Katie from the Liberty Hill City council for events is here today at 11AM.  To talk about being involved in City events. She has a survey for the group.
Operation Liberty Hill (in case you are unfamiliar with them) their programs support our community in a variety of ways to include financial education, job training, financial assistance, clothing, and food.
I’ve been in touch with Operation Liberty Hill about a food drive. Their shelves are way under stocked at the moment. I thought that this group could help with that. They will be dropping off a collection barrel this week. I encourage you/us to bring at least one can of food now through November. If you would rather donate money/check we can do that also. If you write a check, make it out to Operation Liberty Hill, not to Over The Hill Gang. 

Has everyone signed in? Good, ’cause we want the city to know we are using this building.

CHANGE Wednesday Bible study start time moved a half hour to 2:30 hopefully that helps with traffic. 

We are still asking for your help to assist with meal preparation, just let us know that you are willing to help. 

Also help with cleanup and putting away after lunch is always appreciated. Many hands make light work

Who knows what’s going on here at Over The Hill next Thursday? Right Halloween costumes – not required but encouraged. 

Remember: Tuesday November first will be the time to create your fall gnome wreath. 
Some spots have opened up so, if you are interested, bring your $10, hot melt glue gun and some old panty hose to cut up. 
Those of us who are not making wreaths are still welcome to come and visit. We might even work in a game of some sort. See you from 9:30 until the last of us leave.
Wednesday, November second y’all are welcome to come for Bible study (new time) 2:30 to 4:00
Thursday the 4th we will gather for lunch and games.
And Friday the 5th – who can tell me what’s going on? Right POTLUCK AND GAMES
Did you notice the pothole was filled in? 
The day finally arrived: Forrest Gump dies and goes to Heaven. He is met at the Pearly Gates by Saint Peter himself. The gates are closed, however, and Forest approaches the gatekeeper.

Saint Peter says, “Well, Forrest, it’s certainly good to see you. We have an entrance examination for everyone. The tests are fairly short, but you need to pass before you can get into Heaven.”

Forrest responds, “It shore is good to be here Mister Saint Peter, sir. I was looking forward to this. Nobody ever told me ’bout no in trance exams. Shore hope the test ain’t too hard; Mama always said, “Life is like a test. ‘Cept you don’t if’n ya passed ’till yer dead.”

Saint Peter goes on, “Yes, I know Forrest. But, the test I have for you is only three questions. Here is the first: What days of the week begin with the letter ‘T’? Second, how many seconds are there in a year? Third, what is God’s first name?”

Forrest goes away to think the questions over. He returns late and goes up to Saint Peter to try to answer the exam questions.

Saint Peter waves him up and asks, “Now that you have had a chance to think the questions over, tell me your answers.”

Forrest says, “Well, the first one, -how many days of the week begin with the letter ‘T’?” “Shucks, that one’s easy; that’d be Today and Tomorrow!”

The saint’s eyes open wide and he exclaims, “Forrest! That’s not what I was thinking, but … you do have a point though, and I guess I didn’t specify, so I give you credit for that answer.”

“How about the next one” says Saint Peter, “how many seconds in a year?”

“Now that one’s harder,” says Forrest. “But, I thunk and thunk about that, and I guess the only answer can be twelve.”

Astounded, Saint Peter says, “Twelve! Twelve! Forrest, how in Heaven’s name could you come up with twelve seconds in a year?”

Forrest says, “Shucks, there gotta be twelve: January second, February second, March second….”

“Hold it,” interrupts Saint Peter. “I see where you’re going with it.”

“And I guess I see your point, though that wasn’t quite what I had in mind.

I’ll give you credit for that one too.”

“Let’s go on with the next and final question,” says Saint Peter, “Can you tell me God’s first name?”

Forest says, “Well shore, I know God’s first name. Everybody probly knows It’s Howard.”

“Howard?” asks Saint Peter. “What makes you think it’s ‘Howard’?”

Forest answers, “It’s in the prayer.”

“The prayer?” asks Saint Peter, “Which prayer?”

“The Lord’s Prayer,” responds Forest: “Our Father, Who art in Heaven, Howard be thy name…”

I get it. I get it. Come-on in forest

Prayer: Father, This meal is the work of Your hands. You have provided for us, again, and we are grateful. We confess our tendency to forget to ask Your blessing upon our lives, through the comforts that You have given us to enjoy. So many people lack these daily comforts and it is selfish of us to forget about them in their need. Show us how to make the most of Your blessing in our lives, for everything we have is a gift from You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
