Dear SICM Friend,
    A new feature of the Harvest for the Pantry this year will be a Bake Sale.  In getting around various of our congregations, I know there are many talented bakers... The Harvest is coming on Sunday November 6; starting at 4 pm, at First Reformed of Scotia. We are starting this is as a pilot effort this year and hope to build on it as the Harvest continues.  Our pantry continues to fulfill a critical need in our community.
    We are seeking donations of baked goods to sell during the dinner; all types welcome.  I need to try to make it clear:  these will not be pick a prize or auction, but directly for sale during the dinner times.  We ask that you bring it by when you come on the 6th, or someone will be there from about 1 pm on.
    We are grateful to Natalie Monaghan for this idea and for heading this up this year; please let her know what you can bring (or for questions):  charltonflyer@aol.com.
    Thank you for considering this.    Rev. Phil

Backpack stuffing
SICM was happy to partner with Schenectady Community Action Program (SCAP) in distributing backpacks to members of the Schenectady community. The back-to-school initiative was funded by a grant which paid for the backpacks and the contents: water bottles,
lunch bags, food items, and personal hygiene items.
