“The Artist’s Way”
St. Anne’s Parish Hall
All are welcomed in this continuing series of conversation, fellowship and snacks!
The Dinner Groups are in full swing, and there are 3 groups who have been gathering for dinner once a month and will continue to do so through the summer. Probably sometime in July or August, these groups will form new groups and welcome those who are interested to join them. So please consider being a part of a group of St. Anne’s parishioners who get together once a month to share a meal, build community, and grow in our faith and knowledge of God. The groups usually include 7-8 people, hosted by members of the group. Each person or couple brings a dish to share for dinner and the groups decide which night they would like to gather. Dinner groups are an excellent way to get to know other parishioners and form friendships beyond the walls of the church. If you would like to participate, a signup sheet will be in the Parish Hall by the Vestry Bulletin Board. Any questions, please contact Beverly Gosnell at 336—760-3621 or by e:mail to email@example.com or Woody Clinard at 336—924-2258. Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you!

SUBJECT: ARE TREES THE NEW COAL?
DATE: TUESDAY, MAY 21, 2019 – 7:00PM – 9:00PM
FILM: “BURNED” with Discussion to Follow
WHERE: Temple Emanuel, 201 Oakwood Drive
A film for anyone who cares about forests.
BURNED: Are Trees the New Coal? is a feature-length documentary, which takes an unwavering look at the latest energy industry solution to climate change. The film tells the story of how woody biomass has become the fossil-fuel industry’s renewable, green savior, and of the people and parties who are both fighting against and promoting its adoption and use.
Through interviews with activists, experts, and citizens, along with verité-style footage shot across the U.S. and in the EU and UK, the film interweaves the science of climate change, the escalating energy-policy disputes, the dynamics of forest ecology, the biomass industry practices, the conflict between jobs and trees, and the actions of activists and citizens who are working to protect their own health, their communities, the forest, and the planet’s climate.
Woven together, the various stories present an intimate and visceral account of what is at this moment in time a critical, yet mostly unknown, national and international controversy.
It’s time to mow the church lawn again. If you can help, please add your name to the sign up sheet on the Buildings and Grounds Bulletin Board over the table by the Vestry Room. Thank you for Buildings and Grounds!
END-OF-YEAR BOOK DRIVE FOR OLD TOWN SCHOOL
(a.k.a. F.O.R.E. Book Drive)
WHAT’S THE HISTORY? For over 15 years, St. Anne’s has joined with neighboring churches to make certain every student at Old Town School receives the cherished gift of a new book at the end of the school year.
WHY OLD TOWN? 99% of the students at Old Town qualify for free breakfast and lunch. For many of the students, book ownership can be rare and Summer Slide in reading skills is real.
WHAT’S ST. ANNE’S PART? A new book for each 5th grade student (93 students, including 19 students in a bilingual class who are bi-literate in English and Spanish)
WHAT BOOKS? Culturally responsive books, i.e., books with characters who look like the Old Town student population which is mostly African American and Latino/a. For your convenience, below is a link with a list divided into books with African American characters, books with Latina/o characters, and books in Spanish (for the bilingual students).
WHAT’S ON THE LINK? The link lists books on an Amazon Wish List: http://bit.ly/OldTownBooks
If you purchase with this method, the books will be sent directly to the church. Or you can look at the Wish List and purchase books locally. Hard copies of the book list are available on the Outreach table in the Parish Hall. Checks also are welcome (made out to St. Anne’s with OT Book Drive in the memo line) and books will be purchased for you.
WHAT’S THE DUE DATE? Sunday, May 26, 2019
THE OUTREACH COMMITTEE THANKS YOU
FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF THIS IMPORTANT MINISTRY!

What Can We Do About Childhood Hunger in Winston-Salem?
Thursday, May 16, 7 pm, Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall
One in five children in North Carolina goes to bed hungry. Learn more about food insecurity in our state, and specifically in Winston-Salem – and how you can make a difference.
Two short films will be shown, followed by discussion to be led by local community leaders from SHARE and the “Think Orange” campaign to combat hunger in Winston-Salem.
FREE and open to the public.
Orange is the color that Hadiya Pendleton’s friends wore in her honor after she was shot and killed in Chicago at the age of 15. Since then orange has been the defining color of the gun violence prevention movement. In her memory and to raise awareness about the issue of gun violence, Moms Demand Action celebrates a Wear Orange event every June. Join the Winston-Salem Moms Demand Action group and members of our community for a Wear Orange picnic. In addition to enjoying some great food, drop by the Be SMART table, the Moms Demand Action Table, the Students Demand Action table, and the table that honors Survivors of gun violence. There will be information available for all those interested.
WHEN: Saturday, June 8th at 11 am
WHERE: Rupert Bell Community Center
1501 Mount Zion Pl
Winston Salem, NC 27101
Don’t forget to drop off canned tuna, chicken, and fruit cups into the basket in the connector for our friends at Friends Food Pantry. Thanks for supporting this local ministry and the many folks served by it.
