Film Screening: A Place at the Table Friday November 15th

Trinity Lutheran Church Fireside Room - 6:15 pm Community Dinner served at 5:30 pm - free and open to all!

50 MILLION AMERICANS That’s how many people in one of the wealthiest nations on the planet don’t know where their next meal is coming from. And one in four are children. The U.S. does have the means to provide nutritional and affordable food for all Americans. How is it possible for a nation with so much food to have so much hunger? Optional discussion following the film screening with information on advocacy and action. This event is sponsored by Trinity Lutheran Church Feeding Ministry and PLU Center for Community Engagement and Service. Kicking off a week of events for learning and action: Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week - November 18-23. More info: www.plu.edu/service

“A Place at the Table” is a powerful documentary examining hunger through the lens of personal story combined with facts and insights from nutritionists, economists and activists.

Winter Driving Safety Tips The window for fall driving is drawing to a rapid close, but our vehicles are still in for a long cold and rainy season. Commutes, family gatherings, traffic jams while holiday shopping remind us that drivers should make preparations to ensure they are not left out in the cold. Please review this important list now while you are safe and warm:  INSPECT VEHICLE TIRES. Both tread and proper inflation are important. Follow manufacturer’s inflation recommendations.  Take a walk around your car, CHECK TO MAKE SURE ALL LIGHTS ARE FUNCTIONING, especially headlights and brake lights.  INSPECT WINDSHIELD WIPERS both front and rear (if applicable). Warning signs include streaking or skipping.  Under the hood, INSPECT BELTS AND HOSES for dryness and cracking.  CHECK YOUR CAR BATTERY. They can lose half of their cranking power in extremely cold temperatures. Inspect your battery connections and test the strength of your battery.  Fluids are under stress in these extreme conditions; CHECK FLUID LEVELS of motor oil, transmission fluid, and windshield washer fluid.

Many major auto shops offer free inspections of these critical functions. Take advantage of these offers and comparison shop because prices do vary widely. Preventative maintenance now will go a long way to make this winter season a happy memory. Next month we will provide tips on what to stock in the trunk should your car break down.

From your 2013-2014 Safety Committee!
