We have 38 men coming total, 2 men for only one night.  I have a campfire scheduled for Saturday night and boxed lunches for Sunday.  No allergies or special dietary request.
The check in information will be in SNW Lodge, we need all men to sign in and get a car tag for their cars.
Bring a jacket and rain jacket.
Justice Knox: positive, organized, at least a 1,000 people,
Men’s retreat August 16-18. Talk to John, Les, or Bert. Register on line. All 3 bishops will be present
Roy told us about The Wicked Book that said “Thou shalt commit adultry.”
Roy also told us about a book that addresses white supremacy in America. He recommended we use it for a series of programs and he volunteered to buy it for everyone at $.10 per copy.
Terry said we should thank Ron Wells for contacting the Bishop and getting the chapters to read for the retreat.
Curtis Tipton and I cleaned out Sister Anna’s shed last Saturday and gave appropriate items to Community Chest, per instructions from Monty.  Remaining items in the shed are several, small screen TV sets, VHS player, two tomato cages, and what looks like a swamp cooler air conditioning unit.  Operating status of the electronic items is questionable.
Aron thanked those who volunteered to assist in the Acolyte Festival, May 18.
Dave Irvin said he has additional copies of the church budget if anyone needs a copy.
Program: Karen Pershing, The Drug Crisis
Program next week: Sara Scott Wingo
Breakfast next week: Gary Harper

For safe travel to and from the retreat
And all those who are in sorrow, need, sickness, or any other adversity.
And for all the blessings of this life.
We closed with the Prayer of St Andrews
