Our Youth Director, Chris Clark shares about hurricane relief efforts in Honduras. If you would like to contribute to these relief efforts, you can make a donation by check to Westminster Presbyterian Church with "Honduras Hurricane Relief" in the memo line. All monies collected will go directly to the purchase of food and clothing, as well as funding for a medical brigade. We hope you consider contributing what you can to assist our brothers and sisters in Honduras during this season!

Robbe Healey and Rob Necarsulmer from the Endowment Fund Board of Managers are presenting a $1,500 check to Karen Koepke, Thrift Shop Manager. The funds were awarded to the Thrift Shop to help pay for the restoration of the floor. The Thrift Shop flooded during tropical storm Isaias which required the removal of carpeting on one side of the shop and mold remediation. Specifically the grant covered the cost of the supplies to polish and paint the floor and the cost of renting the equipment needed to remove rug glue off the floor and polish the cement. All labor was done by volunteers so there was no labor cost. Also this week, the Thrift Shop Board of Directors welcomed three new members, Joanne Ebert, Cheryl Whiteley, and Carol Wawrzyniak to the board at their November meeting!
