Sewing: The countdown to the fall rally has begun. I’m looking forward to seeing all my sewing buddies.The ladies at FBC Shelbina have been diligently making twin size quilts this summer for the Shiloh Christian Children’s Ranch. I am proud to announce that while there, Mary Lou Hulsebus earned her MPCM (master pillow case maker) degree and she has offered to use her expertise to make pillow cases to go with our donation quilts. If you have extra fabric that matches a quilt you are planning to make, please bring it for Lou. The fabric requirements are: 27” by width of fabric (wof) for the case; 9” by wof for the cuff 3”; by wof for the flange.  If you have any questions, call or text me at 417-846-3120.  Linda Thomas

Woodworking: Here it is almost time for more sawdust and fun. We will be putting wheels on cars and trucks this time. Also, we will be making bird houses to sell if there’s interest. Those we don’t sell can be put up around the camp. Bring your ideas, sanders and band saws. We will start slow and then taper off!! Ha. Call me if you have any questions.   Roger Jeffries (573-099-4448)

Refreshments: Well, friends, it is about that time again – the fall COM rally. The foods committee is looking forward to seeing you at Pulaski County and is already starting to gear up for the event.  On Tuesday morning we will again serve sausage and biscuits. If you are new, you need to know to get there early because we have lots of people who LOVE this breakfast. Coffee and hot water will be available early every morning. We ask you to bring your own cups. There will be a few cups available for those who need them. Our guys, and some gals like to gather over a cup of coffee and talk before going off to chapel and work. At this point we are still planning on serving just mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks. The camp usually serves the evening meals. Don't forget to bring some plates and utensils for each family member just in case they are needed, which they usually aren't.  As usual, we will be looking forward to receiving your culinary donations. We like to have a variety of homemade candy, cookies, breads, brownies, etc. We also appreciate receiving fruits like apples, peaches, bananas and grapes (or any other fresh fruits.) Please bring the donations to the kitchen when one of the committee members is around or on Monday and sign our donation sheets. (We use these in case we have questions about ingredients.) On the breads and cookies, we need to know if they contain nuts and what kind of nuts and what kind of bread. Labels help. If you use Splenda in your preparation, we also need to know because we have a few people who are highly allergic to it. We also like to know if you would like your container(s) returned. A neat trick one of  the ladies from my church uses is to attach one of those return mailing labels to each one of her containers. We try to use labeled containers first so that we can get them back to you in case you are leaving early.  We also appreciate other snack donations. Chips, salsa, eggs, vegetables, cheeses, crackers - we use them all. We like to see if we can creatively use everything that is donated and accept most challenges. (On one occasion we even made watercress salad, a first for me!) We are always open to suggestions for new snack ideas and recipes. If anyone wants to make a special treat, please let Cheryl and/or Pat know and we will line up help and ingredients.   See you next month!  Cheryl Rohrbach

Music: Anyone who wants to do special music during the rally, please come prepared. No need to call ahead. Check with Gary Morrow when you arrive.

Love Packages: Tom and Sue Wright will be receiving materials for Love Packages this rally. Bring any used literature and Bibles for redistribution. If you have any questions, call Tom (870-974-3484).

Ronald McDonald House: Hank and Liz Nash collect tabs from aluminum for this ministry. Bring any you may have and give to them.
