Hands Across Middlesex

by Cathy Newcomb

The December meeting was held at Immanuel Baptist Church on Town Bridge Road outside of Urbanna. Twenty-two people attended and many churches were represented. We met in the recently-completed fellowship hall. It is a lovely room. All of the church members should be proud of it. Thank you all for inviting us to share your beautiful addition.

Our main focus this afternoon was to firm up our plans for the Christmas meal deliveries. Our plan of action will be somewhat different this year. Instead of all contributions being prepared at home and delivered to Urbanna United Methodist Church by 9 a.m., much of the food will be prepared in the church kitchen, beginning at 7 a.m. Those of you packaging the meals will need to be at the church by 9 a.m. Those delivering meals can start that process at 9:15 a.m. We look forward to as many people as possible to participate at any one of these three times. Thank you in advance for donating your time to a worthy cause at this very busy time of the year.

Hands would like for you all to take note of these few reminders:

  • If you would like to help build ramps for the handicapped, please call Bob Murphy at 758-9292.
  • If you can contribute furniture to the furniture barn, please call Judi Wendell at 824-8325.
  • If you have a need, or would like to donate food to the food bank, please call 758-1282.
  • Please mark your calendars for a February 15 concert at Lower United Methodist Church in Hartfield. Ellen Tennenbaum will be giving a piano concert at 3 p.m. This concert is free. Refreshments will be served following the performance. You are sure to have a good time. A donation jar will be available.

Hands Across Middlesex is a 501-C nonprofit organization. Our office is located at Philippi Church in Deltaville. The phone number is: 776-8535. Our mailing address is: P.O. Box 1299, Saluda, VA 23149.
Our next meeting will be at Antioch Church on Oakes Landing Road in Saluda. Our meetings are held the third Sunday of every month at 3:30 p.m. The public is always invited to attend.

Have a wonderful holiday and new year.
