Hi Everyone,

We again want to extend our gratitude for your continued support, prayers and interest in this ministry to the disadvantaged throughout Camas and Washougal.  We also want to touch base with our current volunteers and interested (a.k.a. future volunteers) to remind you all of the meal this month and topics of discussion for our monthly meeting July 20th.  The next Refuel Friday is July 21 at the Washougal Community Center.  As always, please call either Mike (360.721.9902) or Michele (360.281.1125) if you have any questions.

  1. It is time to collect for our back pack school supply drive
  2. Picnic in the park in August
  3. Auction dinner – thinking October would be good!
  4. Meals for next year at Refuel – need to pick our dates
  5. Dinner suggestion for August & September
  6. Family Game night at Radiant
  7. Moving items to storage room at church and organizing it.
  8. Setting up a clothing closet at Hathaway (coordinating with Nancy at Hathaway)

Dinner for the 21st is planned as a BBQ for our friends who attend, we also will need extra volunteers to sign up the children in need of back packs, school supplies, and even clothing for the upcoming school year.

We intend to serve this as a menu: Hamburgers/buns, Hotdogs/buns, Baked Beans, Potato Salad, Macaroni Salad, Chips, Soda, water, juice, milk, coffee

We will need prep workers by about 1:30 for slicing tomatoes, Onions, Pickles, Lettuce and a grill helper for Mike 🙂

We will also need extra volunteers for the drink station, ice cream sundae station, and our share tables. I believe we need the following volunteers:

2 grillers- Mike and ??, 2 dishwashers, 2 bussers, 2 drink station, 2-3 sundae station, 1 food share table, 1 greeter/person counter, 1 clothing hygiene share table, 4 servers, 2 floaters

This sounds like a lot with having 22 volunteers but we plan to have several stations and we have had an increase in guests numbers are sticking at about 65-75 people per week so we want to make sure we are covered in all areas.

We had 30 hot dogs and buns donated to us along with a lot of BBQ sauce from the team that served last week. This was a nice blessing. If anyone that cannot volunteer on the day of the meal would like to donate any food or beverage items we would certainly accept and appreciate your assistance in that way too 🙂

Blessings to you all!

Mike and Michele Gregson
