Operation Christmas Child is under way
While many Redmond families are busy with holiday activities, a group of local volunteers is focused on filling empty shoe boxes with school supplies, toys, hygiene items and notes of encouragement for needy kids overseas. Redmond families are participating in the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind — Operation Christmas Child — an effort that has hand-delivered 86 million gifts to kids worldwide since 1993.
This year-round effort  — a project of international Christian relief and evangelism organization Samaritan’s Purse  — is coming to its peak, as local businesses, churches and schools prepare to collect gift-filled shoe boxes during National Collection Week, Nov. 14-21.
Participants can drop off their shoe box gifts at Word of Victory Church, 645 S.E. Salmon Ave., in Redmond, at the following times: Monday, 10 a.m.-noon and 3-7 p.m.; Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Thursday, Friday and Sunday, 3-7 p.m.
 Tracking technology  allows donors to “follow” their box to the destination country where it will be hand-delivered to a child in need.  To register shoe box gifts and find out the destination country, use the Follow Your Box donation form  at www.samaritanspurse.org/occ. For more information and for shoe box packing instructions, visit the website or call 303-745-9179 .

Kids can dance their way to fitness
Children ages 6-12 can enjoy Dance Fitness classes at the Redmond Area Park and Recreation District Activity Center on Fridays.
Kids will learn basic dance steps that emphasize the importance of movement in fitness and overall health using styles  from hip-hop through pre-choreographed movement as well as developing their own unique style during freestyle time. The music is clean, and the dance moves are athletic, age-appropriate and gender-neutral.
Sign up or learn more at 541-548-7275, or online at http://www.raprd.org/.

Comic art on display
Through the month of November, the Friends of the Redmond Library Art Committee will feature the work of Bryan E. Warner in the Silent Reading Area at the Redmond Public Library.
Warner’s show features four panels of illustrations in the “Frank Zombie P.I.” comic book. The panels include prints of the pencil art, text, and a finished hand-lettered and colored print.
A drawing for the four individual panels will be held at the end of November. You need not be present to win.
For additional information, contact Linda Barker at 541-312-1064.

4-H program plans rummage sale
The Deschutes County 4-H program, a local nonprofit, is planning its annual rummage and tack sale, and a craft fair. All funds raised will be used to maintain current local 4-H programming levels.
Clean out your garage of all those unwanted but useable items and donate them, or purchase a booth to sell your own homemade or craft items. Crafters pay $30; commercial vendors, $50 for an 8 x 10 booth space.
The event takes place Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 10-11, at the Deschutes County Fair  & Expo Center, Sisters buildings.
