Have you ever petted a dog who has been to court? The ladies of Ruth Circle were privileged to meet Nanook and his handler, Cynthia Gevedon. Cynthia is a Greene County court appointed forensic psychologist who works with children, adolescents, and their families at Michael's House in Fairborn. The victims or witnesses view Nanook as a trusted friend who calms them as they retell their experiences to Cynthia, a law enforcement officer, or a judge. Nanook knows forty different commands. The most important ones for a courtroom appearance are to sit or lay still and be quiet.
Our December 12 gathering will include a choral presentation by the Tecumseh Character Choir. Everyone is invited to join us to hear this spirited group of third through fifth graders. The choir will be performing at 11:00 o’clock in the fellowship area so you might want to be seated by 10:50 AM.
Continuing Westminster’s/Tecumseh School partnership, the Mission Committee is taking care of buying clothing, boots, and other gifts for the six children of two different families with the profit from the Spaghetti Dinner. The Ruth Circle mission for December will be to purchase items like packages of toilet tissue, tissues, paper towels, personnel care items like hand soap, bath soap, shampoo, lotion, cleaning supplies, and drier sheets for both families. The washing machine detergent and dish detergent have already been purchased for both families. We invite anyone in the congregation to join us in this effort. There will be a decorated box in the narthex on Dec. 7 and Dec 14 for any items you wish to donate.
Join us on December 12 at 10:30 AM. The Character Choir enjoys singing for us! Bring a covered dish to share and plan on an uplifting enjoyable morning of fellowship !!!!
