 TEAM MEMBER OPPORTUNITY
 

Would you like to be on a Wilmington Emmaus Live-in Team for an upcoming Walk Weekend? Serving on a team is a wonderful experience, and new people are always needed to fill the positions. However, being on a team is not for everyone, so it is very helpful for those who are choosing team members to know who is interested in serving. If you would like to be considered for a team, please e-mail either Mike Daugherty at mike@clintoncountylawyer.com or Randy Riley at crriley@cinci.rr.com and include your contact information. Also, if you are interested in helping out with the music on a team (or a gathering!) please let Jennie Harner know at harnersewing@yahoo.com.

Moving? New Phone Number? New Name?

It is very challenging to keep the Wilmington Area Emmaus Community database of members current. We use our database to know who is eligible to serve as team members on our Emmaus Walk weekends and to publish the community roster. Randy Riley and Chuck Tabor have maintained the information for several years. Over that time, people have changed addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses and even names. We also have Chrysalis members and Emmaus members who did not take their Pilgrim Walk at the Wilmington United Methodist Church who are not included in the database. If you know of changes that need to be made to your information, or if you donít think you are included in our database, please contact Randy at crriley@cinci.rr.com or call him at 937-382-6204. If there is no answer, leave a message with the information and Randy will make all the necessary changes or additions. The information needed is: Name, Address, Telephone, Email, Walk # and where and when your walk was taken. DeColores.

TABLE AGAPE REMINDER

An important reminder regarding Table Agape: According to the "Hand Book On Emmaus" on page 60, "Table agape is an expression of unconditional love, therefore personal names are not attached, although Reunion Group or church names are acceptable." Please do not include the names of the reunion group's members. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.


'CLOSING' MEAL CHANGE

   Starting in February 2017, we will be changing our light meal on Sunday to before closing rather than after closing. By Sunday evening, the team and pilgrims are tired and many are anxious to get home. This will enable the kitchen staff to finish the huge clean up efforts while closing is taking place.
   Finger foods, desserts and drinks will be available in the dining room before closing. We will have some of the same on the snack table upstairs for the team and pilgrims. These foods will be provided by the kitchen, you do not need to bring anything in.
   I realize this change may not be well received by some in the community. I would ask for your patience and understanding. The Sunday cleanup takes a great deal of time and effort. It will be a big relief to be able to accomplish the final tasks a little earlier in the day allowing everyone to be home a little bit sooner.

Respectfully,
Jenny Dobbs
Kitchen Coordinator
