Hello from the MNSC Office

Composing the April newsletter reminds us that we are into the fourth month of this year. So much has happened: good memories, fun and laughter. We sit here as it rains outside, washing away the rest of the ice and snow. When you receive this newsletter, we hope we are looking at sun and the promise of all that spring brings us.

We begin our April schedule with a fun-filled program at 10:00 a.m. called April Fool’s Match Game presented by our own Debbie Hinderliter. At 11:00 a.m. we begin our Great Decisions lecture series with Brazil in Metamorphosis presented by Steve Cain. Also at 11:00 a.m., Margo Scheuring will host Table Games for those who may want to participate in that.

If you are interested in volunteering for any of the many tasks that help keep MNSC running, please stop by the office and let us know. And thank you to everyone who volunteers and gives so much to MNSC.

Spotlight on our employees. The Unleavened Bread Café welcomes two new staff members—Latosa Rhodes and Latricia Brown. Latosa is from Atlanta, Georgia, and formerly did clerical work. She loves to shop and is an active participant in her church activities. Latricia, an Indianapolis native, is a former prison chaplain. She has a passion for the jail and prison ministry and is active in women’s ministry at her church. They both will be helping with preparing the wonderful food served at UBC. We are glad they are with us. Welcome aboard!

Please keep in mind that we need your continued support by patronizing our restaurant and enjoying the weekly specials.

Tyranny in Indiana

Didn’t Queen Guinevere

Whisper in King Michael’s ear????

Fie! On the Knights of the Table Round

Who execute and hold their ground!

Who knows whose vote went when or where

How does our Lady Glenda fare?

Disabled in the royal share

And will she gallantly fight on?

Pearls before swine*

Our justice is gone!

*from the Bible.

The in-your-face poet of the people,

Mary Gillim
