United Methodist Women
Once again the CUMW have joyfully finished planning and preparing for the annual Strawberry Social held the second Friday of August, on the 9th this year. Strawberries have been picked, volunteer sign-up sheets placed in the church, and ice cream by the buckets will be “on the ready” to be served by men of the church. Our fabulous biscuit maker, Leona Twiss, will supply the tender, light and fluffy creations. One year, we tried to “let her off the hook” by letting several volunteer to make them. Although it was not quite a disaster, it was problem enough for Leona to make all of them since!
There will also be a wonderful bake sale and often there are yummy garden vegetables ——if Mother Nature cooperates!
The rest of our meeting, we talked about helping our church decide on new ways we can put our finances to good use to benefit others of need.

Ragnar Relay, September 27th
Once again we will be hosting exchange for Ragnar Relay. Our church promotes good will and in return we receive a donation of $500. This year we will participate in the contest for most spirited. Our theme will be guardian angels. Last year we received $75 Honorable Mention for tolling the church bells! We will need lots of volunteers, cookies, and coffee so mark your calendars!
