2015 - JUNE 10th PW MEETING


  Presbyterian Women’s next meeting is Wednesday, June 10th at the church. 

  As you will recall, we decided to go to St. Mary’s Altar and Rosary Salad Luncheon prior to the meeting.    Cost of the ticket is $7.00.  In order to get ahead of the noon “rush”, we have decided to go at 11:45 a.m. with  us gathering at St. Mary’s.  Please be reassured that the salad luncheon is optional.

  We will then go to Westminster for our regular meeting.  There is a possibility that we can meet earlier than  our  usual 1 p.m. time.  In order that all individuals who are attending the P.W. meeting and NOT going to  the salad  luncheon are notified, please contact someone in our group so we can call you that we will be at  church in  approximately 10 minutes (give or take).

  If you have any questions, please contact Pam or Helen
