Wasatch is hopping this weekend!  What a blessing it is to have our beautiful building and surroundings utilized for so many wonderful events and by so many people.  Community is truly a life giving gift!  Tomorrow we have two fundraisers happening:

 

Come support the Sudanese community at their Rummage Sale from 8:00 - 2:00 p.m. in the Gym.  You will find lots of quality house ware items, clothes and small pieces of furniture.  There will also be a boutique of handcrafted items.  The sale continues on Sunday from 8:00 - 2:00 p.m. as well.

 

While you stop by for some shopping you can get your car washed!  Bring your dirty cars to our parking lot between 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. for the youth to wash.  The Youth are asking for donations to fund their summer rafting trip (suggested donation of $10 or more).  Come put them to work and support their summer events!
