Our meeting began with 14 ladies in attendance. The program for the evening involved packaging the Church World Service Mission Kits.
For several years our UMW unit has been able to provide quite a few of these kits that are used to provide supplies to those needing them around the world. Kits are made up of specific items needed for hygiene, for school supplies, and for baby care.
During the course of this year our ladies have been collecting the items for each kit in the hope of being able to increase the number of kits we can provide. This year we managed to complete at total of 42 kits; 13 health kits, 14 baby kits, and 15 school kits. Way to go, ladies!
During our business meeting plans were finalized for the annual Mother~Daughter Tea which will be held on Saturday, May 2nd from 2 to 4 PM. We hope that our church ladies, whatever their age, will come share this time of fun and fellowship.
No regularly scheduled meeting will take place in May so we’ll plan to gather again for our June meeting at Poochie’s home on Wednesday, June 3rd at 6:30 PM. As we always do to celebrate another successful year of the UMW, we’ll enjoy a potluck supper followed by a short business meeting, including election of officers for the fall season. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Tea!
