’ll have a low-key Roundtable and Potluck Dinner. It will be the last Roundtable of the semester, and we’ll begin our meal with a short Advent prayer and then just enjoy one another’s company over dinner. Come and join us if you can!
GET READY FOR NEXT WEEK’S PIZZA EXTRAVAGANZA V: It has become a tradition that we do homemade (or locally-made) pizzas for the last cafe of each semester. The last cafe for this semester will be Wednesday, December 12th, from 12:30-3:30pm. We typically serve between 20-25 pizzas, so we need A LOT of help securing enough pizza pies. If you can make a homemade pizza (or 2 or 3!) or purchase a pizza (or 2 or more!) from one of our local pizzerias (Big Lou’s, Satchel’s, Leonardo’s, et. al.), please let us know. We’ve started the list and we would love to add your name to it! So RSVP if you can bring a pie for next Wednesday’s cafe, December 12!
