The Bluegrass Gospel Concert work list came home last week. Please look it over carefully to see if you are scheduled to work. You only have to work at this every 2 years, so if you worked last year, you don’t have to work this year. If you aren’t able to work when you are assigned, please find someone to replace you and let Mandy Bonnema know that you switched. Thanks so much!

Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend one of the concerts. Your family gets free admission and this year we have 2 groups again. Please try to attend with your family so we can give them an Ireton Christian School welcome.
