UNITED METHODIST WOMEN'S NEWS
Snow everywhere last month – wasn’t it beautiful, especially if you were staying home and watching ii through your window. But now Spring is just around the corner and we’ll soon see budding trees and spring flowers coming up through the ground. It is Lent and a time of rebirth and renewal.
Our unit was very saddened by the death of Christine Hopple, our faithful secretary and very involved member of our unit for many years. She will be greatly missed. A gift to missions was given in her honor.
Our unit will meet on Wednesday March 3rd, at 2pm. The program will highlight an article from recent issue of Response Magazine. There will be a short informational time about the U.M.W. reading program. ALL WOMEN are welcomed and encouraged to bring along a friend.

Our local is —
