Fennimore UMW News:
No Foolin’ … Spring is finally here!
Happy April, everyone!
The March Birthday Party and Bingo went well last month at Divine Rehabilitation and Nursing. Thank you to all the ladies who helped. The residents appreciated your smiling faces and the treat!
I hope you were able to attend our first Quarterly Meeting on March 28th. It was good to be
together for fellowship. It’s been a long time since our potluck Christmas meeting in early
December. Our next Quarterly Meeting is the last Wednesday in June. Hope you can make it.
Volunteers and Bakers Needed!
April holds something new for us. The UMW and the church Youth are combining forces and providing a food stand for John Draggs’ auction on April 13th.
John has sold his farm and will be moving to Arkansas to be near his children. We will surely miss him, but know the importance of being with family. Many blessings John.
That being said, we need volunteers to help that day and also are asking the ladies of the church to make desserts for the sale. We need Brownies, Rice Krispie Treats, Bars or Cookies.
We will be prepping for the sale on Friday, April 12th at the church and if you could bring them UNCUT, we will cut and wrap them individually to take the next day. (your pans will not go to the sale). If you can help, please put your name on a sign up sheet we will have on the UMW bulletin board near the fellowship hall or call one of the UMW officers.
If you can help the day of the sale please sign up as well or call one of the UMW officers:
Kim Cathman 822-3196
Judy Nelson 822-3355
Lori Budzinski 822-6727
Audrey Doan 822-6527
Save the Date!
Calling all aprons!
Dig out your moms apron!
The Mother Daughter Banquet is Saturday evening, May 11. Tickets will be for sale on the three Sundays before, April 21st, 28th and May 5th. Cut off day is May 5th. Our theme centers around “Mom’s Apron” and we do have a short program with a speaker, Tracey Atkinson from BMZ. The menu is being finalized and we will let you know soon. I think there is Apple something involved!?!?
Enjoy this wonderful weather.
A kind word is like a spring day.

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!
