Trinity’s book club will meet on Tuesday, April 14, at 6:30 p.m. in the Trinity Library to discuss Wait Till Next Year, Doris Kearns Goodwin’s touching memoir about her love of family and baseball. Bring a light dinner, if you wish–or perhaps some peanuts and Cracker Jack! We’ll close out the season on May 12 with a classic: The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald. If you’re interested in Book Chat, contact Kathy Maher (Kathyngs@gmail.com) to be added to the email list.
Crafts for a Cause has a lot of new projects going on this spring, as we continue to provide more comfort items for Fair Oaks Hospital. We’ve been working on heart-shaped pillows for breast cancer patients, lap blankets and pillows for chemotherapy patients, along with neck pillows, stuffed bears and surgery dolls. We’ll be cutting, sewing, stuffing and stitching at two work sessions this month: Mon., April 6 and Mon., April 20, both at 7 p.m. in Room 124 in the Sanctuary building. Everyone’s welcome, materials and instruction provided.
There is an ongoing demand for knit caps for newborns, so if you’d like to crochet or knit some of these caps, we have patterns and yarn for you. For more information, contact Molly Sprouse at email@example.com or 703-356-4896.
Church & Society
April Collection Drive
For the month of April, Church and Society is collecting clothing for Christ House and Carpenter’s Shelter. Christ House, a residential medical facility in Washington, D.C., specifically needs new or gently worn spring and summer men’s casual clothing in sizes small to extra large, new men’s underwear any size, new socks any size/color and new or gently worn sweat pants for men in any size. Men’s clothing only. Donations will also aid Carpenter’s Shelter, serving homeless and formerly-homeless adults and children. Please place your donations in Church and Society’s collection baskets or closet located in the Fellowship Building.
Thank you for the travel-size toiletry items collected during the month of March. Personal hygiene kits will soon be assembled using those items, and given as Mother’s Day gifts to women coming to Martha’s Table.
