The POC Community Service Club is going to the movies! We will be showing family friendly classics suitable for all ages at the Community Center, inside the main building, the second and fourth Tuesday of the summer months. We moved it inside to avoid the flies and mosquitoes and enjoy the air conditioning. Please bring your lawn chair, sleeping bag or blanket to make your floor spot comfy, and enjoy the movie no charge. We will have fresh popcorn too. Doors will open at 7:00 pm on June 13 and 27, July 11 and 25, and August 8 and 22. Bring your family and your friends and join the fun.

We are so proud of our local students and their many accomplishments this year. The Service Club helped with rewarding A/B Honor Roll Students at the Elementary School and awarded two scholarships for college studies to hometown kids. Congrats to Kinzie Stringo and Johnathan Pitonyak! Read their stories under Scholarships 2017.

We are beginning the sorting and planning for the October 7th Fall Garage Sale. Your donations of gently used clothing and household goods will make our sale successful. If you have items you want to donate now, please call Linda Orrick at 719-650-3433, Diane Cooley at 903-467-6335, Kelly Gee at 817-929-2564 or Marie Hawes at 361-920-2322. They will help you out.

Summer is a little slower for club because we are so busy everywhere else. We only meet once a month. Come see us July 6th at 10:00 a.m. at the Community Center. Even on our abbreviated schedule, we have projects progressing and volunteer positions open. Check to see if one might be right for you.

So, until next time, be safe, live simply, love openly, forgive generously and remember this quote by Norwegian poet and playwright Henrick Ibsen who said, “A community is like a ship; everyone ought to be prepared to take the helm.” If you join us on our ship we will teach you how to steer and never throw you overboard!
