Women’s Group - Luncheon and Tag Sale
The United Church Women will have their annual tag sale and luncheon on
Saturday, August 24. Please look for items to donate to the tag
sale. A sign-up sheet is in the front hall for help with both of these

Congregational Singing Practice
Occasional choir singers and members of the congregation who would like
to "go over" the music for a Sunday service should come up to the organ before
9:50 AM, with hymnal in hand, when Ed is on duty. However, he is usually
on New Hampshire organ benches on the third Sunday of each month.
Drivers for The Blind Needed
The Vermont Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (VABVI) has an
immediate URGENT need for volunteer drivers in and around the Ludlow area to get
people where they need to go.
Clients of VABVI cannot drive which causes a serious problem for them,
forcing them to rely on others. They need to put food on their tables, get
to vital medical appointments and run important errands. The Volunteer
Pool in the Ludlow area is very low and they greatly need help so clients can
meet their daily living needs. The VABVI’s Volunteer Transportation Program provides
free personalized transportation services.
Come and be a part of something wonderful by joining our team of
inspirational volunteers. Volunteer Drivers work on an “as needed” basis and are
free to accept or decline any trip to suit their own schedules. Volunteer
as much or as little as you have time for.
Drivers receive mileage reimbursements for the use of their cars. If
you can help or would like more information, call toll free at
1-877-350-8840. VABVI is a non-profit organization providing a wide array of services to
Vermonters with vision loss.
