Sandy Reed started what we call a reverse Hat Sunday. It started as a Hat Sunday and we would all wear hats like in the "old" days. The next year was the official kick off of Reverse Hat Sunday. Instead of wearing hats we brought in hats and mittens for the schools to hand out to children in need. This was done for several years. But this year we have a new icon - Captain Underpants! We are asked us to bring in under garments, socks, pajamas etc. and we will donate them to the Ellis House in the Presbyterians Church next door. There is a box at the back of the church for donations and we will deliver them after October 1st.
