Thanks to all who helped set up and participate in the Ministry Fair 2011. Special thanks to Debbie Hartman for coordinating the event.
YOUTH CORNER What a SUCCESS!!! Our 1st Annual Pancake Breakfast/Brunch was a success only because of YOU GUYS! Thank you to all the youth and parents who came to work and especially those of you who came to eat! I hope you all got your fill. As usual we can always count on this community to pull together and “get’er done.” We would especially like to thank Dale Droll for his organization and his kitchen crew who were on top of it all. With your guidance, we may have begun training the future generation of cooks! The ministry fair looked to be just as successful. We hope to see new faces taking care of the different ministries soon. :-) I would like to thank Amy Hoffman for spearheading this year’s 1st Huddle-Up after Friday’s game. I know the students appreciate the opportunity to gather over some pizza and talk about the game among other things. Our next Huddle-Up will be on Oct. 14th. We are getting ready for our House Painting project, so be watching for an announcement. Also, check out the St. Ambrose Youth Group FB page. We have posted photo albums of various events and YOU might be there! May the Lord bless you as He has us. Peace, ~Dcn Dan and Phyllis
