Halloween Service Project
Halloween might be a spooky time, but it can also be a time to do something surprisingly nice for others.  With that in mind it was suggested that we do a service project.  After some conversation, we thought it would be nice to make a little something that we could take to our church members at Carroll House and Jefferson Park.  What to make?  That was the big question.  Some ideas were shared, but no conclusions were drawn.  So, we are inviting everyone to look around for some small, simple to make, little thing we could make.  If you find a good idea, email it to Susan.  We will look at your ideas and make a decision at our upcoming meeting on October 11.  We will make our "treats" on Wednesday, October 18 and then deliver them to the nursing homes on Wednesday, October 25.  So, we need to decide at our next meeting what we will make.  By the way, we will need a few parents to drive us to the nursing homes (hint, hint).

Christmas Party
At our last meeting we decided to have our Christmas party on Wednesday, December 13.  So, be sure to put that on your calendar.  We agreed to exchange "secret Santa" gifts.  We settled on a $10 maximum for these gifts.  You can make a list of things you might want for $10 so your secret Santa will have an idea about what to get you.  We'll draw names for the gift exchange when we get closer to the party.

C.M.U. Tops in Dollars for Scholars
Central United Methodist University (formerly, Central United Methodist College) leads all UMC-related colleges and universities in the country in the number of Dollars For Scholars student aid recipients.  C.M.U. partners with local United Methodist congregations, the United Methodist Higher Education Foundation (UMHEF) and the Missouri United Methodist Foundation (MUMF) to provide these renewable ($3K-$4K) scholarships.  This year C.M.U. and the Missouri Conference had 45 DFS recipients, second only to the Georgia Conference, which has nearly a dozen UMC-related colleges and universities compared to Missouri's one and only university-C.M.U.
