Sunday Supper & Local Gardeners: It’s a good summer for tomatoes! Dr. Aaron Kerr, church neighbor and Gannon professor has been farming the Gannon Goodwill Garden on West 7thStreet with students all summer. As the fruit of their labors began ripening,
the garden has shared cucumbers, tomatoes and apples with Sunday Supper guests. Another neighbor, “Mr. Blake” reached out to Candace Battles with more tomatoes to share. Dinner guests have loved the addition of fresh produce! We are grateful to our neighbors for sharing! Additional thanks to Dr. Kerr for choosing to prepare and serve a Sunday Supper in October with his Environmental Justice class.

Sunday Supper / Vaccine News from Pat Tracy: Vaccine incentives have been helpful in tracking vaccinated Sunday Supper guests. Erie’s “Home Team Vaccination Education Committee” has provided us with Country Fair gift cards to distribute to guests when they show us proof of vaccination. As of July 18th, 87 Sunday Supper guests have shown us their vaccine record and have received $20 in gift cards as a thank you for caring for themselves and their community. Additionally, as further incentive, two anonymous donors gave $100 and $50 to begiven away in a drawing on July 4th. Jenn, who has been dining with us along with her family for seven years won the $100. The $50 was divided into two prizes of $30and $20. David won the $20 and Chris won the $30. The photos at right are of Jen and David receiving their prizes. (Chris has not yet claimed his.)We at FPCC have been promoting vaccination and have taken the steps to facilitate that with clinics at the church. One clinic was held at Sunday Supper and two clinics were held in our sanctuary. The clinics held in the sanctuary were the most successful clinics held in Erie since the desire for vaccines diminished. The County has taken notice and is asking why these clinics were so successful. The answer to this success is all about the relationship FPCC has with the Our West Bayfront Neighborhood. So many from this congregation have helped reach out to our neighborhood in a varietyof ways over the past ten years. Because of this, relationships have been formed and trust and familiarity have grown, therefore the neighborhood is comfortable coming to the church for a vaccine. Thank you to all who have helped build these relationships, and consequently, helped save the lives of our neighbors.
