YOLO (You Only Live Once) 55+

From October – May, YOLO meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 8:30am at Grace for a delicious catered breakfast and a guest speaker.  We are planning an exceptional itinerary for our next YOLO season starting in October. We have great speakers/events lined up. You will want to look forward to more good times with friends at Grace.

As we approach a beautiful fall and the return of many of our favorite things to do, we hope that a fresh, new season of YOLO Breakfasts/Events is at the top of your List.

Mark your calendar now for our big KICKOFF BREAKFAST on October 18, at 8:30 a.m. in the Grace Lobby. If you haven’t attended before, we warmly invite you to join us. If you are a regular attendee, this is a perfect time to invite new Gracers’ to come and be a part of a growing and vibrant organization.

Breakfast is $8 per person, payable at the door. A signup sheet will be at the Info Table on October 7/8 and 14/15.

Our speaker for our October Breakfast is very special: Pastor Tim will tell us about his recent trip to Wittenburg, Germany, with the topic: “A Trip Through the Reformation.”

Your YOLO Committee has worked hard to bring a great season of speakers and events for you this coming season. We promise wonderful times of fellowship and great breakfasts! We hope you will consider joining us.

The following 3 YOLO Outreach Projects are so special and we look forward to them each year. They represent YOLO’s caring and generous hearts.

1. CHRISTMAS for two group homes for the elderly. We provide a Christmas party at each We start collecting donations at the October breakfast, and hope to meet or beat our goal of $1,500 which we made last year. We also go back to the two Homes and give them an Easter party with baskets for everyone.

2. We collect used clothing each year for 22 group homes for abused/neglected children that have been removed from their home for safety’s sake. The kids in these 22 homes have become our “YOLO KIDZ ” and we provide clothing for them from newborn to 18 yrs. Collect from family, friends or neighbors, and we will collect those and deliver them in February 2018. These kids need our help!

3. We collect small soaps, shampoos, conditioners, etc., for delivery in beautiful handmade Christmas stockings for those who reside in a Veterans home. Bring what you have collected to the YOLO breakfast in October or November. We hope to fill 150 stockings.

Our Annual Christmas Dinner will be November 29; a wonderful entertainer is already booked. You won’t want to miss this fun time. More details later.

And so…..there is indeed a lot to look forward to. If you haven’t returned to the Valley yet, stay healthy and drive/fly safely on your journey back.

We look forward to seeing you!
