Operation Christmas Child Boxes Due Tomorrow

OPeration Christmas Child

Several weeks back each clubber was sent home with a shoebox to fill for Operation Christmas Child.  Tomorrow night the boxes are due back so we can get them sent off to kids in foreign countries so they can have an excited holiday season.

Please get your boxes as full as you can, label them, and provide the shipping and return them to club tomorrow night, November 16th.

Our clubbers will also be helping the relay center at club pack additional boxes.

The last two years the Awana clubbers have contributed over 100 boxes each year.  Let’s top that mark tomorrow!

Thanks for your participation & support!

REMINDER: The Awana Grand Prix this weekend. Friday night (tomorrow) is car check-in from 6-8p. All cars MUST be checked in on Friday night, NO car check-in will be accepted on Saturday morning.

On Saturday, we are asking everyone to arrive at 8:00am so we can start the racing around 8:30a. We have 90 cars to race this year, which is up from 67 last year, so it will be a long day. Awards will be given at the end of the day.

NOTE: There is a funeral at the church on Saturday so the staff has asked that all vehicles associated with the Grand Prix, park in the big lot behind the Family Life Center to leave all the parking slots for the funeral.

Thanks so much. See you tomorrow night and Saturday.
