Pumpkin Patch Meeting

A Pumpkin Patch meeting is scheduled this coming Tuesday, August 3 at 6:30 pm in the Fellowship Hall. Masks and social distancing required. This is an extremely important meeting; a lot of decisions need to be made and plans finalized. If you are interested a little or a lot, or if you are simply curious about your Pumpkin Patch, this is the place to be. Your attendance does not commit you to assist; however, if everyone helped a little, no one would have to do a lot! For the past 22 years God has blessed Clearview with an amazing Pumpkin Patch. This is your opportunity to be part of this blessing. Please call Judy Tenison at 727-522-1416 (hm) or 727-213-8400 (cell) with any questions.

Thankful Thursday – Food Truck Rallies

Starting Thursday, Aug 12 we will be hosting the Thankful Thursdays Food Truck Rally. Make plans to skip cooking and enjoy some wonderful, local cuisine from 4:30-8:30 pm near the Pavilion.
