KITCHEN HELP NEEDED
We are serving a lot of guests this fall at RMMC and need your help to make it happen. In early August, our head cook, Mary Yoder, broke her wrist. It is more crucial now, without use of one of her hands, that we have kitchen volunteers, to make sure that meals are prepared well and on time. If you can help in any way, please sign up! You can do so by signing up online or calling/emailing RMMC.

FALL CHURCH RETREATS
The season is changing. Long summer days are shortening and the air is getting cooler. The Aspen leaves will soon start to turn golden. That means it is time for Mountain States Mennonite Conference churches to start having their annual retreats here at RMMC. Five weekends in September and early October, RMMC hosts different churches gathering to enjoy the fellowship of their church community away from their normal places of worship. Be sure to join in with your church if they are headed up the mountain. It would be great to see you here!

Pictured: Tom Unruh and Ron Weaver continue the work on the new Goldmine benches. The benches needed to be rebuilt from the granite up! A Trex top was added to the benches to offer a splinter free seat! Retaining walls were built to help minimize erosion above the mine. Below are photos before and after the hard work of the volunteers.

YOU'VE BEEN SPOTTED!

We spotted Merv Birky (Colorado Springs, CO) with his RMMC sweatshirt blanket. He, along with his wife, Venita, were in Puerto Rico in May. Merv shares this story about the photo: “Took this picture at the Lighthouse Beach on the southwest tip of Puerto Rico. As we were gathering our things to leave a woman sitting nearby spotted the "Rocky Mountain" on the blanket and got all excited because her daughter volunteered with AmeriCorps after the fires last year. She wanted a picture, so we got one too.” Thanks, Merv, for sharing RMMC with Puerto Rico!

​Share your "spotted" photo with us. Email it to jenelle@rmmc.org.
