For Dear Youth, Parents, and Volunteers,

Sunday November 5th we will be hosting a Chili Cook off. Please be at AUMC 9:30 am to help set-up. The Chili Cook off is a contest so we will need all hands on deck during event which begins around 11:30 am ish. We will be done cleaning up around 12:45/1 pm.  I double booked us, my bad.
