Spaghetti Dinner Feb. 14 benefits youth

On February 14, there will be a very special dining opportunity for lunch. Katy’s Café will be trans-formed into an Italian restaurant reminiscent of a scene from La Dolce Vita or Roman Holiday!

The Plymouth Senior High Youth are raising monies to fund a trip to the national youth conference of the United Church of Christ in Orlando, July 2016. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our youth at a conference that takes place only every three years. It provides an opportunity to meet with other young people from churches all over the United States; to participate in serious discussion, workshops and worship; provide outreach social justice work in the greater Orlando area and have some fun (there has been mention of Epcot and Disney). In order to participate in the trip, our students need help to cover their expenses. Proceeds from the recent Wreath Sale, as well as this Spaghetti Dinner and some as yet unannounced fundraisers will go toward the trip. It’s an exciting time for our youth and for the future of our Senior High Youth program.

Mark February 14, noon until 2 p.m., on your calendars. It’s a way to help, while at the same time enjoying what we promise will be a delicious meal and some great entertainment. And, yes, we know it’s Valentine’s Day—what better way to say “Happy Valentine’s Day” to a special someone! Costs: $5 adult; $2 child under 12; $20 maximum for families!

Becoming a dementia-friendly community, Feb. 27

Memory loss and/or dementia affect people in our families, our communities and our church. Often we don’t know what to say or how to offer support to someone who is experiencing memory loss or dementia—or to their relatives and close friends.

A Dementia Friends training (www.actonalz.org/dementia-friends), sponsored by the Plymouth Dementia Project and facilitated by Jeanne Schuller, a social worker certified in Dementia Friends training (and a Plymouth member), will be held Saturday, Feb. 27, 10 a.m.–noon in the Jackman Room at Plymouth. This program will provide information about dementia as well as some ideas on how we all might assist people with dementia and their families. The State of Minnesota has taken a lead in creating dementia-friendly communities. Dementia Friends will help us to begin to make Plymouth a dementia-friendly congregation. There is no cost for this event but please register by February 20 online or by calling Doug Freeman, Ministry Assistant at 612/977-1279. For more information, please call Cathie Crooks, Minister for Congregational Care, at 612/977-1286. All are welcome!
