All Saints Day Bonfire at Hanger Hall
…Tuesday, November 1st at 5 pm
Join us at Hanger Hall, 31 Park Avenue, North, less than a mile from Jubilee! for our annual All Saints Day Bonfire. It is said that on the Day of the Dead the veil between this world and the next is lifted and communication may happen. So…we’ll share memories of our deceased loved ones, send them messages. We will also read, pray and burn the prayers from the Jubilee! Prayer Wall. Bring munchies & drinkies if you wish.

The Few, the Proud, the Hard Workers
One reason that Jubilee! is able to share a sizeable portion of our budget to help others is that we handle many necessary tasks with volunteers. On Saturday, October 15th, we had our fall Clean Up. Volunteers washed windows, cleaned the kitchen from top to bottom, replaced damaged ceiling tiles and much more! Jubilants who participated were Kathy & John Busse, Nan Davis, Jenn Garrett, Rose Jenkins, Paul Muller, Ray Raymond and Anne Wray.
Time to Fall Back!

Are Your Beliefs Holding You Back?
…Thursday, November 10th and Monday, November 14th from 7—8:30 pm
“If you’re not living your higher purpose, then whose purpose are you living? Join us for an exploration of the negative habits, beliefs, and scripts that may be running your life and keeping you from knowing and living your true purpose. We’ll also explore a simple process for testing and challenging those beliefs that can bring you relief from their effects and help you clear out the inner obstacles that may be keeping you from living your truest life.” Join Jubilant Steve Martin for this enlightening discussion. This class is sponsored by the Jubilee! Spiritual Journey Team.
Winter Items Needed
The Jubilee! Service Team is sponsoring a collection drive to help the homeless at AHOPE Day Center. “Our Day Center is the front door to all of our services. We provides things like showers, mail, storage, coffee and a safe place to rest but we also assess people for housing assistance because our ultimate mission is to end homelessness with permanent housing.” A red collection bin is in the foyer through November 20th. Items needed for both men and women and include hats/toboggans, gloves, scarfs, hand warmers, socks (much needed) and cough drops.
