April 15th Coming SOON!
Do you need a printed charitable contribution statement? With the changes in the tax laws for 2019, we realize that most folks will be taking the standard deduction rather than itemizing deductions. With that in mind, we are trying a different approach to our Charitable Contribution statements. For folks needing a written statement, we will mail it upon request. So…if you need one, just ask. Contact Don Fortuna at (828) 252-5335 or [email protected]
ity.org. We are trying to save unnecessary postage, effort and paper. But, we understand that this is a “trial balloon” and your feedback is requested.
Love Is All There Is
…Monday, April 15th, 6:30 to 8:30 pm
In the world of chaos it’s sometimes hard to see the path of love. But come, let’s find the path, the spiritual journey that lead us around the chaos. Join us as Peggy Moore shares. We will meet downstairs in the Garden Room. Bring a dish and share your food, your heart, and your spiritual journey. All are welcome. Arrive early so we can start with the Calling of the Ancestors at 6:30, followed by a short meditation.
