LAST month's newsletter. I think I accidentally posted it to my OWN blog. lol

NEWS on the McKnight house:
If you haven’t heard the news, we will be moving into the McNight house (hopefully) by January. Mark is having discussions with Corey and Nate to finalize some plans.  We might not be able to do ALL the work this fall, but will do things as we are able on the upgrades to the house. Here’s the building if you haven’t seen it.

Greenway Arts Festival Thank you to everyone who helped with this event. Even though it rained heavily in the afternoon, we made about $125 for the booth.
Girl Scout Lock-in was a lot of fun, but hard work. Thank you to Gloria and Reba, who gave up Sat night (til 1 am!!) to help the girls paint banners. We had about 160 girls!
