"A BBQ FOR WILDWOOD YOUTH RETREAT ATTENDEES"
All youth and chaperones that attended the Wild Wood, NJ 2015 Event and their families are invited for fun, friendship, and food at the residence of Angela Settimio and her children, Anna, Nick, and Regina Gentile.  All are welcome to arrive at 1009 Evesham Court in the Chesterfield Development that is adjacent to Advent. 

Angela and her children will provide chicken and vegetable kabobs and hot dogs and baked beans.  Participants are asked to bring any kind of beverage, salad, or dessert that might complement the meal.  Any "yard games" would also be helpful.  We have bean-bag toss, soccer balls, and frisbees.  We have plenty of yard and common area space for all to have fun!

Please R.S.V.P. by 8/30.  Please email your response indicating the number of people attending and any food item that you are bringing, or any yard game you can bring.  Please email your response, or any questions that you may have to:  amsettimio@gmail.com, or call / text Angela's cell# at 610-389-8119 to leave a message.

We hope that you can make the BBQ and look forward to seeing everyone on September 6th at 3:30 P.M.

2015 ELCA Youth gathering in Detroit
The 2015 ELCA Youth Gathering in Detroit, a time of worship, study and service, where about 30,000 Lutherans from across the country will gather, will be held July 15-19. 2015. We sent a large group to this Gathering in 2012 and hope to repeat the experience next year. For information, please go to elca.org/gathering. To reserve your spot, a $100 non-refundable deposit needs to be made by June 15 this year. After June 15, the deposit increases to $150. We hope to secure transportation before the end of the summer and will have fund raising opportunities that should allow youth to cover most if not all of the remaining cost of the retreat. This deposit may be made online (see “Donate Now”), or by check.
 
ROTARY SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
There are two main avenues for scholarships through Rotary.  The first can be accessed through the club website - http://www.westchesterrotary.us.  There's a tab for scholarships on the right hand side of the page.  I clicked it today, but it didn't come up so check it out at your leisure.  These scholarships are $2,500 each and are geared toward high school seniors active in service, in tune with the Rotary ideal of Service Above Self.  It may be limited to WCASD kids.
 
The other is through the Gundaker Foundation, which is our District's own Foundation.  They are $1k to 9k and are for high achieving kids with some financial need.  I was President of this Foundation a few years back, and the kids that received money were all rock stars. This is for students entering their Junior or Senior year.  There is a pot of money for Grad students too.  Here's the link for this - http://www.rotary7450.org/gundaker/programs.htm#Undergraduate
 
Konnect with Kids
Is planning regular outings throughout the year for parents, grandparents and family members of children preschool through the 5th grade.  It is a wonderful way to meet other parents and enable your children to get to know other children from Advent before they reach their teen years and begin participating in youth group!  
 

 
 
Konnect with Kids
 
Konnect with Kids is led by Lisa Storniolo. Every month, Konnect with Kids offers a gathering for children preschool age through elementary school. Children come with their parents, grandparents or other family member. Recent events included a brunch with Santa complete with arts and crafts, a hike through Ridley Creek State park followed by time in the playground for a bagged lunch and then a quick trip to Yogo for frozen yoghurt on the way home. Planned events include movie/game nights and a Pirate Day. For more information about future events or to get more involved, contact Lisa Stornio at 610-565-3482, lstorniolo@yahoo.com.

 

Thank you from Advent’s ASP teams!
With your generous support and supplemental funding from the Chester County Chapter of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, we were able to serve two families in Jackson, KY, making their homes warmer, safer, and drier. We could not have done it without you.
