Fall is full of changes. While change can be difficult, it often opens a door to new opportunities. One of our recent changes is the October 20th Hayride. Due to a scheduling error, we have changed the location of our lunch and hayride. We will be taking a Fall Color tour up to Fremont, where we will be eating a boxed lunch at Heritage Orchards, then taking a hayride that stops and visits the bison and elk on the property. Cost of the boxed lunch is $8.29, and the hayride is $5.00.  If you are interested, please RSVP vscholten18@gmail.com or call 616.913.4419 as soon as possible so we can get your boxed lunch order. We look forward to you joining for the Fall fun. Forecast is predicting sunny, 60, no chances of rain!!! 

We wish to extend a Thank you to all the volunteers as well as those of you who attended our Craft Show and Bake Sale. You helped us to raise $450.00!  THANK  YOU!! 
We will also have a booth at the Craft Sale at St. Isidore’s on Saturday, October 30th 9:00-3:00.  Please feel free to stop by and support YAH as well as our neighbors. 

Our Three-week Series on Prayer Styles, presented by Sr. Diane Zerfas starts this week Wednesday, October 13th at 10:00. You are welcome to attend any or all of the series.

Next week Monday, October 18th at 1:00-2:00 is the travelogue on India, presented by ‘world-travelers’, Mike and Teri Firlik. Lunch prior will be pumpkin soup and/or chili, salad, zucchini muffins and a Fall dessert. Cost for lunch is $5.00. Please RSVP if you wish to attend lunch and/or the travelogue. We want to make sure we allow plenty of space for comfortable safe social distancing.   

Lastly,  if you have not completed our yearly survey, please take the time to give us your feedback. I have attached a copy. You may scan and email your response to vscholten18@gmail.com; mail it to St. Alphonsus, 224 Carrier NE, GR, 49505, Attn: Young at Heart; or drop it off at the office.  We greatly appreciate your input!   Thank you so much!
