Morning Announcements

Tuesday– November 6,  2012


Good morning, Morgan.    Do these words sound familiar?  There comes a time when we must heed a certain call. It’s time to lend a hand to life, the greatest gift of all.  These words come from the famous song We Are The World.  It raises an interesting question.  How do we “lend a hand to life.”? We can literally use our hands to do things that encourage life, support life, and affirm lift.  We can use our hands to create a garden or to feed someone.  We can use our hands to create a beautiful painting or an inspiring story.  We can use our hands to pick up litter.  We can use our hands to give someone a pat on the back.  Today, notice what you do with your hands.  Look for ways to use your hands in positive, healthy, life-affirming ways.


1.       There will be a fencing meeting tonight in room 10 at 6:00 for anyone interested in fencing.

2.       Reminder to all Interact members that there will be a meeting tomorrow, Nov. 7, at 7:10 in the Morgan library.

3.       Saturday, Nov. 17, the senior class will host an “Open Mic” at Malone’s Coffee House from 8 to 11pm.  Admission is $5 at the door.  If you would like to perform, contact Lenny Paul ASAP.
