MONEY, MONEY, MONEY...
We need a little money for books, CD’s etc. We decided the easiest was to put a donation jar out at our meetings and we can all drop some $$$ into the pot.
The money from the sale of books to our members will be put back into the pot to create a fund to assure we will always have some on hand for sale or loan.
Newsletter ideas or articles should be given to Duane

Subject: Re: coffeehouse
Thank YOU so much! The group did a beautiful job! I've heard from several people today about how much they enjoyed the opportunity to hear and participate in sacred harp singing. Please pass along our appreciation to the Mount Union group. I hope we'll see you on November 21 for another coffeehouse‑‑this time just come and relax!
Linda forwarded the message to us with comments.
I'll pass this on to the group. You did do a great job, from my perspective too. But most of all, it appeared to me that you all had a good time doing it! God be praised!
And... the singing brought $50. into our loaner book fund, which was at 0 again ‑ I had just added another $2.50 the previous week and ordered a new box of books. I was really happy that we could do that, and I think it was
so helpful to be able to put the 14 loaner books in the hands of the people Friday night!
Thank you all for your loyalty and support of our little group. The fact that we have a little group in this area is in itself a miracle! A wonder! And, I think that we're growing just as solid as the groups in State College
and Erie, which have the university crowd to draw from.
Love and blessings to you all!
