UMW “Mice Making”

The little green church Christmas mice (our fundraising project) are yearning to be assembled, well, you know how mice love to multiply!  So we’ve reserved the Fireplace Room for Tuesday September 22 from 10-12 noon and Thursday September 24 from 1 – 3 pm to meet and assemble.  Actually, our first session was yesterday and the weather was lovely, so we met outside at the picnic tables.  So we will plan to do that again and just keep the Fireplace Room as our backup in case of inclement weather.  Please let me know if you can come using the contact information below so I know how many packets of materials I need to bring.  Other than that, just bring a needle and some small scissors, your mask, fill out the In-person gathering health form in advance, and prepare to enjoy some long overdue socializing while we work.  If these dates/times aren’t good for you, let me know what would work and I’ll try to accommodate.  Thanks so much. Make sure you fill out the Covid Health Registration on our Washingtonfarmumc.org website for next week.
