United Methodist Women

June 20-22, Thursday through Saturday, we will gather at Marcia Hoyt's house on Long Lake in Harrison, Maine for our annual UMW Retreat. We can watch the hummingbirds zoom in to the feeder on the deck, listen to the loons calling across the lake, feel the cool water and gentle waves against our skin as we float or swim, and bask in the fellowship of a wonderful group of women enjoying time together. These are just a few of the enticements that draw us to this special event. Our theme this year centers around "God, Our World, and Me".

Would you like to join us on our re-treat? We have beds for at least 16 women, and more room if you can manage the sofa in the cool basement or a sleeping bag on the rug. There will be time for swimming for those who want to enjoy the water, sunning on the boat dock, relaxing on the deck, shopping, reading, doing needlework, talking, etc. There is laughter and fun, and the theme reflection time.

All women are invited! You do not have to be a member of United Methodist Women to join us. Cost is $30 per person--payable in cash to Annette Porter, preferably before the retreat, plus your own money for Thursday lunch at Marie's Restaurant close to Long Lake, money for shopping and possibly lunch on Friday and perhaps a local church supper on Friday evening. Bring your own sheets & pillow-case for twin beds or a sleeping bag for on top of the mattress, and towels. Marcia has pillows and blankets. Everyone pitches in to help in some way with food prep and cleanup. We try to make this as relaxing a weekend as possible!! Sign up on The Table in CUMC Fellowship Hall, or by contacting Annette at 508-653-3926 or arporter20@gmail.com no later than Sun-day, June 16th.
