Pandemic Progress
Covid attendance limits, distancing, and public mask requirements have been lifted by the County and State officials.  We encourage everyone to return to in-person Sunday attendance as soon as you are able, and we continue to encourage common-sense measures to keep everyone healthy -- including wearing a mask if that makes you more comfortable.  The air conditioner is working to keep us as cool as we can be!

Seeking Auction Donations
Moses Lake Grocery Outlet is wroking on the annual Independence from Hunger Food Drive. The online auction is live now and will end at noon on July 6th. 100% of all money raised will be donated to their Independence for Hunger Community Partner Care Sacks. All donations stay local to help provide sack lunches to those experiencing food insecurities. The goal this year is to raise $10,000. That is a HUGE goal and cannot be done without the support of our community. "Thank you in advance." (--from Kris E., ML Grocery Outlet) Update: Nearly 1/2 way to the goal! Donate $5 in the store and receive a $5.00 coupon -- win-win!

Seeking Rodeo Anthem Singers
Contact Mike Harris if you or someone you know would be interested/willing to sing the National Anthem for one evening of the 2021 Grant County Rodeo.  I believe he said there are 5 opportunities.  Need not be a professional or perfect singer but ability to carry a tune helps :)
