Summer Plans for the Fairview/Fairmont Outreach

  • Community Summer Kick Off to be held June 7th with carnival games, magic show by Magic Steve and a picnic supper provided by LIFE of Northwest PA!
  • New games, “Picasso Tiles” (3-3 magnetic building tiles) and other educational toys will be enjoyed by the children on rainy days thanks to a gift from First Presbyterian Women. (Thank you FPC!)
  • Big Brothers / Big Sisters, sponsored by Family Services of NW PA will be taking the “little’s” and their families to enjoy a day at Conneaut Lake Park!
  • A Community Yard Sale is in the works for this month!
  • The Summer Federal Free Lunch Program for children under age 18 will start on June 11th. This program is open to any children under age 18 & children do not have to live @ our apartment complex.
  • Monday’s in July & Tuesday’s in June is field trip day! We’ll be traveling to the MARC for swimming, Woodcock for nature scavenger hunts & hiking, to Pymatuning to explore their trails, fish hatchery and of course to feed the fish! Who knows what other local recreational sites we’ll discover!
  • The children can’t wait for our weekly visits from Crawford County Drug & Alcohol staff who will challenge the children with games & hands on activities on how to “Make Good Choices”.
  • Maintenance will soon be hanging our new classroom bulletin board & chalk board donated from Stone UMC. (Thank you Stone UMC!)
  • Our seniors have several “Out to Lunch” dates planned at local establishments & picnic areas.
  • Our friends from Living Waters Church will be joining us on the lawn weekly for their “Sidewalk Sunday School” traveling van with Bible stories, activities & games! This is always a very popular gathering and loved by all the children!
  • Our residents will be able to enjoy outside grilling & picnicking at the new outside café area with new grills & picnic tables recently installed by maintenance, provided by the Corporation. (Thank you to the United Housing Corporation!) Many residents with this warm weather have already made use of this new area – whether visiting with neighbors, waiting for laundry to finish, or keeping an eye on their children playing on the nearby playground!
  • We’ll be heading to the Public Library on Wednesdays for “Story Hour” and continue walking to local ice cream stands for a refreshing cone!
  • Tuesday evenings in July our families will join the greater Meadville Community for “Summer Blast Family Experience” in Diamond Park! We’ll enjoy learning about “Champions” in the Bible and how we can be “Champions” too!
  • And going a little further to enjoy a Seawolves ball game in Erie (tickets provided by “Tickets for Kids out of Pittsburgh) and a trip to either the Zoo or Safari Animal Park are also on the docket for the summer.

Special note of thanks to FPC for their generous donation towards our transportation expenses – we’d not be able to take these excursions if not for your donation! It may come as a surprise to many, the number of our residents that these trips are the first for them traveling outside of Meadville.





Your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.      Matthew 6:8 (NIV) 

God’s Promise:

It’s not that He doesn’t know --- He just wants the pleasure of your company.
