Four Photos and Stories About What We Did in September


NPC Fall Kickoff
Norton Presbyterian Church had a Fall Kick Off Celebration. It began with an impressive service on the lawn that included a twenty-member choir and eight musicians. Afterwards, everyone enjoyed lunch, and just being with people again. It was an especially fun time for families with little kids.

Russ Brine
Russ Brine, Founder of the St. John Bosco Education Trust, visited with members of St. John Church. It had been two years since he was last here. He thanked the many donors who have helped 50 students in Kitale, Kenya to go to good boarding schools. Fund raising for school fees for 2022 will start in November. You can contact marilyn@theparkerplace.org with questions.

Friends in Mystic
We went to Mystic, home of Mystic Pizza (remember the movie?), to join friends for lunch by the water. We have known the couple for several years but just learned that they are from Parma, the same suburb of Cleveland where John grew up.
