will once again be selling this year's crop of Georgia pecans.
Pound packages of pieces will sell for $10 and halves will
sell for $11; we will need everyone's help in buying and
selling. As a reminder, ECW uses money we make to buy coffee,
kitchen supplies and other things in support of St Paul's.
Most recently we have paid for updates to the nursery. We
expect the pecans to arrive before Thanksgiving to be available
for holiday baking.
Harvest for the Hungry
Community Cupboard is a year-round effort by ACMI and the
Southwest Community Action Group, Inc. to help feed families
in the Altus area. Since the beginning of 2014, 1,783 baskets
have been handed out by the Community Cupboard, feeding
over 2,868 adults and 1,785 children. Generous and caring
people donated 12,000 items in the 2013 Harvest for the
Hungry drive. Please help us reach 15,000 this year! We
are asking you to fill the bags provided with non-perishable
food items to restock the Community Cupboard which is located
at Southwest Community Action Group, Inc. (900 S. Carver
following items are urgently needed:
Canned meat – soup – canned vegetables –
canned fruit – dried beans – dried peas –

will be distributed to every house in Altus on the 1st and
2nd of November.
Please place your filled bags by your front door no later
then 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 8th, and we will come
by to pick up your kind donation. If your house is missed,
call 482-5040 on Monday, the 10th and we will come and pick
up your filled sack(s).
Following worship service, we have a wonderful time of fellowship
with our friends and a great opportunity to greet visitors.
A special thanks to all who make this happen by volunteering
to serve as coffee hostess. There is a sign-up sheet in
the parish hall every month giving you the opportunity to
serve. Coffee is always served. The snack can be a slice
of cake, cookies, sandwiches, chip and dip, crackers and
cheese, etc—and recently root beer floats were a big
hit. This was never intended to be an entire meal, just
a snack; some wish to serve more and that is fine. That
is their gift to you, so just say “thanks.”
If you are not able to serve, you might consider buying
coffee, creamer, sugar, small plates, cups, napkins etc.
Please join us each Sunday for this fellowship. If you have
questions, feel free to ask one of the ECW officers: Paula,
Bobbie, Joyce or Carol.
The vestry meets at 7:00 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each
month. Meetings are open to all members of St. Paul’s.
Please visit our Facebook site and become
a Fan. If you are a Facebook user with your own page you
may want to check your privacy settings. I recommend you
set them to Friends only. (Jon Kidwell)
