U.M.W. Activities & News

Fennimore UMW News:

JULY – The 3rd quarter of the Year begins with July. The month’s name was a nod toward, and in honor of, Julius Caesar. It was named by the Roman Senate in honor of Roman general Julius Caesar, it being the month of his birth.


The seventh Full Moon of the year is popularly known as the Buck Moon, the Wort Moon or the Hay Moon.


Welcome to the HOT part of summer this week!  So glad the city pool is opening … regardless of the limitations, it will refresh some.


UMW officers met shortly in June, in place of our Quarterly meeting.   NOTE: August will not see our Salad Luncheon being held. We have decided to pass with the COVID-19 stats rising.  We all miss seeing each other, but it is best we ‘be safe’ at home for a while longer.


Let’s pray we can have our September Quarterly meeting.  Wednesday, September 23rd at 6:30 PM.


Stay cool with this recipe!

Creation Days

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.

Please Note

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!
