ASU Campus Ministry Help
ASU Campus Ministry Help Needed! Tuesday, November 14, 2017
Holy Cross is scheduled to provide dinner for 30 members of our Campus Ministry Group at ASU on Tuesday, November 13. The Vestry provided a much appreciated fried chicken dinner in October. I would be most grateful if several members of our parish would volunteer to prepare the November meal. I was thinking that an early Thanksgiving feast might be in order. Perhaps ham, sweet potatoes of some description, green salad, cornbread, and, of course, yummy desserts. Please contact me at 252.230.0774 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you are willing to help. I will deliver the food to 3rd Place for you. Thank you! Kim Gauss, Campus Ministry Liaison.
