The PrimeTimers group at Arlington's First Christian Church, 910 S. Collins, asked me to speak about Ambassadors on Wed, 6/22. I will join the group for a pot luck lunch and then tell them about our group, our goals and accomplishments. I met the senior pastor, Rev. Andy Mangum, through the Arlington Resources Sharing Group and a church member, Mary Francis, called to extend the invitation to speak.
This church has some great learning opportunities for old and young alike and great service opportunities as well. They have a large community garden in the back of the church, along with a chicken coop! So their children get to see how their food is grown and the children get to help collect eggs and care for the chickens, just like some of us did when we visited our grandmothers or great-grandmothers when we were kids. My great-grandmother, Sally Means, had a chicken coop in the back yard in Walters, Oklahoma. I helped collect eggs sometimes and had to help de-feather the chickens for Sunday dinner (a smelly job).
