If you are parked in handicap parking you must have a handicap decal. If you are a cottage resident please park in designated parking spots only. If you are a resident in the main building please do not park in parking spots designated for cottage residents. The parking spots next to Marketing are for short term parking only. You may park there to pick up your mail, unload your groceries, go to the Café for take-out meals, etc. Please remind friends, family and visitors they should park in the visitor parking lot. Valet parking tickets can be purchased and are available for your convenience at the Reception Desk. If you would like assistance in selling your car please call the Resident Life and Wellness office or stop by for details. If you own two vehicles, please park the least used vehicle toward the end of the parking lot to allow other residents to park closer to the building. If you have not registered your vehicle please do so with the Reception Desk. If you do not use your car as frequently as others, we ask that you move your car further out in the parking lot to allow other drivers easier access. If you have trouble finding parking near your residential building, please ask Security staff for assistance. You can do this by calling the Reception Desk or pulling up to the Main Lobby.

The envelope will be sealed and put in the ballot box to be counted with all the ballots. “Absentee ballots in the sealed unsigned envelopes must be returned at least two days prior to the voting date.” This means that the ballot must be received by Frank Moomaw (Apartment BT09) by Saturday, November 29th. Page 7 Special Announcements FROM THE CHAPLAIN Opportunity to Volunteer!! I have been talking with a representative with Gleaning for the World, a locally-based charity that has been ranked by Forbes Magazine as the “Most Efficient Large Charity in America”. The scope of their work and reach is mindboggling and includes efforts like U.S. Disaster Relief, International Humanitarian Aid, a Teddy Bear Brigade, Feeding Our Neighbors, and Serving Those Who Served. We have been invited to join them in a particular project. To do this, we need willing hands and willing hearts. The specific project is called WINGS. “The WINGS program began when the women at Gleaning For The World organized a program to deal solely with issues affecting women. When the Gleaning women heard of the issues surrounding a woman’s menstruation cycle in developing countries they knew they had to act. They researched ways to help and began producing sustainable, reusable feminine hygiene kits.” Why is this an important issue? “In developing countries, there are stigmas and taboos associated with a woman’s cycle. They aren’t allowed to go to school, work, church, the store or even out in public because they lack proper feminine hygiene product. Women lose an estimated 3 MONTHS per year of education and income because they must hide during their cycle.” These kits are assembled by volunteers and that’s where we come in. If you are interested to learn more about participating in this hands-on volunteer project here on our campus, please call me – Kristie – at X3303 or drop me a note in my IL mailbox. Join us in worship this Sunday at 11:00 AM in Weissert Chapel! All are welcome! Chaplain Kristie will be preaching from Matthew 23:1-12, “From One Pretender to Another”. Remember also that if you aren’t able to attend chapel in person, the service will be broadcast on the Westminster Canterbury TV network, channel 970. Lectionary Readings for 11/2/2014: Micah 3:5-12; Psalm 43; 1 Thessalonians 2:9-13; Matthew 23:1-12. Lectionary Readings for 11/9/2014: Amos 5:18-24; Psalm 70; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Matthew 25:1-13. Peace to you my friends, Chaplain Kristie HAPPINESS REPORTS AND FYI “Happiness is making new friends now that all of us have to use the same elevators to reach the bridge.” Happiness is getting acquainted with the trees of our scenic Nature Trail during the walk by our resident forester. Fall is here! Soon we will see even more fall colors, we hope! Has anyone helped you recently? Does that make you happy? Cards are available in the mail room above the Mixed Paper bin. Turn in your reports to Box C717. FYI: We had no measurable rain this past week which leaves us with 3.12” for October and 35.04” for the year. This is only about .55” above normal. The Pedlar Lake Reservoir is now 6” below normal with 100% of our drinking water coming from the Reservoir while Smith Mountain Lake is now running about 18” – 20” below normal pond level.
