October 2009



I have such fond childhood memories during this time of year... picking out pumpkins, Halloween costumes and watching football. I'm so thankful that the weather is changing and outside play time is pleasant! Now that everyone's schedules are in full swing hopefully everyone can take some time out and enjoy some time with friends and fellow moms at our October Meeting. We have a great speaker lined up, Jane Jarrell, who will present, "3 For All". Can't wait to find out how to make yummy delicious meals with 3 ingredients! We also have a fun outing to Owens farm in Richardson for our children. I am looking forward to some great photo opportunities with all the kids in the pumpkin patch. And of course our Annual "Trunk or Treat" is scheduled for October 23rd at 6pm. My kids are already excited about this fun event! It is open to our entire parish so come prepared with many treats!

I still need volunteers during the POP Discipleship Drive with representing the M.O.M.S. group at all masses Oct. 17-18 This is our time to recruit and show off our important ministry. I need 2 people per mass to carry our banner and man the information table. Thank you to Elizabeth Reynolds, Rita Cunningham and Maureen Redman who have already volunteered. Contact
megan.thornton@verizon.net with questions.

The same weekend is our parish picnic. The M.O.M.S. group is responsible for running the games for our children. This is a fun opportunity for everyone. I need more people to sign up for 1 hour shifts between 12-3. We will have teens helping at each game so all you have to do is pass out prizes and smile! Thank you to Christine Giannini, Nori Runge, Melissa Rey and Cindy Bouchard who have already volunteered.

I am so thankful for this ministry and the friends I have gained in the last 3 years. I am blessed to serve as your President. Thanks to everyone for making this a wonderful support group!
