May Upcoming Events

Help needed with Buildings and Grounds

The spring is upon us and there are tasks that need to be done off-budget. The B&G team is very flexible and can work to meet your schedule. Please contact Gary Mummert via email if you can paint, use a rake or shovel, clean windows, or operate a blower or trimmers. Also, listen to the spring peepers and frogs, and take time to meditate near our pond.

Soup Kitchen Corner by Judy Lacker

On Saturday, May 7th, some members of Soup Kitchen Team 3 will be returning to the Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen on Spring Street to help serve take-out meals that were cooked in volunteers’ homes as well as bagged sandwiches for lunches and breakfasts for Pacific House homeless shelter, also prepared in volunteers’ homes as well as through donations. Unfortunately, we are not yet able to serve the guests
a meal inside because of the Covid pandemic.

You can also help feed our neighbors with a gift card in any amount from any local supermarket. In addition, you can still continue to make food donations to the Daily Bread Food Pantry (25 West Street – entrance off Terrace Place). Donations are accepted on Mondays between 11 am and 2 pm and on Fridays between 8:30 am and 11:30 am. Lynn Taborsak has also been scheduling the sandwich donations so we have just the right amount each day at Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen. If you are interested in making sandwiches, please email her at We can all be an important part of the fight to end hunger in our community!

On Thursday, May 19th the Book Conversation Group will be discussing

“Doughnut Economics: Seven Ways to Think like a 21st Century Economist” by Kate Raworth. Renegade economist Kate Raworth says most of the fundamental ideas in economics are centuries out of date. Yet they are still taught in college courses worldwide and still used to address critical issues in government and business alike. The author says it’s time to revise our economic thinking for this century. She points out ways to break our addiction to growth; redesign money, finance and business to be in service to people. Ultimately, we can create economies that are regenerative and distributive by design.
