Jubilee! Attention Deficit Story Jam—Postponed
It has come to our attention that the Jam conflicts with the fundraiser for Kat Williams.  To honor both her healing journey and your amazing stories, we are rescheduling this event for September, exact date will be announced soon.  As a result, the anticipation and participation has an opportunity to grow! Keep refining your slide shows, and if you’ve been on the fence about sharing, now is your chance to jump on board. Just talk to Jackie Dobrinska, our Coordinator of Community Life, after a Celebration.

Are You Ready for This Year’s Election?
With the recent decision of the US Appeals Court, we no longer have to bring a photo ID when we vote. However, there is plenty to do to get prepared to vote.  Are you registered at your current address under your current name? We can help you get registered or update your registration almost every Sunday before Election Day, November 8th!  Most importantly, if you pledge to vote, you will receive timely e-newsletters come fall to help you get your sample ballot; learn about early voting dates, times and locations; and get at least one candidate guide. You can sign up most Sundays.  If you are interested in assisting with this effort, either at Jubilee or in the general community, contact Ron  Katz at 768-4559 or at [email protected]
