WEST DISTRICT ANNUAL CELEBRATION – Five of our leadership team travelled to Epworth UMC, Phoenix for our annual celebration: Susan, Marion, Marty, Jackie and Judy. We took care of district business, including voting for our 2020 slate of officers, fellowshipped, and ATE (we ALWAYS have food! See below!). Included in our closing communion service was a memorial service for those we lost this year, including our own Marcella Parrot, Ruth Reeves, Carol Armstrong, Doris Raper and Ruth Cook. Lakeview United Methodist Women received our 5-Star Mission Award (we completed all five areas of mission giving) AND were selected for Honorable Mention for District Unit of the Year (of 19 active units). CONGRATULATIONS, LAKEVIEW LADIES!
The WINTER WONDERLAND CRAFT FAIR was well attended by both vendors (74 tables! Though not all had an actual “table”!) and many folks looking to get that perfect gift! Such a wide variety of crafts, from wood, to stitched/crocheted/knitted, to plants and jewery and cards and wreaths . . . and the smell of CHILI wafting through it all! (Of course there was food!). Santa and Mrs. Claus attended, bring their sled and one of their reindeer for picture opportunities. It was a fun day! Thanks to JACKIE MOBED and MARVA FIFE for all their hard work!
The FALL ANNUAL SALAD LUNCHEON was attended by 50 members and guests. We took care of business and Judy Houdek shared a reading on what the Bible says about being healthy before enjoying many choices of salads (and cheesecake for dessert!). The program of the day was learning about the origins, form and benefits of Tai Chi Chu’an, followed by a demonstration of the three “sections” of tai chi movements, performed by Nancy Zingg’s Tai Chi class. A very Zen and relaxing program!
MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
