UMW Christmas Brunch
A great time was had at our recent Christmas Brunch. First off, we were entertained with a lively assortment of Christmas songs by the Citrus Valley Chorale, Lumiere de Chanson. A lovely meal was prepared by Carol Betancourt, Pam Tarter, and Joan Spangrud, and served by our FUMC Youth. A big thank you to the Youth and Director Shelby Nelson, as well as all the hands who decorated and made it a special day. Scott McDonald also provided a lovely background of Christmas piano favorites.
Following a brief business meeting and election of UMW Officers, Pastor Greenleaf installed the officers for 2020. Thank you, JT!
Fabulous door prizes were given out, as well as the $100.00 Money Tree opportunity drawing. The money raised by the tree was given to David and Margaret Youth and Family Services.
George Crisp led us in the Blessing of Food and the singing of Silent Night after the festivities. Thank you, George!
Thank you too, to all who brought children’s books to be donated to Children’s Services.
