Can it be December already? Wasn't it just last week we were complaining about the heat? Or was that the week when we were doing the ThankOffering services and Holiday Parade?

Thanks for all your help and support for all our recent activities — Apple Dumpling Sale, Thank Banks, and Holiday Parade!

Our unit will NOT meet in January as weather is usually a problem.

Louise Gettle, President
