Hello Everyone,

Thirty women attended the June UMW General Meeting held at Sczchwan Restaurant. As in the past the food was delicious and it’s always a treat to be a guest, to have food brought to us and empty plates whisked away, even though for most of us our instinct is to help with clean up. That’s just the way we Methodist women are!

A short business meeting was held before the lunch and a vote was taken and passed to support those going on the Red Bird Mission Trip in the amount of $2,000 to help with plane fare and other costs. In a previous vote UMW had agreed to replace the Christmas Tree that is used in the sanctuary and a 12 ft. pre-lit tree was purchased for $700. We prayerfully believe these monies are being used wisely.

Bazaar Buddies got busy filling pretty red white and blue bags with usable items to take to our shut ins. The recipients of these bags are always happy to have a visit from the friends who deliver them. We meet the 3rd Thursday of the month at 10am in Pioneer Hall. Come join us and bring your ideas for the Bazaar.

It’s not to late to participate in the UMW Reading Program but the deadline is the last week in August. See our Librarian for more information.

Upcoming events are July 19-20, District Retreat, Mercy Center, Auburn, August 3, Mission u, Santa Rosa and August 16,17,18 Mission u, S. Reno. The next Planning Meeting will be August 5 (no Planning Meeting in July).

Have a safe and happy 4th of July.

Thought for the Day: May we think of FREEDOM not as the right to do what we please, but the opportunity to do what is RIGHT.
