Hello Ladies,

Fourteen of us ladies braved even thicker smoke in the air to head north to Chico for two days of Mission u on August 10-11. We carpooled together, sang beautiful songs together, prayed together and had our choice of three different programs to study. It was an opportunity to learn more about spiritual growth, women in mission and money management. A worthwhile trip and then stopped at a fruit stand to purchase fresh peaches on the way home. Can’t get better than that!

It’s again time to purge your closets and garages of unwanted items as the rummage sale is fast approaching on September 7-8. Help with set up is needed starting September 4th.

The recent Bazaar Buddies meeting was filled with camaraderie and eagerness to participate as we sorted through projects both old and new to work on for the Bazaar in November. We meet the third Thursday of the month at 10am in Pioneer Hall. Come join us, you’ll enjoy it!

There will be no Executive Board meeting in September but will meet October 1 to plan for the October 6 General Meeting in Pioneer Hall which will be for nominations, elections and lunch. Please make note this meeting will start at 11am instead of the usual 10am.

Your UMW is, as always, ready and willing to help as much as possible when disaster strikes. We voted to give $1,000 to UMCOR for fire victims.

The Great Northern District Fall Celebration will take place on September 15th at Pioneer UMC in Auburn. Anyone wishing to attend this one-day event please see Marcia Davis for registration forms.

Thought for the Day:
T.H.I.N.K. is what I am about to say...
True? Helpful? Inspiring? Necessary? Kind?
