June Food Drive - Suggested donations for June include beef stew, ravioli, chili, tuna and other canned meat and vegetables. As always, other items are also welcome. Thank you very much for your continued support of our food drive for the people served by the Christian Caring Center.

Can you read a foreign language? If so, we invite you to take a special part in next week's celebration of the Day of Pentecost by participating in the traditional reading of Luke's description of the first Christian Pentecost using as many different languages as possible. Readings are normally quite short and your script will be provided to you in advance. Don't miss your chance to volunteer today! See sign-up sheet on the narthex table or speak to Deacon Helen. Thank you.

Caps & Laps are selling a homemade herb dip to benefit Vacation Bible School. Each dip sells for $3 and comes with the herbs and instructions. An envelope is provided for the donation on the long table.

Thank you to everyone who helped to make St. Peter's Rummage Sale a great success once again, despite the rain. All proceeds from the Rummage Sale support our outreach mission work, including our Breakfast Program on the 2nd Sunday of each month at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Camden, where we bring clothes and provide, cook and serve breakfast to the homeless and the hungry.  Please join me in thanking the following people: Joe and Sue Santangelo for setting up Williams Hall. Joe you are the table maestro ! Our sorting helpers who lifted, folded, and sorted all the donated items - Maureen Joos, Steve Haines, Michelle Scarpulla, Lisa Minerd, Andrew LaRue, Dan LaRue, John Colaianni. Our event helpers who assisted shoppers, priced items, and helped during checkout - Jen Buzby, Ann Charles, Beckie McCammitt, Barbara LaRue, Father Don, John Colaianni. Our great team of volunteers who helped to clean up and deliver the leftover items to Goodwill - Betty Jones, Ben Jones, Roger Norris, Katiusca McEntee, Barbara LaRue, Andrew LaRue, Steve Scarpulla, Mike Scarpulla, Tiffany Myers, Jen Buzby, Beckie McCammitt, Ann Charles, Father Don, and John Colaianni. Thanks to Gena Krug for creating an excellent graphic we used to post the rummage sale online. We also thank Steve "Green Thumb" Haines who donated dozens of his beautiful hand-grown tomato plants for sale, with the proceeds also going to St. Paul's. Thank you all for helping to make this event a success. Together we raised more than $1,400.00. To put that into perspective, that money will help our volunteers to feed approximately 1200 people. After nine years, I will begin to transition this event to another parishioner. I will gladly co-chair the event next year to ensure a smooth transition, but new volunteers are needed to continue this event and raise money for our parish missions. It has been a pleasure serving The Lord, our Parish, and our community in this way. Danielle Colaianni
