Dove Project Presentation at Fellowship of Christian Women

By Sharon Hayes

Ladies at the First United Methodist Church in San Saba are making plans for a Summer Picnic Luncheon next Thursday, June 28th in the downstairs fellowship hall. We give you a special invitation to come at 11:30 a.m. and fellowship with us around the tables. Our ladies in their 50’s will be treated this month, as well as guests, and they do not have to bring food. Think about some cold foods that could possibly be special at a picnic, and bring to share around the serving tables. A nursery can be available for preschoolers only, if you phone Sharon Hayes in advance, for arrangements to be made. Please remember to bring foods for your children, if you want them to eat during the luncheon time.
