Monthly Community Dinner

Church of St. George, Long Lake

Calvin Presbyterian, St. George and Trinity Lutheran unite to provide a monthly meal for the community of Long Lake and their church members.  These community meals aim to bring people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities together for a meal.  All people are welcome!  This is a great way to meet people from your community.  Dinner and beverages are provided; there is no cost for the meal but donations will be accepted if you wish to give.  The location varies from month to month as the churches rotate hosting duties.

RUMMAGE SALE: 

Wednesday, June 5th:

8am-9am early bird $3 entry fee; 9am-7pm regular sale hours

Thursday, June 6th:

9am-12pm (half price) and 12pm-1pm ($5 per bag)

RUMMAGE SALE COLLECTION DATES

This year we are limiting collection to four days:

                                  June 1: 9am-4pm

                                  June 2: 10am-5pm

                                  June 3: 9am-6pm

                                  June 4: 9am-6pm

We are making several changes to our rummage sale collection process for several reasons. First, many volunteers and hours are required to sort and clean out the donated items that are stored in the classrooms.  The tables and racks will be set up on Friday, May 31st  so that donated items can be placed in the designated area when they are dropped off.  Having the donors assist us in the pre-sorting process in this way will help us reduce the number of hours we spend sorting.  Second, this new process will help us prevent items that we cannot accept from being dropped off.  The disposal fees for these items have increased each year, and we’d like to lower those costs.  We appreciate your patience in implementing a new system which we hope will streamline the number of hours it takes to sort and set up for the sale and also reduce costs.

Knights of Columbus Scholarship

Click here to download the application: KC Scholarship Application 2019

The Father William Nolan Council #12293 has been offering continuing education scholarships to the students at St. George for seven years.  Founded by brothers Ray Hoffman, Greg Ehalt and Bill Pollard, the scholarship program started off with a $500 annual offering and has grown to over $2,000 today.  The Knights are committed to helping as many of our youth as we can, as they are the future of our parish and beyond.  Once again this year, the council is excited to announce scholarships will be offered to St. George high school seniors, current college and vocational technical students, as well as graduates choosing to serve our country.

The scholarship program is just one of many ways that our council serves our communities and parish. We have been fortunate enough to have fundraisers help make this scholarship fund a reality and to grow with each passing year. Without the generosity of the parish, this would not be possible. Anyone interested in making a donation to our scholarship fund, please contact Grand Knight , Ed Rundle.  Thank you all for your kindness and support of our council.

Those interested in applying for this scholarship should look for the scholarship display which is located in the church entrance or download.  Read through the application and eligibility requirements, fill out the application, and then submit it to the address listed on the attached form. There is not a set number of scholarship awards to be given out – it is based upon the applicant pool and funds available in a given year.
