WAVE Update 7/5

Here's your update for the week!  Hope everyone had a great Independence Day! 
1.  This Sunday, July 7, WAVE will meet from 5:30-9:00pm for an extended WAVE special.  We will still do our regular meal, games, worship, and a lesson, but afterwards, we will be shooting off some fireworks at the church to close out the Holiday Weekend!  Two things to inform you of:  I have received permission from the Madison Police Dept. to have this event, so we will not be in any violation of the city ordinance laws and secondly, Roberta and I will be the only ones with the matches!  We want to keep this event fun and safe! We will be doing smaller fireworks and may have something bigger towards the end for a finale.  Pickup at 9:00pm.  Hope to see your student there! 
2.  Don't forget that next week we are going to a Mississippi Braves Game on Wednesday, July 10 from 6:00-10:00pm.  Meet at the church at 6:00pm.  Students will need around $25 for food and drinks.  Their ticket will be covered by WAVE!  Invite friends!  Drivers for this event are:  Brad Ishee, Courtney Simmons, and Tucker Olander.  If your student is in Sr. High and would like to drive on their own, I must receive notification from you (the parents) informing me that they can drive.  You can text me or call me to let me know that this is ok. 
3.  Trip Reminder:  The payment deadlines and signups for the Sr. High Beach Trip to Ship Island on July 19-20 are due next Sunday, July 14.  Please have your students payments in on time.  The trip is $200 if your student helped with one fundraiser/base price and $150 if they helped with two or three.  Make all checks out to Grace Chapel.  I have a record of who helped out with what if you have any questions.  This is a great opportunity and will be a relaxing day on an island off the Biloxi Coast!  Your Sr. High student will also be getting a postcard in the mail next week informing them of the trip.  There will be a meeting on Sunday, July 14 after WAVE for all students attending. 
4.  Lastly, stay close to your email this coming up Sunday.  I have a special announcement for the kids and for you as well on Sunday night at WAVE.  Can you handle the suspense? 
If you have any questions about anything, don't hesitate to contact me!  Hope you all have a great Holiday weekend.
