Dust Bowl Ramblers
Music and images from the great depression. On Friday, February 23, Trinity will host a presentation of "...Whose Names Are Unknown," a concert of music from the DUST BOWL and GREAT DEPRESSION performed by the DUST BOWL RAMBLERS, accompanied by archival photographs projected on a screen.
The program will highlight how Americans never lost faith in themselves and how a new perception of government was born. The songs are tragic and hopeful, humorous and serious, and the archival photographs are moving and compelling.
Come to the chapel at 7 PM, Friday, Feb. 23 for a wonderful program, free of charge, made possible by the Sportsmen's Americana Music Foundation.
We are putting together a basket auction for this year's Gala in April and you can help us. Perhaps each week you buy a lottery ticket. Would you consider buying two instead and donating one to the Gala basket? Do you have gifts you would like to regift, unused items you don't like or use, souvenirs you no longer love? Perhaps they would look really good in a basket collections or maybe you have a great idea for a basket you would like to do yourself?
Here are some themes we are looking at:
1. A Lottery basket or tree (always a winner)
2. A Mother's Day basket
3. A Father's Day basket
4. Halloween basket (usually does well)
5. An All-season Holiday basket
6. A Boy's basket
7. A Girls basket (could gear it between girl and preteen)
8. Stationary basket (to contain stationary and perhaps books, pens etc.)
9. International food basket (Chinese, Thai, Italian, your favorite) or
10. A Money basket (donate money and you'll be surprised how much it wins)
One item or several. It is your choice. There will be a box labeled basket donations at the back of the church each week for the collection.

C.G. Jung Center: Women's Study Group
The Women's Study Group is having a productive and rewarding summer, continuing its study of Jungian Psychology by reading and discussing Jung's Map of the Soul (Murray Stein, 1998). It is hard to explain but there is something particularly meaningful about reading aloud and reflecting upon the words from a feminine perspective. Even a single paragraph can be enlightening.
The Women's Study Group meets in the Mission Room the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month from 7:00 - 8:30 pm. If interested, please join us. Contact: Arlene Miles at: Arlene@apswny.com
