Have you noticed changes in our community? Have you driven past the church on Sundays? Church service begins at 10:45 a.m. Don’t be late. The parking lot is full. Have you seen notices for the free Community Meal at the church on the third Saturday of each month? There are 75 to 100 community residents enjoying this time together and a great meal. The Community Food Pantry, distributed at the same time as the meal, is now serving 30 families. (We can always use any donations) On the fourth Wednesday of each month El Dorado County brings a Pediatric Immunization Clinic to our community. Held in the lodge at the church, this clinic provides free immunizations to our children. Sobriety Meetings (alcohol and drugs) are held every Tuesday at 7 p.m. The Youth Group meets every Thursday evening at 7 p.m. Planning is already underway for Vacation Bible School which is scheduled for this coming July. And how about the Ladies Christmas Dinner each year? All ladies in the community are invited. A great meal and a room full of laughing ladies, 32 this last year, played games and had a fun time. There are Bible Study Groups and Community Prayer Meetings. Some of these events have been at the church and are expanding. Others are new. Are you looking for spiritual nourishment or some great activities? Come check us out. There will be a Good Friday Service at 7 p.m. Sunday Service is at 10:45 a.m.

Please share this with your friends and neighbors.
Thank you so much.
This is a reminder because earlier this week I asked every one to consider helping us. Please do what you can do. Share (forward) our profile, pray, give. Thank you so much in supporting us and helping our children to come home, forever home.
Bill and I are preparing to adopt internationally. We have completed the ministry approval, the homestudy, and the first of the homeland security/immigration approvals. We are waiting for the ministry that runs the orphanage to match us with child/children. We are approved for 1-3 children between 6 months and 6 years. This is a costly venture because each organization and government must be paid as well as the eventual travel expenses to pick up our children. So…
We have a profile at Adopt Together. This is a way that family, friends and interested people may financially support our adoption. We have been offered a matching grant of up to a thousand dollars for the money that goes into our account with them during the first seven days of March.
(From the folks who run the Grizzly Flats Facebook Page – see menu to the right) The El Dorado Department of Transportation is going to be installing two gates on Logan’s grade and will be closing them during severe weather conditions. The lower gate will be installed just above the new turn around. Apparently this has been initiated due to the fact that during one 30-day period last year one tow company was up here by 85 times.
We have another Hero coming home for a visit!! Douglas Harris received serious injuries in Afghanistan while serving and has a long way to go. We would like to give him the Hero’s welcome he deserves. Please come out to show your gratitude and thanks to one of our community’s own. He is a Union Mine graduate and well known in the county. The original celebration for today Wednesday November 31st has been delayed due to the east coast storm delaying his return. The welcoming celebration now be at the Veteran’s Hall in Placerville at 130 Placerville Drive right next to the fair grounds on Friday November 2, 2012 at 1:00 PM. The celebration open to EVERYONE with refreshments served until around 3pm.
