9/11 Day of Service at the Church 

9/11 - Day of Service - Since 9/11 of this year is on a Sunday we are going to do our event on the 9th of Sept at the church.

9/11 Day of Service is -Honoring this moment in our nation’s history by serving in your community helps transform 9/11 into a day of unity, empathy, and service as an enduring and positive tribute to those lost and injured on 9/11, and the many who rose in service in response to the attacks, including first responders, recovery workers, volunteers and members of our military.

This year we will do a FOOD DRIVE for the Church Pantry - so I am asking everyone to drop off food items for the church pantry on either Wed the 7th or Friday the 9th of Sept. We are collecting non-perishables items (tuna, canned veggies, fruit, beef stews, rice, noodles, mac & cheese, cereals, oatmeal, peanut butter, jelly, beans, mashed potatoes, cake mixes, brownie mix, pancakes, sugar, and more)

Also if you will bring a donation of a baked good item - store bought is fine - we will be collecting cakes, pies, brownies, cupcakes, muffins, cookies, donuts, various breads and etc to give to the local fire fighters, policemen, hospitals, military and etc. We did this last year and they loved receiving home cooked goodies.

Also that day I need some volunteers to host a LUNCHEON for our group - we will offer spaghetti, rolls, salad and a drink. IF anyone would like to volunteer to come in that day and help cook, set-up and help with clean-up I would be so grateful. Also if you can donate items for this event (spaghetti, sauce, hamburger, rolls, butter, salad) that would help out as well - you can drop off at the Back to School party in Aug or drop off on Wed the 7th or bring that day on the 9th. We will serve lunch from 11:30-12:30 in the fellowship hall - the food is FREE.

So make a note of this event and let's help others - the food pantry really got used the last few months and since we are not there during the summer we need to restock in come fall - the food pantry is open to all REACH members.

As we get closer to the event I will put out another post for sign-up so we know how many will be coming for Lunch so we can make sure we have enough for everyone.   Thank you everyone.

This will be a great time for players of all skill levels from ages 8 and up. We will start off with informal play/teaching sessions, but if interest is high enough, the employees of YHP will host a tournament with prizes for us. Players should bring their own decks, but we should have around 5 extra decks for those that need to borrow one. We are happy to teach anyone that hasn’t played before.

Trolley Tours of Fredericksburg - Sept & Oct 

The downtown tour of old town Fredericksburg, Virginia, is our flagship tour; it's the one that started it all. Enjoy an entertaining and 

informative trip aboard the trolley. Learn about the many famous and interesting people who have been here, including those 

who called Fredericksburg home. Hear about events that have taken place since the city was established in 1728.

During his formative years, George Washington lived just across the Rappahannock River, a "stones throw" from the city where he

 attended school and church. George's mother, sister and brother had homes in Fredericksburg, which are open to the public for tours.

See and hear about the monuments to Thomas Jefferson, who in 1777 gathered with his colleagues in Fredericksburg and drafted the 

Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, a document so powerful that it ultimately led to the religious freedoms in the first amendment 

of the Constitution of the United States.

During your stay, visit the museum and memorial library of our fifth president, James Monroe, who lived and worked in the city as a 

prominent attorney before entering politics and eventually being elected President.  In the 1860's, four major battles of the Civil War 

were fought within 15 miles of the city of Fredericksburg. In 1862, the Battle of Fredericksburg was fought in and around the downtown

 historic district. You will have a chance to view many of the homes, churches and buildings used by both Confederate and Union 

fighting forces during these battles, many of which still bare the scars of the Civil War.

After your tour, you will have a better idea of where you want to visit, including shops, restaurants, and living history museums such

 as Dr. Hugh Mercer's Apothecary Shop, Kenmore Plantation and many more.

(our event will run 10 to 1pm - but you are welcome to stay till 4pm by visiting the vendors and etc)

The event is FREE to attend but I charge $3.00 per child as I go around to the vendors and shop from them so that we have door prizes to give to the kids at the end of the event.

So when you arrive check in with me get a raffle ticket (put their name on it) hand it back to me and at 1pm stop by my table and look for their winning ticket.

then they get auction money to bid on some cool items - so this is how I support their organization.
