Black Lives Matter and Reopening signs on side of building

October 2021 in CYRE:

Hello everybody!

This Week in CYRE:

On Sunday, October 24 our CYRE youth will have the opportunity to learn about and discuss the significance of the Day of the Dead commemorations, and to decorate some “sugar skulls” (which are actually made of wood, so please do not eat them).

Have you heard the latest? We could still use a few volunteers to help us in the classrooms as teachers, to assist on Free Play Days, and to watch over any little ones who may be in our nursery. Please speak to Scott or Mckenzie if you would like to take advantage of this exclusive, limited time offer.

Coming Attractions:

BYOP! (Weather permitting) Saturday Oct 30th 2pm-4pm.
Bring Your Own Pumpkin and implements of destruction for an outdoor community carve! Multiple tables will be set up outside the social hall for plenty of creative space. Tables can be age oriented if we have enough children and youth. All are welcome. Text Bethany at 803-873-7455 for questions.
