This is the tenth consecutive summer that the church has participated in volunteer work. Previous mission trips have included sites in New Orleans, Ohio, Pittsburgh, West Virginia, Wyoming, San Antonio, Vermont, Chicago and Washington, DC. Fundraisers held throughout the year, including a pancake breakfast, and spaghetti supper and talent show, help underwrite the cost of travel.  The trivia night replaces the church's spring tag sale.

For additional information or to register or donate to the silent auction, please contact Nancy Elkin at nancyelkin@comcast.net or 908-451-1977. Come one, come all to help make this a fundraiser that isn’t trivial!
