School Supply Drive

We're helping the Salvation Army collect school supplies for kids in our community! We'll be accepting donations of school supplies anytime during open hours from July 26 through August 12. Come on in and help us fill the barrel! Some especially needed items include: three-ring binders, dry erase markers, sharpies, and composition notebooks. We don't charge fines anymore, but if you've still got some old fines left on your card, we'll waive up to $10!

Our Adult Social Hour will be held outside at Five Mile Church of the Nazarene. Bring your own chair, some book titles you’ve read and loved and your stories of how you've survived the year. We’d love to hear from you!
