Many of us have enjoyed kayaking right from the SMA wharf during our church picnic and youth group events. On September 9th, at 1:00PM, we can enjoy kayaking and help the Maryland Association for Parkinson Support at the same time!
Paddling 4 Parkinson’s will benefit Maryland Association for Parkinson Support (MAPS). MAPS is dedicated to providing support to the Parkinson’s Disease Community. This event will be held Saturday, September 9, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. (September 16th – For rain or small craft advisory) in the town of North East, Maryland.
Paddlers will launch from West Church Point Road into the North East River. Arrive at least 30 minutes prior to launching to ensure time to unload your kayak or complete the rental process. Please be ready to launch at 1 p.m.
To rent a kayak, please contact Bay Venture Outfitters prior to the event date letting them know you will be participating in Paddling 4 Parkinson’s. Rental fees should be paid directly to Bay Venture Outfitters. All proceeds from kayak rentals will be donated to MAPS.

We have had a substantial increase in requests for diapers from our Outreach clients. So we have deemed August “Diaper Drive Month”. We are asking for disposable diapers and baby wipes. Sizes 2 thru 6 are the most requested!
Diaper donations will be blessed on the 4th Sunday of the month–August 27th. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
We will be painting in the Parish Hall next week, Monday 7/24 through Thursday 7/27. We would love to have many volunteers to move the project along quickly. We will begin at 9:00AM and work until 4:00PM, but any time you can give during the day would be appreciated. If you have brushes for painting the wood trim or a step ladder, bring them along.
Andy and Mike Pugh have graciously offered to bring us lunch and feed the crew on Monday! Thanks for your help!
In preparation, I will also be at the Parish Hall at 9:00AM on Saturday 7/22 to get the trim and walls ready for the paint. If you want to come (any time until noon) to lend a hand, please do. Thanks again.
PS: Thanks to our new air-conditioning system, we will be cool and comfortable as we paint!
