Have you begun your spring cleaning (even though it seems to snow every day!)?  You still can donate your unused nice serving pieces:  platters, bowls, casseroles, pitchers,, mugs, salt and pepper shakers.  These items will be sold for $2 each at the “Spring Cleaning Tea” on May 21. 

Bring your donations to the Fellowship Hall 5-20.  This is a way for you to help an Afghanistan family:  Dad, son, daughter. And, of course, you can come and shop, too!!


Hope's Crafters will resume meeting on Tuesdays at 9am in the Fellowship Hall beginning May 3. Craft supplies and instructions are provided. Crafts will be on sale at Christmas in July this summer (July 19). Any level of talent and craft ideas are very welcome. For more information contact Meri Mengis 218-547-1161 or Renay Berry 218-547-3615.
