United Methodist Women

Come. Sit. Stay. for our LIGHT LUNCH FOR GALS OF ALL AGES on Saturday, February 10, in the Community UMC Fellowship Hall from 12:00 pm to 2 pm. A special presentation, "Tea: The First Wicked Weed," will be given by Dory Codington, author and former Freedom Trail Park Ranger. "A visually rich program illustrating the material culture of the 18th Century and the social changes that led to the American Revolution."

The Boston Tea Party, hundreds of crates of tea dumped into the harbor that day! In Dory's words, "Tea was not the first English-made good rejected by the colonists…. As the colonists moved toward independence, it was women, as consumers of domestic goods, who made the choices to change buying habits, to buy American made goods, whenever possible, and to give up the pretty fabrics, ribbons and bows they had come to relish." Join us and learn more from Dory during this interesting presentation as she takes us back in time.

Tickets are $5.00 for adults, $2.50 for children 6 to 12 years, and children under 6-free. Please purchase tickets ahead from Adele Goldenbaum. You can contact her at (508) 358-3518 or adelestar1@aol.com. Contact her no later than Wednesday, Feb. 7. All women are invited to come and enjoy the fellowship, food, and fun.

As of January 14, our "Stocking Secrets" Fair net total was $7,750! That money has been relegated to mission work and outreach. Thank you again to all who helped in any way!

"Everything begins with HOPE and a DREAM." "Thank you for providing delightful stockings of hope and joy for the children of Family Promise Metrowest. Their eyes opened with delight when Santa arrived with them … at our holiday party. We appreciate all your loving care in selecting each item for all ages. They were enjoyed by our toddlers up to our teens. Thank you for this and all the ways your congregation supports our mission.
