              Women’s Fellowship Happenings

Various events are offered throughout the year to allow women to become better acquainted, meet new people, and fellowship together.  However, due to Covid 19 and concerns for everyone’s health, most events have been put on hold for 2021   These events would usually include our Spring Event, Summer Salad Potluck Luncheon, Holiday Craft Fair and Bake Sale and a Christmas Event which is scheduled for December 4, 2021. Please check this website for updates.  We hope to resume the other events in 2022.
