Presbyterian Women: Oct Updates

  • Boxtops 4 Education: Sunday, Oct 25 is the deadline for the October mailing. Boxtop expiration dates must be 11/20 or later. Please leave in PW mailbox or basket on the mission shelves. Due to changes in the program, this probably will be the last mailing, so look for any expiring in 2021 and 2022 on products.
  • Orange Day is Sunday, Oct 25: Wear orange or an orange ribbon to show awareness of and support for those working to end exploitation of women and girls. Native American women and girls are being killed and trafficked at rates far higher than the rest of US population. On some reservations, women are ten times as likely to be murdered, and 84% have experienced physical, sexual, or psychological violence in their lifetimes. The Safe Women, Strong Nations project partners with Native women’s organizations and Indian and Alaskan Native nations to end this violence. 
  • Circle Meeting: 10:30 am Monday, Oct 19 at the home of Joan Theal. The group will discuss Lamenting Together, based on Psalm 137. Each lesson is designed to stand alone, so if someone has missed one, she will not feel behind. RSVP to Joan.
