WIM NEWS from November's Board Meeting

We are happy to announce new members to the board for 2018 -- Anita Tiller as leader, Sue Goodfellow as publicity chair, and Jackie Hawley as our program book editor.  At the November board meeting we gave over $9,000 to missions locally, nationally, and internationally.  We discussed the need for some of our older history scrapbooks to be put back together.  We are looking for a volunteer to take on this task.  The board suggests each circle could schedule a meeting to work on updating these treasures.

On May 31, 2017, Women In Mission (WIM) hosted its 75th Annual Rose Tea.  There were 84 women in attendance representing 21 area churches.  One attendee represented the Tabernacle Baptist Church in Clayton, GA.  The program for the evening was "Music Through the Years". The trio, “Minor Miracle” (Jyl Secrest, Judy Guthrie and Angie Howard) entertained us with a selection of popular songs from 1913 - 1958.   A light repast and a three layer anniversary cake were shared as the group celebrated this milestone event.  The Rose Tea has been a tradition at FUMC, and has allowed us the opportunity to fellowship with the women of Union County.  Thank you to everyone who helped make the Rose Tea a success.  A special "thank you" to Carla Rine for her help in the kitchen.
