Valentines from the heart
At its monthly meeting on Feb. 10, the United Methodist Women created Valentine cards from a table filled with hearts, ribbons, lace, glue sticks and rubber stamps with messages of endearment.
When the hand-crafted Valentines were completed, following some careful scrutiny, they were mailed to members of the church and community who have a difficult time getting out at this time of the year.
Prior to the card-making session and its monthly lunch together, the women gathered in the chapel for a time of reflection and prayer to honor Joanne Scontras, a longtime member of the UMW who passed away on Feb. 2.
The UMW’s next meeting is Tuesday, March 10 at 1 p.m. in Fellowship Hall. All women of the church and their friends are invited to attend.
