UMW meeting

Hello to all the women who are ready to fellowship after the difficult year we have had because of the pandemic. This third Thursday in March brought the UMW back together and what a large gathering! It was obvious we missed being together to conduct business but especially to fellowship in person even though our smiles were behind masks!

We established the officers for the new year, received the report on Easter flowers from Patsy, and talked about having the Strawberry Social return this year.

The Easter plants will be $12.50 this year and must be ordered really soon.

God is ever present with us, individually or collectively. All women are welcome to join us on the third Thursday of each month. Although we meet at one o’clock, any day working women that want to be part of UMW, please contact Edie Bogart to see if we can establish an additional way to include everyone.

Thank You
