opportunity to develop meaningful friendships with other FUS teens and advisors.

We all scream for ice cream!
Come to the ice cream social!
Teens, if you haven’t ever
been to a Youth Group meeting, check out this sweet introduction to how cool
it can be. (sweet, cool, ice cream—get it?!) If you’re a Youth Group regular,
it’s a chance to reunite with other YG teens and let newcomers know what you
like about YG. We’re meeting Sunday, August 17, 4–6 pm, in Courtyard Rooms
A–C at FUS.
Sell soft drinks at
Taste of Madison & raise $$$$ for Youth Group
We need youth and
adults to sell soft drinks at this year’s Taste of Madison Festival over Labor
Day weekend. Money from the sales benefit FUS teens. Last year, we raised a
whopping $1,122, which paid for a bus rental for this summer’s service trip. The
festival is a fun event and you’ll meet lots of people. There are 5 time slots
for volunteering. Each slot needs 6 volunteers, including 1 adult. Sign up by
August 1 to volunteer at: Festival Volunteer. Questions? Email Kelly Crocker.
