The Room in the Inn (RITI) season begins for Advent Saturday, November 4. We gather beginning at 5:30 p.m., pick up the guests by 6:30 p.m., dinner by 7:00 p.m., lights out around 8:30 p.m., up at 5:00 a.m. for breakfast, and back to RITI by 6:00 a.m. Clean-up is done by 7:30 a.m. with the Moss Room and kitchen set for Sunday activities. This RITI season is already getting exciting. Clothing choices are expanding (thanks Nancy) and after the first of the year the Boy and Girl Scouts (thanks Stephanie) are planning on preparing dinner one Saturday night as part of their public service activities. A donation box for Room in the Inn is in the Moss Room. When you are doing your shopping, picking up one or two items can make a difference in the abundant needs of Room in the Inn. Here are just a few ideas:
- Men’s new gloves, hats, scarves, coats, thermal underwear, socks, etc. for winter protection
- Aspirin, Tylenol, cough drops, etc.
- Toiletries: tooth brushes and paste, Q tips, tissues, etc.
- Condiments: full size or individual packets, plastic utensils
