October 27 from 4-6 pm. Get out your favorite western attire and enjoy a good old fashion cowboy cookout. We will be grilling hot dogs and enjoying chili. Children can ride a pony, play games, sing-a-long with Cowboy Ken. All generations will have a blast at our Cake Walk.
Entries for the Chili Cook-off should be delivered to Page Hall between 5:30 and 6:00 pm. Cakes for the cakewalk can be placed in the Page Hall kitchen refrigerator after service. All proceeds from the Fall Festival will be donated to provide scholarships for trip fees and housing for our Rocky Point Mission. Through Amore, Orangewood Volunteers have built over 50 homes. We are pleased to have the opportunity to support this work.
Orangewood’s SAGES fellowship group will be holding its first luncheon meeting this coming Tuesday, October 8 in Page Hall. Members and guests will arrive between 11 and 11:30, with lunch served at 11:30. We are pleased to announce that our lunch cost remains $4.00/person for the eighth consecutive year! Plan now to join us for this first meeting of our 2019-2020 program year. Our theme is “Birds of a Feather Flock Together” so this might give you an idea of the colorful table decorations!

Our Honduras Team will be leaving in January. It is time to start collecting the essentials for their medical clinic. We would like to be very specific in what we need. We can only take so much and we also want it to be in the right form to make it easy for us to distribute. So in October we are collecting Pain and Cold medicine. There is a list in the October Plumbline. You can bring your donations to the patio on the weekend.
