Fennimore UMW News:
June is the gateway to summer and I think we are all ready for summer weather!
The Mother Daughter Banquet is past news but the THANK YOU’S are not. The meal was catered this year by Ma’s Bakery and that took care of some of the work, BUT … at least 18 pies were made by only one person! Thank you Jackie Werhle, they were delicious. You are amazing!
Thank you to all the guys for taking care and serving us our meal. AND cleaning up!
And a HUGE thank you to Katie Oyen, she stepped in at the last minute when our speaker cancelled due to illness and we so enjoyed hearing your story. We are truly blessed to have you as part of our church family. And to all the ladies who shared and even wore their aprons. I marveled at all the gingham ones and the older ones. Marlene Everson’s handmade and embroidered one from when she was 3 or 4 year old was so darling.
Dates in June to Remember …
Thursday the 13th – we serve the VBS meal. If you would like to help, let Kim know.
Wednesday the 26th – our quarterly
meeting ** the Stitzer UMW are serving a meal that evening and some of us as a group would
like to attend!
The cost is 10.00 each and we thought we’d go around 5 pm and enjoy their meal and
fellowship and then return to a short meeting at Fennimore UMC after. We can meet at the
Fennimore church parking lot and ride share if that would work for some. We should be done and back for our meeting by 6:30 for those who do not wish to go to Stitzer. Please give me a call if you would like to join us.

Scheduled for the 3rd Tuesday of each month to work on Mission projects. Creation days are held in Fellowship Hall once a month. We spend the day working on quilts and other sewing projects. The finished projects will be used as gifts, Mission donations, or sold to support mission work. This event has been going well. We can always use more volunteer workers. Last year we gave away or sold 45 plus quilts. Remember: 3rd Tuesday of each month at 9:00. Come and join us! If you can tie a knot you can help us. So, if you like to sew and you would like to be apart of this wonderful monthly event, please feel free to stop in on the scheduled days.
ALL women of the church (members and friends) are a part of this new beginning Unit of the Fennimore United Methodist Women. We will continue our work at the Depot Exchange on the 2nd Monday each month. We start at 2:00 PM then food and fellowship at Friederick’s. We are looking forward to seeing many new faces at our scheduled meetings this year. Let’s all get together and make it a banner year for FUMW.
Thanks to all of you for your support!
