Independence Day at FPS

Posted by on May 31, 2017 in General News

We had so much fun grilling and selling picnic food to the Independence Day Parade spectators last year that we are running it again.  We welcome everyone to help plan, shop, grill, cut watermelons, set up tables and canopies and clean up.  If you can’t be there, you can still help by baking cookies, brownies, or cupcakes ahead of time.  Store them in the brand new freezer with a big tag “July 4 Grill”

We already have several volunteers. Hooray, Volunteers!

Here’s what Leslie and Tom could use help with:

  1. planning
  2. grilling
  3. a trip to BJ’s (do you have a membership cards?)
  4. ice chests

For your offers of help, please contact Leslie Lowe and Tom Yelton.

Free Shredding Service at FPS

Posted by on May 31, 2017 in General News

Our member, Jason Robison, really likes shredding documents and plans to come in often to FPS to help us, and YOU, with our document needs. Jason and his friend Pat Burkhardt already come in and take care of our recycling. (Thanks, Pat and Jason.)


Here’s how the shredding will work.

  1. There will be a box on the shelves outside the FPS office marked “for Jason to shred”
  2. Please bring anything to be shredded there, and each day Fran is in the office, she will put the collected documents near the shredder in the office workroom in a secure location. If you have a large amount of papers, please contact Fran in the office to make arrangements. Stapled papers and envelopes with windows, ok, but no cardstock or plastic, please.
  3. Jason and his responsible, trustworthy professional helper, Maja, will shred and recycle the shreddings.
  4. Your documents will be handled carefully and will be treated as confidential.

This is what we call a Win-Win-Win!

Spirituality and Personal Development Book Group

Our next get-together: Saturday, June 17 10:30am at FPS

We got together for our first meeting on May 20, with great enthusiasm and lots of ideas for future books to read.

The book we chose to read (or begin) by June 17 is “Dying to Be Me” by Anita Moorjani. This is a fascinating account of a woman’s near death experience as a result of Stage 4 cancer, and her medically documented miraculous recovery. Moorjani then begins her life again, grounded in love and begins to help others through her writing and by the way she lives.

It is a fairly quick read, so get it inexpensively online or find a copy through your library and get ready for some inspiring reading. We will meet on June 17, discuss Dying to Be Me, and select the order for the next books we plan to read:

  • The Art of Exceptional Living by Jim Rohn
  • The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer
  • 10% Happier by Dan Harris
  • A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson
