A "Sewing Party" is planned for Saturday, Oct. 25 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in our Fellowship Hall to work on costumes for the musical.

So, if you're available, please contact Nancy Redding or Kristie Beals ASAP. Please bring scissors, extension cords, irons and ironing boards and we'll provide lunch. Thanks in advance for your help!
