Auction Will Benefit Mexico Homes Project

Nina Culver Correspondent
 

First Presbyterian Church, 318 S. Cedar, is hosting a silent auction Sunday to raise money to send high school students to Mexico to build homes.

More than 200 items will be offered for sale at the auction, which begins at 7 p.m. and is expected to last about two hours.

Proceeds will be used to send more than 100 high school students to Tijuana, Mexico, in April to help build 11 homes.

Items that will be auctioned include lunch at the Spokane Club with U.S. Rep. George Nethercutt, a picnic on the Palouse, rock-climbing lessons at Wild Walls, several vacation getaways, a concert ticket package that includes a limousine ride and baby sitting, various handmade crafts, and games.

There is no charge for admission into the auction, and child care will be provided.

For more information, call 747-1058.

Life lessons from folk tales

An “eldertales” workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 8 at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 4340 W. Fort George Wright Drive.

Maxey Megrue will present the workshop, designed for women age 50 and over. The workshop will use the discussion of folk tales to help the women attending to find out what they want to accomplish with the remainder of their lives and how they want to live.

The fee for the workshop is $10, and partial scholarships are available. Participants are asked to bring a notebook and a sack lunch.

The registration deadline is March 6.

To register or for more information, call 325-6383.

Westminster Congregational United Church of Christ, 411 S. Washington, will host guest speaker Dan Romero Wednesday at 7 p.m.

Romero is the general secretary for mission programs for the United Church Board for World Ministries. He will speak about mission work and what missions mean in the church.
