Ladies,  join your friends for an evening of fun, fellowship and food!   The food and drink will be provided.  The picnic will be held on the patio outside of the cafe, weather permitting.  Please RSVP by Sept. 17th to patbarkell@hotmail.com.

In addition to food and fun,  we will be working on UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) Hygiene Kits.  These kits provide basic necessities to people who have been forced to leave their homes because of human conflict or natural disasters. Hygiene kits are also used as learning tools in personal hygiene, literacy, nutrition, and cooking classes.

We will assemble the kits at our meeting. If you are able, please bring the following:
