Today was opening day for "Umtoo," a new outreach of Batavia's First United Methodist Church (see Wednesday's article, "'Umtoo' to serve city residents in need," for more info).
According to volunteer Sandy Kramer, they had a total of 34 visitors between 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. -- 21 were church members and the people they invited, and 13 were non-members.
Here are some pictures from the event, including some "sneak peaks" at free stuff and what Umtoo will have to offer:
Will and Julio (musical entertainment)
Volunteers Doug Niebch, Dorothy Taylor and Kramer
Some free snacks
A jar full of Bible passages for people to pick out at random.
Fiction and nonfiction books on a variety of topics
