On Sunday, Jan 8th the United Methodist Women of Del Ray joined together for a “bring-your-own-lunch” and 1st quarter business meeting.

Linda Hottle as President and Penny Spinney as Treasurer were the UMW officers in attendance

Discussions were “open forum” to make plans for fundraising projects and events during 2017. Our first event will be March 18th, our Irish Supper and Clothing drive for Guest House. Flyers will be distributed at the Saturday morning Pancake Breakfast about this event. Last years supper was a great success and we plan on the same this year. Oh and by the way, the food was yummy!!!

March 19th, we will have a UMW Business meeting that will include Prayer & Self Denial (no lunch) At this meeting we will discuss the Oktoberfest Dinner/Bake Sale and any other fundraising ideas. We will also set a date for our 3rd quarter business meeting which will be sometime in September, with our final time together in December for our Advent Luncheon.

Proposed Events:
April 8th cookie baking in Lunceford Hall (a true fellowship event)
April 9th cookie sale after Services

May 21st, UMW Sunday with speaker Mandy Sozer (Mother’s Day)

It’s looking like a promising year for United Methodist Women of Del Ray

Blessings to all!
