**Announcements**

Check Your Voter Registration

Do you plan to vote on November 8? Are you registered? If not, the LAST DAY is coming just after Columbus Day holiday October 10. The deadline for address changes, name changes, etc. is Tuesday, October 11.
It has been reported that TWO MILLION names have been removed from the Ohio registered voter list! Be sure you and your friends and family can vote November 8. If, for instance, you have moved since you last voted, the application sent to you for an absentee ballot would have been returned by the Post Office to the Board of Elections, so your name would have been dropped from the voter list.

Crop Walk

Sunday October 23, 2pm.

CROP Hunger Walks help to support the overall ministry of Church World Service, especially grassroots development efforts around the world. In addition, each local CROP Hunger Walk can choose to return up to 25 percent of the funds it raises to hunger-fighting programs in its own community. CROP Hunger Walks help to provide food and water, as well as resources that empower people to meet their own needs. From seeds and tools to wells and water systems, the key is people working together to identify their own development priorities, their strengths and their needs – something CWS has learned through 70 years of working in partnership around the world. https://www.crophungerwalk.org/athensoh
