Ladies: we are asking for your help in decorating the tree in fellowship hall for the month of May. If you have an apron that you can share for this display, please bring it to Robyn Stender or Sandy Barclay by Sunday, April 24th. Along with your apron, please let us know the history behind your apron and also include one of your favorite recipes that we can pin on your apron. We thought this would be a wonderful display to help celebrate not only Mother’s Day, but the entire month.

Our church currently has two ukuleles that are for sale. They are Lanikai brand ukuleles that come with a music booklet, ukulele pick and a carry case. This is a great deal for $20.00. The ukulele is a fun instrument which is quick to learn and easy to play. If you are interested in purchasing one, please see Robyn Stender. At this price, these two will be sold fast.
