Carolyn Ogden, president of the Campbellsville University Patrons of the Visual Arts, said, “One of the goals of the Campbellsville University Art Shop is to promote art in the community and introduce artists to the public, and the open house and Christmas Home Tour are great ways to do just that.” Ogden said many unique items will be on display that will make wonderful gifts.

The following message is from Megan and Rusty Watkins, coordinator of summer camps and conferences:

Our CU family partnered with us in prayer and in fundraising support almost three years ago to bring little Caleb home. Now it’s time for Caleb to be a big brother! We ask you once again to pray with us and for us as we wait for the arrival of Baby Watkins. We are using the same adoption agency that we used with Caleb’s adoption and also ask that you remember our future birthparents in prayer as they have extremely difficult decisions ahead of them. We have not yet been matched with birthparents, so we do not yet know the timeline of when to expect another little one, but we are finished with the paperwork process and are in the waiting stage.

As we wait and pray, we also eat. The total cost of Caleb’s adoption (including agency fees, legal fees, and travel expenses) was over $27,000. Would you be willing to eat with us to help raise money for our second adoption? Chick-fil-A Express is partnering with us on Tuesday, Nov. 13from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. We will receive 15% of sales during these specified hours. A “Spirit Night” coupon is necessary, but they will be available just outside the door of Chick-fil-A for your use. (See attached flyer)

Please share this information with your family, family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers. We would love to see you on the 13th! Caleb will be available to give “high fives!”

Lost phone

Andrew Tierranegra has lost his phone.

It is in a black and gray otter box and the phone is black. It is probably dead by now but if whoever has it has a BlackBerry charger or Andriod HTC charger you could charge it and call his roommate Cody Alley in his contacts. He last remembers having it in the H&W locker room.
