SATURDAY, JULY 9TH, WAS A BEAUTIFUL DAY in Horseheads, NY for many reasons. First of all it was a beautiful summer day with a lot of sunshine and a nice breeze to keep it from getting too hot. But more importantly, it was a beautiful day because the people of St. Matthew’s came together to serve their community in different ways. The Browse & Buy had their annual outdoor sale and we also had our semi-annual community dinner. Business at the Browse & Buy was brisk and people came away with many treasures. One woman who came to the community dinner had just been to the sale and she had purchased a beautiful silk flower arrangement. When we commented on it, she beamed and informed us that it had also come with a beautiful vase. Many people who came to the community dinner had been to our previous dinners and they expressed their thanks. One gentleman had remarked that he was so glad that we were there again. He had a stroke previously this year, but he was smiling. We were all happy that by the grace of God we could be together again. Another gentleman asked when the next community dinner was because he really appreciated them. It was a wonderful opportunity for us at St. Matthew’s to serve others. Many people at the community dinner asked if they could make a donation and we told them gently “no thank you, this is our gift to you”. And when someone comes into church, we also need to let them know that we are there to serve them. Thanks to everyone who made Saturday, July 9th, a beautiful day for our community.
Your Wardens, Laurie & John
