TUESDAY LADIES CLASS COMING SOON

     Class meets each Tuesday, 10:00 -11:30, until November 16th. (No class during school breaks).  Childcare for preschool children is provided. Please make your plans to join us. If you have questions, see Sue Underwood, Janice Greenleaf, or Terri Apgar.

Everyone is invited to come and see the Elementary Summer Program Presentation THIS Wednesday night, September 1st, during our class time at 7:00 p.m. in the old auditorium.

THANK YOU, ELEMENTARY STUDENTS

We would like to thank all of the elementary students in our Summer Program for the “goodie bags” that we received. We appreciate your thoughtfulness and love.

Love,

Jon and Pat Canterbury
