VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY ON OCTOBER 3
St. Nicholas is responsible for volunteers every six weeks at the St. Elizabeth’s Jubilee Center (essentials pantry) which takes place on the lower floor rear of St. Luke’s Cathedral on State Street in Portland. St. Nicholas has been involved in the diocese with this most needed service for many years. Our next date is Tuesday, October 3. Our commitment is from 9-11am. The first half hour is spent putting out the donations. At 9:30am, folks enter the center about 15 at a time. Since we serve upwards to 250 on most Tuesdays, they are limited to about 15 minutes to peruse the items that have been donated. At 11am all items not taken are stored. Terry Foster always serves there. We need other volunteers from St. Nicholas. See him for any details not mentioned above.

Harvest Fest 2017 will take place on October 14th from 10-2.
This is our 3rd annual event held to celebrate the Community Garden.
We will have Gardeners and Crafters from the community and St Nick’s has a craft table, raffles, music, bratwurst and soups, and baked goods.
We will need donations for our tables and congregation help “personing” the fair.
Contact Nancy Agan, Kelly Martino, or Jane Ducott with any questions.
Sunday, October 15 – Giving Sunday – On the third Sunday of each month we encourage members to bring a non-perishable food item for donation to the Scarborough Food Pantry. Thanks for your generosity!

ENTERING ST. NICK’S DURING THE WEEK – If you are stopping by St. Nick’s during the weekdays, you may ring the front doorbell to get in (unless it is naptime from 11:30am to 2:30pm). If you don’t have a key, and don’t want to use the front door, please use the kitchen door when coming in to St. Nick’s during the week.
