Hey Karen,

good idea in keeping in mind to maintain our youth room clean and comfy.
We are the ones who shud wash and if necessary raise money to have it changed.
While we are on this subject, probably just want to highlight that there is church cleaning day once a year, and wud love to have every1 to participate.
Let's start participating once a year, and hopefully when thers a need, we can organize
another cleaning day.

As for curtains, shud we decide to have curtains, then you will request this to the church board,
and the church board will decide whether they have funds for it.

As for as I know, that is not included in our budget, it is more like maintenance or asset or something which has a budget of their own.

Upkeeping our Youth Room

Do you think that we should get curtains for our youth rooms? Remember that we wanted to get? is it necessary?

Also, do you think we should wash our cushion covers some times? (i think one of the cushions has Rachel's pee on it. Which one, I DunNO Man)

Hey quickly reply me. i need to send in the budget by 22nd night. That is thurs night. Then it's AENON HERE I COME!!!

i hate titles, once again.

Allo allo, fellowship of the book.

having been at the meeting (briefly) and reading karen's post, here are some thoughts.

For the youth outings,
i think we need to hear from everyone where they want to go. start a poll, tell karen or anyone else where you'd like to go with the youth, and together we'll try to make it happen.

Here some ideas:

-East Coast Park
-Johor Bahru Day-Trip?
-Pulau Ubin?
-Night Cycling? (Alternatively we could inquire if we could join up with jurong, whom i'm helping out with their night cycling trips)

But my only reservation is that i dont think we should get funding from the church for our youth social projects, if you know what i mean. for social gatherings, expenses should be from our own pockets so as not to tax the church further.

same applies to outdoor sabbath, please do give suggestions on locations and activites etc.

oh and just an inquiry, Whats AY?

anyway, honestly, i'm actually quite excited about some afternoon programmes like the visitation. i remember how i kinda looked forward to going for visitation till evening, then dinner with everyone, and finally games. i think a good afternoon programme would kinda make our saturday afternoons more meaningful.

so heres a new year ahead of us, and lets do something productive with this year.but last but not least, i think that as much as we can brainstorm, think and plan, what we HAVE to do as a youth group is to MATERIALISE our plans. and it really isnt by sitting around and lamenting about how someone else isnt doing it, but helping each other out to get the job done and lets give Karen all the support she needs.

signing off,

kablah. i hate titles.

this is the second time i have to type this darned post so i'll keep it short.

Allo allo! my fellow friends from your not-so-favorite talking head.

2nd December (for those of you without a calendar or who have no clue how to access your desktop calendar, its a sunday doofus), lets have a beach outing to sentosa! being a sunday, no holds barred fun.

oh and also it could be a "recruitment drive" if you want, we could invite the older earliteens to join us. calm down ralph. we could invite CBD and other respective numerical referrences ;)

so whoever's in favour of this idea, say "I", "you" or "him/her/shim", depending on whether you like to talk in first person, second or third, and your gender orientation (or disorientation).

and keep your imaginary hands to yourself. sick perv. honestly.
