Club Can Do At Methodist Church

RUMFORD — The Rumford United Methodist Church will sponsor a week of activities from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Monday through Friday, Aug. 10 to 14, for children in kindergarten through grade six.

The week is open to all children in the community and visiting children. The church is located on Linnell Street in the Virgina section of Rumford.

The program, Club Can Do Do Goes To Camp EDGE (Experience + Discover God Everywhere), will feature such notable characters as Blaze, the camp director, and Sparx the Fox.

Each day will start with an opening assembly, led by Pastor Kelly Harvell, and will continue with Bible stories, crafts, snacks, music, recreation and classes for the two age groups: lower elementary and middle-upper elementary.

Dee Holman, Amy Breton, Dot Wing, Melissa Munzner and Judy Kuhn will lead the activities with help from Jane Shuck, Kathy Crump and other members of the congregation, who will read Bible stories, lead the recreation and serve snacks.

The philosophy of Club Can Do is doing things for other, so the children will be asked to bring cans and bottles for redemption, an offering and packages or cans of nonperishable food. The food will go to the local food pantry and the money will go to Project Heifer, which provides farm animals to under-privileged families as a way to provide food as well as to earn money by selling the products.

The final day children will go to the Rumford Community Home to sing songs and recite Bible verses. In the evening, there will be a picnic supper for the children and their families. Following the supper the children will present a short program, including songs, verses and recaps of the week’s events.

The week is open to any children in the greater Rumford area and transportation can be provided if necessary. For more information, contact Mrs. Holman at 369-0746.
