    Did you know we now have a "Sunday School" that is meeting in Mathews Cottage on Sunday mornings before the adult meeting??? Thanks to Bill Nunan, we now have a program for children.

    About our fellowship: As you know, our membership is high in quality, but limited in quantity. Please come to Sunday meetings whenever you can. More is better: more energy, more ideas, more hugs, more discussion. Your participation is valued. Hope to see more of you!

    Help Wanted. Marian Kerr has a newly renovated IBM Selectric and would like to know how to use it. Can you help??? She will pay for your time.
