February is a slow month for the UMW. However, we are looking forward to March and entertaining at Good Sam for the March Birthdays! Tuesday March12th from around 1 —2:30 PM we need 5-6 volunteers to help watch the cards as numbers are called, hand out prizes (quarters) and serve a treat. Not a hard job and the residents love playing Bingo and of course the angel food cake and punch!
Please call me (Kim Cathman) if you can help 822-3196.
ALSO … Check out the bulletin board on your way to Coffee Hour. We have our updated schedule for 2019 in a pocket folder. If it’s empty, let Chelsea or I know and we’ll get more printed. AND the January District UMW Newsletter is posted there. It includes a UMW district calendar as well as other news from around our district. If you wish a to have a copy, just take it down and make a copy of the pages you want or you can go online to our churches website under UMW News and link to it there. There is a lot going on in our area and it also gives you list of the district officers and sister churches!
Well, stay warm and remember Spring is just around the corner — March 21st.

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!
