Do You Have a Favorite Jubilee! Moment, Memory or Story?
…Come share that story and help create new ones on Sunday, October 7th at 7 pm at Jubilee!
Something that made you laugh, cry, or feel a little better?  Or something in your life that stemmed from or was inspired by Jubilee!?  Would you like to gather with other Jubilants to share stories? Better yet, what if those stories were immediately turned into a piece of improvisational theater that would have all of us laughing and crying and feeling a little better together? You’ll have your chance on Sunday, October 7th at 7 pm.  Don’t miss this opportunity, led by Daniel Barber and Jessica Chilton from the Transition Team, to share treasured memories and create new ones. A $10 suggestion donation is asked, all of which will go to the Jubilee! Hunger fund. But, please note that no one will be turned away for any reason.

We Need You
…To share your ideas for the Next Generation Team on Tuesday, October 9th at 5:30 pm
You are invited to engage in a discussion between Jubilants (aged 20’s – 40’s) about your unique perspectives regarding the future of Jubilee!  What do you love about our community? What would you want to change? Got fresh ideas to share?  Join us at the Battery Park Book Exchange, located in the Grove Park Arcade, from 5:30 – 7:30 pm. Questions? Contact Stefanie Beierschmitt at (828) 450-6141, at [email protected]

Early Voting Begins October 17th
…Are you registered?  Need information?  We are here every Sunday! We can help!
This year, the “mid-terms” include races for US House, NC House, NC Senate, Buncombe County Commission, Buncombe County Sheriff and more. You can also expect to have up to 6 constitutional amendments on your ballot. The Voting Rights issue group of the Social Justice team will have someone in the Hospitality Room before and after the 9:45 and 11:15 celebrations every Sunday until Election Day. We’ll be available to provide information, register you to vote (if needed), and answer your questions. Contact Ron Katz at [email protected] if you want to help or have questions.

It happens every year on the 1st Sun-day in October which is also known as St. Francis Sunday. So, locate the pet shampoo, find the leash, and bring your pet to Jubilee! to be blessed.
