The Next Chat ‘n Snack Is Coming Sunday, July 9th
If you were not able to attend the first Chat ‘n Snack of the summer in June, join in the fun on Sunday, July 9th from 6 to 8 pm at Hanger Hall, 31 Park Avenue, North, about a mile from Jubilee!.  (Maps will be available at the Welcome Counter on Sundays.)  We will gather around the pool to swim, enjoy a potluck dinner and have lots of time to listen to the music and converse.  It is a great way to meet new people!

“We Are In Short Supply of Small Bites”
These words come from our friends at Meals on Wheels. The “small bites” means food for SMALL dogs and for cats of all sizes!  And so, the Jubilee! Service Team is holding a collection for the clients of Meals On Wheels who have small dogs and cats. The food can be either dry or canned. They also mentioned, “We can always use treats as well!” There is a red container near the front entrance for those donating to drop off items. This drive will be thru July 16th.  Thanks in advance for your continued support of the furry ones and the clients at Meals on Wheels.

Evening Song…Singing at CarePartners Hospice Solace Center
Evening Song is a service of the Jubilee! Singers who sing twice a month (the Second Tuesday at 10:30 am and the fourth Tuesday at 6 pm) at CarePartners Hospice Solace Center, located at 21 Belvedere Road off London Road. Gail Ashburn, coordinator, says, “We service not only those who have come to transition to the other side, but also their families and the staff who provide care as well. We use our own songbooks and are learning to harmonize better.  Feel free to contact me if you have questions. My email is blueheron5@hotmail.com or call me at (828) 225-7665. Please, join our chorus.”

The Invisible Made VisibleThursday July 13th, 7 pm
You are invited to an art show of mystical drawings that will inspire, uplift and empower you to be the change you wish to see in our world. Members of the Jubilee! Players, Singers and Spiritual Journeys teams have created this show to share  visions of spirit in hope of comforting and strengthening some of your own experience and knowledge that God and the realm of Grace are real and available to us at all times. Donations at the door.  All proceeds will benefit the Jubilee! Compassion Fund. This special event is sponsored by Appalachian Realty.

Earth Medicine…Sacred Practices to Open the Heart

We will need volunteers to cook, drive, serve as dinner hosts and as overnight innkeepers. Can you help? Sign up in the Hospitality Room. Or call Carol Greenspan at 298-6066 or email her at mcgreenspan@gmail.com. Without your assistance, we could not continue to spread our “angel wings”! Thank you.
