The cold is here and the leaves are gone. As schedules expand and lists take shape, let the fun begin. It's an exciting time of year. Nothing beats the joy of this season with music, laughter, family, and celebrations. We kicked ours off with the Ladies Thankfulness Tea; a time to report on Community Blend and reflect on God's goodness in our lives.
The Ladies Tea received such a great response, we decided to make it an annual event. It's our way of pampering the women before their hustle and bustle begins. Over 70 attended, but 91 were registered to come. So we'll make a few tweaks, to this labor intensive program, and hopefully close that gap. All in all we were thrilled with the outcome and look forward to next year.
