NCLC Harvest Carnival

Re : 2009 NCLC Harvest Carnival

To Whom It May Concern,

On behalf of New Covenant Life Church in Koblerville, I would like to ask for your help with our “Harvest Carnival,” scheduled for October 31st 2009.

Our Church is located in the former “Pacific Castle” building just across the street from Coral Ocean Point Hotel/Golf Course. We are a culturally and socially diverse body, with a large percentage of our congregation being bright and talented youth from all over the island.

This year we are celebrating our 2nd annual Harvest Carnival as an alternative to Halloween. Our Carnival will serve as an annual gathering for the entire community, and a safe alternative to trick or treat. We will have lots of free carnival games for the community as well as free entertainment for all.

I am kindly asking if you would you consider donating cash or prizes for our Carnival?

A current list of items we need donated include :
Drinks (Soda, Juice, Water)
Candies (Prizes for booths/Trick-or-Trunk)
Prizes (for free game booths)
Balloons (All sizes)
Monetary Donations (of any amount) will also be accepted for use with purchasing items needed for games booths (which will be free to the public), snack booth, entertainment and other incidentals.

We hope to count you among our supporters, and thank you for your consideration of this request. For more information, please contact me at 234-6442 or 788-6241 or you can leave me a message here!

Appreciate it!!!!!!!

Kind Regards,

Tamara Hunter

From the Division of Environmental Quality:

Hundreds of volunteers throughout the CNMI are expected to clean their beaches next month as part of the world’s largest volunteer cleanup effort.The 24th annual International Coastal Cleanup is Saturday, September 19 – from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Everyone is invited to participate. Saipan and Tinian are scheduled to participate on September 19, and Rota’s event is on Friday September 18.On Saipan, a number of groups have already adopted beaches, including South Lao Lao and Cow Town, according to the Division of Environmental Quality. However, dozens of other beaches still need volunteers.Several groups are working together to coordinate events on Saipan and Tinian, and the Coastal Resources Management Office is taking the lead on Rota.The International Coastal Cleanup is the world's largest volunteer effort to help protect the ocean, according to the Ocean Conservancy, a nonprofit organization dedicated solely to protecting ocean environments and marine life.Last year, nearly 400,000 volunteers hit their local beaches, lakes, and rivers with a common mission of improving the health of the ocean and waterways. On one day, they removed and tallied 6.8 million pounds of debris, from 6,485 sites in 100 countries and 42 U.S. states and the District of Columbia.DEQ will retrieve and properly dispose of the trash collected from the cleanup on Saipan.Cleanup supplies – garbage bags and gloves which were purchased with funds from a generous Bridge Capital donation – will be available at DEQ the week before the cleanup.Interested participants are encouraged to sign up for the event so that organizers may arrange for proper pick up and disposal of garbage.To request a signup sheet for Saipan or Tinian, contact Lisa Huynh Eller, Olivia Tebuteb or Carlos Ketebengang, DEQ, at 664-8500 or email - lisaeller@deq.gov.mp. For information about Rota’s event, contact William T. Pendergrass, ICC Coordinator, or MJ Taisacan, CRMO Administrative Clerk, at 532-0466 or fax 532-1000.

The Return of the Children

The kids are back!!! After spending almost the entire summer in the states with their father, they are back..and life is beautiful! I honestly missed the sound of them arguing, running through the house, throwing the ball at the wall, playing their uke at the wee hours of the morning, blasting their ASWAD all day long and most especially I missed the piercing yells of "MOMMA" every time they needed something.

and in somewhat related news..in approximately 36 days I will be the CNMI's latest GLAM-MA!Can't wait, can't wait..baby Zion on the way!
