Saturday, 6/16/18, is Quiche Day at St. Mary's. Help is needed to help put together the ninety + quiches that have been ordered. There is a lot to do and any time you can spare throughout the day will be most appreciated. If you volunteered to provide ingredients, they need to be at the church by the time the party starts at 8:30 AM. There's still time to be on the receiving end of these delicious treats, so let Gail Voorhees or Dawn Kezer know if you want to place an order.
Sunday, 6/17/18, we say farewell to Siu Hei Lee and Keith and Marilyn Sadowski. Bring a favorite treat to share for our special good-bye potluck/hospitality after worship. While Keith and Marilyn may still be with us for a couple more weeks, Siu Hei will definitely be saying farewell. We will miss him - he has given us so much beautiful music over the past year, and his leadership and enthusiasm will stay with us long after he has gone.
The following Sunday, 6/24/18, the Women of St. Mary's will enjoy a lovely tea at the home of Debbie Benson at 2:00 PM. Get out your beautiful hats and enjoy an afternoon at Debbie's. She has the most beautiful yard, and you can imagine you are in an English garden. Bring your own special teacup and saucer and a treat to share, either sweet or savory. Don't worry there will be extra teacups and even extra hats in case those particular items are things you don't happen to have on hand! The important thing is for you to come and enjoy a lovely afternoon!
We want to start calling the St. Mary's Bluegrass Festival, the 9th Annual Ramona Bluegrass Festival. Thank you, Rob Lewallen for bringing this to our attention. I think you are correct that this would lend more credence and weight to the event and would get the point across that it is a well-established annual event. The first was held in 2010 and they've been held every year since then. If we can pull this off, it will be St. Mary's privilege to bring it to Ramona in 2018. We're looking for a date in the next week to call a general meeting of all those interested in playing a part. Stay tuned!!

NEWS FROM THE LANDSCAPE COMMITTEE!
The landscaping committee met on Tues. with a special guest courtesy of our own Ramona Garden Club. Ramona Valencia is a Master Gardener and was very helpful in giving us ideas and suggestions. The even better news is that she has volunteered to come to our church on Saturday morning from 9 am to noon to stage the plants (set them out in locations where we can begin planting). She will also give a planting demonstration, so please try to stop by for a short time. That way when we all have a bit of free time we can plant at our leisure.
I also found out that Susie Sheely is willing to donate rocks which will help us with this project and the Labyrinth. They can be picked up from her at any time. Her phone number is 760-789-0656, and she lives on Spangler Peak in the Estates.If anyone else has plants or other supplies to donate please let us know. As the saying goes, many hands make light work!
