Looking For A Little Help Here

The Texas Hold ’Em fundraisers area back, (finally), and we need your help! We are looking for volunteers to staff our chip sales activity in conjunction with the next Hold ‘Em event that is coming up starting on Wednesday, November 3rd through Saturday, November 6th.

These Texas Hold ‘Em’s we work are a MAJOR source of funding for a whole variety of projects---programs---and activities the SPY’s support throughout the year and are critical to our financial success!

If you have never worked one of these events, but would like to help out, there is absolutely nothing to fear! All that is involved is the selling of chips the players use in the game. That is it.

The Hold ‘Em’s we work are held at the “Event Spot”, which is located across from the Lansing Mall, two doors down behind the Honey Baked Ham store on Saginaw Street. We have the following time slots that need to be filled:

· Wednesday Nov 3rd, 2021

- (3) needed at 11am til 2:30 pm

- (3) needed at 2:30pm til 6 pm

· Thursday Nov 4th, 2021

- (2) needed at 11am til 2:30 pm

- (3) needed at 2:30pm til 6 pm

· Friday Nov 5th, 2021

- (1) needed at 6:30pm til 10:30 pm

- (1) needed at 10:30pm til close

· Saturday Nov 6th, 2021

- (2) needed at 6:30pm til 10:30 pm

- (3) needed at 10:30pm til close

Jeff Gibbs has stepped up to take over coordinating things because our old event chairman Wendel Peabody is still ailing. So, please give Jeff a call and volunteer your time to help out on this critical event! You can reach Jeff any of the following ways:

Text - (517) 930-6989

Phone – (517) 930-6989, or (517) 566-3355

Looking Ahead

We are scheduled to work a final Hold ‘Em event for the year that will be coming up Wednesday, December 1st thru Saturday, December 4th. Stay tuned for details on that one.

Friends of the Sunfield District library will be holding their annual Christmas raffle on December 11th. this year. If you would like to donate an item for the raffle, we would appreciate it. All donations need to be in by October 30th. Tickets will be available at the library starting November 2nd. We hope for another good year. Money from the raffle goes to help fund the summer reading program and other extra events such as Ming the Magician, who appears at the Farmer’s Picnic.

Thanks for your support!

• Deep Thoughts of the Week:

{1} Once upon a time, all the villagers decided to pray for rain. On the day of prayer all the people gathered but only one small boy came with an umbrella.-----That's FAITH

{2} When You throw a baby in the air, they laugh because they know you will catch them.---That's TRUST

{3} Almost every night we go to bed, without any assurance of being alive the next morning, but still we set the alarms to wake up.---That's HOPE

{4} We Plan big things for tomorrow in spite of absolutely no knowledge of the future.---That's CONFIDENCE

{5} We see the world suffering and in turmoil, but still we get married.---That's LOVE

{6} On an old woman's shirt was written a cute sentence - 'I Am Not 80 Years Old,---I Am Sweet 16 with 64 Years' Experience.'---That's ATTITUDE

• Notable Quote: “Lazy is such an ugly word. I prefer the term selective participation.”

• That’s Puny Department: Shout out to the people who ask what the opposite of "in" is. (Think about it!)

• Did You Know Section: Nine American crewmen survived when their war planes were shot down and crashed during World War Two. Eight of them were captured by the Japanese and eaten. Only one survived because he was picked up by a passing submarine. That survivor was George H.W. Bush.
