Minnesota State Fair “Water Welcome”

waterwelcomeThe Minnesota State Fair is coming up, and as one of the Park and Ride sites, we will be seeing lots of folks passing through our parking lot on these hot summer days. To provide Gloria Dei hospitality for our fair-going friends, we are again seeking your help!

Donations: We need lots of bottled water to support this ministry of hospitality! Please leave your donations outside the Sharing Place (near Room 100 in the lower level hallway). We can also use cash donations, which offset the costs of ice and publicity materials. Financial contributions can be left in the church office (memo: “State Fair water”).

VolunteeringWill you help us hand out water and smiles? We would love volunteers who have done it before, and folks who are new to the routine! One thing is for sure: it is a great way to meet new people from near and far, as well as keep them comfortable on their way to the State Fair. We will have shifts available every day of the fair.
