St. Martin’s Church Notes Kite Festival September 26

St. Martin in the Fields is cosponsoring the Third Mountain Top Kite Festival on September 26th with Rice Township.

This will be a fantastic event for “children” of all ages and the third one to be held in our area. Each child can sign up to build a free kite from a kit and then be helped to learn how to fly it. There will be a kite flying exhibition by the Pocono Kite Symphony and a DJ will keep you entertained. Mark your calendar now so as not to miss out on this experience. A bounce house, face painter and a balloon sculptor will be on hand for more fun things to do. There will be plenty of hotdogs and whimpies for sale to sate your appetite.

St. Martin’s Church will be holding a Chinese/Tricky Tray Auction for the first time during the Kite Festival. This will take the place of the bazaar that we have had in October and should be lots of fun for everyone. The Chinese Auction will have many items to peruse and drop you tickets in the cans. There will be gift baskets, white elephant items, gift certificates and other treasures.

St. Paul’s Lutheran Church food bank provides food boxes for over 60 families each month. In September we will be collecting peanut butter and jelly for their food bank. This past winter we collected cereal, dried milk, pasta and pasta sauces. You can bring you contribution to this worthy cause to the Church on Sundays.
