Food Pantry Collection April 2  The monthly food pantry collection will be held on April 2 and will benefit the Hopkinton Food Pantry at Project Just Because.  Requested items are:  any condiments, salad dressing (Italian and Ranch), pickles, canned mushrooms, salsa, bread crumbs, Hamburger Helper, sloppy joe mix, Spam, canned hash, Beefaroni, taco kits, oatmeal packets, Frosted Flakes, raisins, bottle juice (plastic please) crackers, Goldfish, popcorn, Fluff, jelly (not in glass jars, please) and dish detergent and sponges.

Easter Flowers for Sale Help beautify the altar on Easter Sunday by purchasing tulips, daffodils, or lilies for $10 apiece.  The flowers, which can be designated as being in memory or thanksgiving for someone special, may be taken home after the Easter service or left for shut-ins.  Please fill out a form and return to Jane Desilets no later than April 9.

Pansies for Pancreatic Cancer Alliance Bob Snyder will deliver pansies to St. Paul’s Chuch on Easter Sunday this year, using the same basic process that we have used in past years.  The pansies are in 5-inch pots, ready to go straight into the ground or into your window planters. (These plants thrive on the cold weather of April by the way.) Each pot is $5.00. Profits from this sale go directly to the Pancreatic Cancer Alliance (PCA). The PCA raises funds to support Pancreatic Cancer Research at UMass Medical in Worcester. This group has zero administrative costs so each $5 donation is split between product cost to the nursery and the PCA research fund. Please let Bob know how many pots you’d like. You can pay him on Easter Sunday or before or after by cash or check. Make checks out to the “Pancreatic Cancer Alliance.”  If you don’t get your order in to Bob, then any surplus in his order will still be available on Easter Sunday. If Easter Sunday doesn’t work for your pick up, other pick up arrangements will be made.  Bob’s email is bobsnyder21961@gmail.com. His home phone is 508-435-4528 where you can leave a message.
