June 19 –  REMEMBERING FATHERS    How did your father affect the person you are today?  Did he have particular traits or talents or mannerisms or ….?  If you are a father, what is it that  means the most to you as you relate to your children?  Come and get to know each other better.  Penny Hendricks will lead the program.
