Parking Lot Break-in

Just a word of warning once again--
Another car was broken into on Sunday during the temple dedication at our Stake Center. The car window was shattered and a purse was stolen with several valuables. The police said that there are also numerous break-ins during wedding receptions and funerals because most women don't want to carry their purses in with them. Unfortunately, we've seen it happen in our own ward during church and Enrichment meetings. For your protection please keep your valuables with you or if they must remain in the car, make sure they are out of sight or in your trunk. This isn't an effort to raise fear but to be better protected.

Yard Sale

The Friends of Heidi Albiston (Tammy Nash's Sister) will be holding a YARD SALE for Heidi's family, in order to raise money to help with the costs incurred, while Heidi has fought brain cancer over the past 16 months. Her family has drained most of their resources and would be so grateful with any items, that you would be willing to contribute to the YARD SALE, such as (toys, clothes, etc) that you normally would donate to Deseret Industries anyway. The money raised from your donated items will go to a very worthy cause. The YARD SALE will be held Saturday, September 12th, at 700 East 9500 South in Sandy. If you have items that you are willing to donate please call Tammy Nash at 801-572-0844 and we will gladly make arrangements to pick them up from you at your home. Anything that we don't sell at the YARD SALE will be donated to Deseret Industries located on 700 East and 9300 South near the Sandy Mall.Thanks in advance for your generosity!!
Sincerely, Tammy and Glen Nash

Exercise class

Rachel Neeley is new in our ward and is offering the following wonderful opportunity!!

I wanted to let you know that I taught a strength training class in 3rd ward at our building(Steeple Chase) at 6am Tuesday and Thursdays. I plan to start the classes again Sept 15th. My plan is to include 2nd and 3rd wards in our building (stake center).Anyone choosing to join us will need 1-5lb hand weights and a yoga mat.I do legs on Tuesdays and arms on Thursdays. Stretching and Abs both days. 3rd ward is really excited to get going again. Also, If anyone has suggestions on different times - I am open, I want to use the time that works best for the majority. If there were enough that wanted a night class - I could do 2 different classes.
PS - I also have two glass bowls still at my house, left from all the yummy food - 1 is clear and the other is green with # is 244-5502 if anyone has questions or just come and get them.
