On behalf of FTK Team #1 and her co-leader, Carole Haskell, Patti Brotherton has sent in the following report on the meal served on May 20th at the Boys and Girls Club. The event was hugely successful.  A delicious and healthy meal was served to 204 children. Forty (40) of them came back for second helpings!! Over 75 volunteer-hours were recorded by the Team 1 shoppers, cooks, transporters, servers, and clean-up crew. Everyone had a great time and the KIDS GOT FED!! To join the FTK effort—you won't regret it—contact either Patti or Carole (see Realm for contact information). Team 1's next meal is scheduled for June 17th. Come on and join us. You know you want to.

Judi Frame just sent in the following report and photo.

"Here are some of the goodies collected so far for Henderson county’s returning migrant workers—pillows, towels, hats with brims, work pants, work gloves, and long-sleeved shirts.  All donated food is being delivered to The Storehouse this week.  Thank you, St James!"


Join us for the return of EYC!  

First, once a month, our youth (rising 6th to 12th grades) will gather for an evening of food, fun, and faith!  We’re kicking things off in style as we take the church bus to Tarheel Lanes for bowling on Sunday, May 22 at 5 p.m.  Please bring $12 to bowl, plus additional money for snacks.  RSVP by May 20 so that we can reserve the lanes.  And while the youth are bowling, parents and guardians are invited to walk over to the BBQ Food Truck at Southern App Brewery with Fr. David.

Second, the St. James EYC will head for the Asheville Tourists game on Friday, June 3!  Celebrate the end of school with a Tourist game and FIREWORKS!  Tickets are free, thanks to a generous donor, but please RSVP by May 25 to ensure we have a ticket for you.  Bring money for dinner at the ballpark.  We will depart the St. James parking lot on the church bus at 4:30 p.m. for a 6:05 p.m. game. Parents are welcome to join us.
