Farewell John and Ray…Welcome New Board Members
…Hello to Elizabeth, Jenny and Patrick
In the month of June, the Jubilee! Board is saying goodbye to John Busse and Ray Raymond who have completed their terms in office. And, we are saying hello to three new persons who are beginning their terms beginning July 1st. The new members include Elizabeth Werle, Jenny Farthing and Patrick Fitzsimmons.  Stefanie Beierschmitt, who joined the Board last year to replace Barbara Brady who needed to resign, will now serve a full term with Elizabeth, Jenny and Patrick to form the Class of 2022. These individuals are all long term members of the Community who support Jubilee! with their time and their dollars. Each brings unique gifts to share and in the coming weeks you can read about each of them starting in the July 5th edition of this newsletter.  Farewell John and Ray. You have been a blessing to us. And, welcome Elizabeth, Jenny, Patrick and Stefanie. You are joining up just in time to help us manage this major transition from Howard to Amy!

Ending…At Least for the Summer
Sunday, June 2nd was the last 8:30 am Celebration & Communion for the summer, that is for the months of July, August and September.  A decision about the return or “reinvention” of the service will be made in the fall when Amy assumes her responsibilities as our Minister of Ritual and Celebration. Watch for more details.
Vespers…Jay Joslin will be hav-ing surgery at some point this sum-mer.  With that in mind, he has decided that he will suspend the
Vespers for the summer.

Jubilee! will be closed on Thursday, July 4th and Friday, July 5th in observance of the Independence Day holiday.  We will be back in business on Sunday, July 7th.

Walking the Greenway
Wednesday June 26th, from 5:30—7:30 pm
The Next Generation Team (for Jubilants in the 20’s-40’s age range) is walking the Greenway by the river and socializing over food and drinks after. Expect to walk at least 3 – 4 flat miles, about 1 to 1.5 hours. This is a great, casual opportunity to get some exercise while getting to know each other better! Bring water and good shoes. Dogs and kids (who can either easily walk several miles, or be carried that far) are welcome!  Meet at New Belgium Brewing (21 Craven St. 28806). Invite your friends, too. This event is open to all! If you have any questions, message Team Leader, Stefanie Beierschmitt through Facebook, email at akkadoll7 @gmail.com, or text (828) 450-6141.

How to Boost Your Immunity Using Herbs
…Thursday, June 27th at 1—3 pm
Jackie Dobrinska says, “Antibiotics save lives. Yet, today, we see more and more antibiotic resistance. Luckily, herbs can help.  Learn how to build your innate immune system so you don’t get sick and what to do if you do.” This Community Life event will meet at The Lord’s Acre…Joe Jenkin’s Road in Fairview.  A suggested donation $10—20 to cover costs of materials is asked. Questions? Email Jackie at [email protected]

Want Milkweed?
“Are you struggling to get your swamp milkweed seeds growing?  I’ve heard that from many of you.  So, on Sunday, June 30th we will be passing out 100’s of milkweed starter plants for free (or for a donation to your Earth Team if you are willing.)  Let’s continue to help the monarchs by giving them their only food source for the caterpillar stage of this butterfly.” – Tim Wilkins for the Earth Team
