MARK YOUR CALENDARS
Hot August Nights – Cocktail Party on the Patio Friday, August 18, 7-10 pm
So, you are looking out into your backyard in the sweltering heat. August is the worst. If you could only be in Antigua, or the Cayman Islands, but you can’t… Are you going to let that stop you from enjoying Westchester at its best, overlooking beautiful Long Island Sound, under the maples, on the patio? Close your eyes and imagine yourself in St. Tropez à la St. John’s. Yes, it’s a dream come true. Come and meet fellow beach bums who are part of St. John’s – wear your wildest shirts/T-shirts and enjoy a beverage and tasty hors d’oeuvres.
BYOB of wine or beer plus an appetizer to share. We will supply the cups, plates, napkins, silverware, ice, etc. For reservations or questions RSVP Dorothea Ferri at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 914-777-0910.

“God’s Work. Our Hands.” BBQ for Seniors September 10 @ noon
The last two years over 70 seniors from our community enjoyed a picnic BBQ on our lawn. It has been a great success and the seniors had a really great time it, so we are doing it again this September on the occasion of the ELCA “God’s Work. Our Hands.” Sunday. All seniors are invited – and everybody who is not a senior is invited to volunteer to help with this wonderful event.
We need volunteers
- who will BBQ hot dogs, hamburgers, and chicken;
- who will donate side dishes like potato, pasta or other salads, desserts, etc.;
- who will set up, serve, and clean up.
If you can help, please email Marc Schlueter now at email@example.com. Thank you!
Book Club Next meeting: September 13 @ 7 pm
Thanks to the great participation in June and July the summer book club is turning into a book club! It seems we all enjoyed reading Trevor Noah’s book and we had a very good discussion. Our next book will be our first fiction and an older one – Graham Greene’s “The Power and the Glory”, “a violent, raw novel about suffering, strained faith, and ultimate redemption”.
Rally Day Is on September 17
We will again have two services at 8.15 am and 10.30 am. Sunday School/Confirma-tion Class will also start meeting again at 9.10 am as well as Adult Forum.
Give Blood at St. John’s On September 23
We are excited to host a blood drive on September 23. To continue holding blood drives, we need to have at least 25 donors. Please participate and don’t go to other places to give blood – so we don’t lose this opportunity to serve our community.
