Holiday Shopping Helps Trinity:  If you do a lot of your holiday shopping on Amazon, please enroll in the Amazon Smile charity program. Trinity will receive .005% of almost every dollar you spend. It may not seem like much, but if we all do it, it can really add up. Go to www.smile.amazon.com to sign up, choose Trinity as your charity (there are a lot of Trinity churches in the pull down menu, so keep going until you find us) and you are all set.  All your other Amazon benefits (Prime membership, student membership, etc) wil lstay the same. You lose nothing and Trinity gains a lot.

Holiday Party at The Vicarage:  Saturday, December 9.  Drop in anytime from 2 pm – 6 pm for carols, cookies and fun. No RSVP required.

Little Food Pantry:  We have been given a large box of taco seasoning mixes for the Little Free Food Pantry.  Do you have a simple, tasty recipe that uses (or could use) such a mix?  We would like to include your recipe (and possibly some other ingredients) in “kits” for LFFP users.  See Diane if you are willing to share a recipe!

Food Depot:  Our Food Depot items for November: Peanut Butter & Jelly/Thanksgiving freewill choices—check sale items!
