BUILD A BEAR
Members of Candlelight Circle had so much fun continuing the tradition of "making" bears & more for Methodist Children's home.
December: we are collecting toys for Operation once on a lifetime.
October31: Trunk or Treat was fun!
Thanks to everyone who donated candy for our trunk! A big thank you to Sue Roberson and Barb Shrewsberry who worked the UMW trunk with Barby. Many of our ladies were spread around the parking lot helping with many different trunks and activities. There were lots of happy children and smiling parents.
