It's in the Bag!

Its in the Bag

This Thursday, August 28, Celebrity Bartenders from The Episcopal Church in Garrett County will serve up your favorite libation and food at the Sand Trap at the Oakland Golf Club from 5 to 8PM. This event will benefit It’s In The Bag, a program to provide weekend meals during the school year for at-risk elementary school children. It’s in the Bag is beginning its 6th school year and will provide a backpack with 7 easy to prepare meals each weekend for close to 250 children in Garrett County. It costs $280 to feed a child for the entire school year and It’s in the Bag relies solely on donations and fund raisers like this. So come out and have some fun with us at the Sand Trap at the Oakland Golf Club. Tips and a percentage of sales will go to It’s in the Bag to help get us through our sixth school year. Sea you there!!!

More than 8,000 pounds of food were delivered in Oakland last Wednesday, which will be used in an ongoing joint ministry outreach of the Episcopal Church in Garrett County, St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, and Methodist churches of the northern end of the county. The churches’ members work together year-round to help feed children in the local area who are in need of regular, nutritious meals. The food was purchased from the Maryland Food Bank by Priority Partners, the health and nutrition arm of Johns Hopkins Medicine, and then was donated and delivered to St. Mark’s for use in this joint ecumenical feeding ministry, according to St. Mark’s pastor, Scott Robinson. It is being stored at the former Food Lion building, now owned by First United Bank and Trust. Truck driver Troy Barner is pictured at left, and those who assisted in the unloading, some of whom are pictured above at right, were Stan Grimm, Dave Moran, Mike Konski, Bob Dempsey, Don Forrester, Gayle Bachtel, Pastor Chip Lee, and Pastor Robinson.
