Hello Everyone,

  February was an interesting month with every kind of weather throughout the nation and here in Marysville we are grateful for the moderate climate and encouraged by all the snow in the mountains that is needed to have a good summer. Change seems to be the new normal in weather patterns but we are assured that our God NEVER changes. What a relief!

Our UMW had an exceptionally nice General Meeting/Lunch in February with 39 adults in attendance plus children and child care providers. These meetings are always full of inspiration and this one lived up to our expectations with Lenna Mullins speaking of the value of hope and Vivian Riley, along with helpers, gave an entertaining and helpful explanation of Prayer and Self Denial. After Pastor Glen Raley gave the blessing we happily made our way to the baked potato bar. Another well done and enjoyable meeting.

 There is excitement in the air. Why? Well, I’m glad you asked because Marysville UMW will be hosting a District Meet and Greet on April 27. This is the first time in many years to have this take place at our church and is a great way to meet more of our fellow District UMW representatives. Many will come from as far away as Nevada and several different cities in California Stay tuned for more information and know that everyone is welcome to come to Executive Board meetings to discuss and make plans for all events. The next meeting is March 4 at 10am.  

Thought for the Day: People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.

Myra Wade,

Bonnie Shelton, President,
Vivian Riley & Carol Aldrich, Co-Vice Presidents, Lucille Figary, Treasurer
