The Volunteer Appreciation Dinner, held annually to recognize the great volunteers of the Senior Citizens Affairs Foundation (SCAF) is Saturday, Sept. 28.
Each volunteer, from the board on down, is unique. Some give their time to help every summer holiday during the Navajo taco fund-raisers and some give of themselves in helping to make the P/S Thrift Shop successful.
Wherever they serve and the tasks that they do, SCAF is humbled and proud of their service.
At the Thrift Shop
Thrift Shop Manager Rhonda Bossert would like to announce the arrival of formal dresses just in time for prom or homecoming. These dresses are gorgeous and can also be used for weddings and other special occasions.
There is one more benefit planned yet this year — Tellabration, Saturday, Nov. 23. Volunteers are needed to help with the exciting worldwide storytelling event. Help is needed to bake cookies, set up for the event, hand out fliers and lots more.
Volunteers are also needed in the shop for the fall and winter season.
If you are fun-loving, energetic, dedicated and want to help our communities, please inquire at the shop at the Community Center on Highway 87 in Pine.
Bossert would like to thank everyone who has given donations and shopped at the store during this past summer.

Fall Apple Festival and Antique Show
The Fall Apple Festival and Antique Show is coming to the P/S Community Center and Cultural Hall Saturday, Oct. 5 and Sunday, Oct. 6, sponsored by the P/S Business Community.
Besides the holiday Festival of Lights, this is one of my favorite festivals of the entire year in P/S.
It’s that time of the year when the “spirit” of the season starts to kick in, with Halloween just around the corner. The leaves are turning and the beautiful fall colors across the Rim are spectacular. The days are cooler. It’s the perfect time of the year for making caramel apples, baking apple pie and the wonderful aroma of chili simmering on the stove.
Why not enter your chili in the Chili Cookoff during the Apple Festival? You could win some great cash prizes!
For information, contact Mannie or Charlotte from Stage House Antiques on Highway 87 in Pine for an entry form, or stop by the shop in person for a great antique and specialty item browsing experience.
