July Food Pantry Collection July 9  This month’s food pantry collection will take place July 2 and 9, and will benefit the Hopkinton Food Pantry of Project Just Because.  Suggested donations include:   Condiments – ketchup, mustard, relish, mayonnaise; juices (no glass please) & juice boxes; baked beans, salad dressings – Italian & Ranch; pickles; salsa; Hamburger Helper, Sloppy Joe mix; Spam, canned hash; Beefaroni; oatmeal packets; Frosted Flakes; crackers; Goldfish;  Marshmallow Fluff;  jelly (no glass please); dish detergent and sponges.

Organ Fundraising Our beloved 134-year-old Hook & Hastings organ is in need of some serious repairs, so a special fundraising effort has been started to raise the $35,000 required to restore this historic instrument.  The first goal is to raise $10,000 by the end of 2017.  If you are interested in donating, please pay by check (payable to “St. Paul’s Hopkinton”) or cash – making sure to note “organ fund” on the check or envelope.  A display showing the current status of the fundraising is in the front entrance.   There is also a brochure available that features the history of the organ, the repairs needed, and details of the fundraising effort.  If you have any questions, please see Karen Scheffler.

Annual Community Picnic July 23   Be sure to mark your calendar on July 23 for our annual community picnic being held on the front lawn of St. Paul’s, which will include members of St. Paul’s, Community Covenant Church, and the Islamic Masumeen Center.   The picnic will take place after the Sunday service and there will be cultural dishes, traditional BBQ fare, and a large helping of fellowship.  Friends and neighbors – and their children –  are welcome.  Please bring lawn games and dishes and/or desserts to share.

Toilet Paper Needed  Much thanks to everyone who has donated much needed paper goods in the past! This week we need toilet tissue donated. Thank you in advance for your generosity to the community of St. Paul’s!
