Sunday, June 17th - Clothing Corral
Sunday, June 17th, is the last day of our Clothing Corral drive. As a reminder, here’s what we need:
Clothing-- “Every day” and “dress up” clothes for Sunday. Items like shorts, t-shirts, underwear, and socks are good for boys. Older boys tend to wear long pants. Girls wear t-shirts, blouses, skirts, shorts, dresses, underwear and socks. Vary sizes from infant to teen.
Used clothes--Please make sure they are in good condition. They will be gifts.
New clothing--Big dollar clothing is not needed. Shop the sales and clearance racks.
Don’t worry about the latest fashion items.
Watch the styles and design logos--We’re working in a conservative environment.
Footwear--gently used and new. From infant to teen. Popular types are sneakers, sandals, and “crocs.”
Shipping—It costs $2 per pound to ship from GBC to the orphanage--$140 for a 70 lbs box.
Contributions have been great. Let’s end strong!
Monday, July 16th--Mike G Living Water Golf Tournament
Monday, July 16th, is the Mike G Living Water Golf Tournament. Held in memory of Mike Giannattasio, a former elder at GBC, this grand event raises funds for GBC’s water projects in Haiti. It’s held at the Cedar Ridge Golf Course in East Lyme and it starts at 9am--come at 8:15am for coffee and munchies. The $80 fee includes greens fees and lunch at Flanders Fish Market. Golfing is “best ball.” It’s a blast, even for those with burgeoning golf skills.
Not a golfer? Join us for lunch at Flanders Fish Market at 11:45, $30.
The golfing awards are abundant. The food is amazing. The basket raffle items are prolific, and, last year the tournament raised $6000. Let’s have a giant contingent from GBC this year.
