Church Notebook: Celebrate fall with harvest festivals Friday

Family-friendly fun at local churches offers safe alternative to trick-or-treating  

It’s hard to believe, but we only have five weeks left to get our shoeboxes filled and ready to send off to Samaritan’s Purse. It’s my favorite charity — but do you know what else they do?

In addition to the Operation Christmas Child program, they fund clean water and medical projects that provide specialized surgeries for children. They are most often the first ones on the ground at the site of any disaster, and their newest program takes place in Alaska, helping the families of our wounded warriors.

Spooks and spiders on haunting tour

Don your costume for Halloween-theme tours at Oregon Caves starting Sunday 

Oregon Caves National Monument will celebrate Halloween by offering haunted candlelit tours once daily starting Sunday.

The tour will feature spooky stories of local history and a walk among the bats and the spiders. Folks are also encouraged to wear costumes as long as the fabric and makeup are not at risk of touching or coming off in the cave; this includes trailing fabric, capes, fake tails and glitter.

Farmers Market ends soon

The Farmers Market has experienced record attendance this year, featuring an average of 58 vendors per week and, at the height of summer, drawing as many as 350 people an hour, says Ron Phillips.

Through service, understanding

Students at Foursquare Christian School hope to provide some basic comforts to those who often don’t have a roof over their head, and the school is asking for the community’s help.

High school needs your help by Friday

Del Norte High School has a chance to win $25,000 — possibly even $100,000 — in grants through a promotion sponsored by State Farm, but the school needs the community’s help.

People 14 and up are asked to visit www.celebratemydrive.com and pledge to be safe drivers. The more folks who take the pledge, the better Del Norte’s chances are, according to local State Farm agent Mary Dorman. The deadline is Friday.

Thanks to those who helped with homecoming

On behalf of the leadership students at Del Norte High School, I would like to thank several local business and community members for their support during Football Homecoming: Joe Gregorio and his team at Hertz, Two Guys, Schnacker’s General Hauling, Crescent Hay and Feed, Kevin Hartwick, Jenny Young, and Jeff VanPelt. Without their support of both time and resources Homecoming would not have been possible.

As it heads into its fourth Food Day celebration next week, the Community Food Council has issued a challenge: How well can you and your family eat on $5 per person per day? 

Focusing on food insecurity this year, the Community Food Council will host showings of the documentary “A Place at the Table” throughout the county on Friday. There will be food workshops on topics ranging from food budgeting and menu planning to Crock-Pot cooking on Saturday as well as a chance for adults to sample food from local restaurants.
