Fennimore UMW News:
The meaning of December: “twelfth and last (by modern reckoning) month of the calendar, the month of the winter solstice,” late Old English, from Old French decembre, from Latin December, from decem “ten”; tenth month of the old Roman calendar, which began with March.
We are looking forward to our Annual Potluck on Wednesday December 4th. We will enjoy a delicious meal and then have a short meeting and create our cheer plates.
As the year winds down and we rush to prepare our home for the Christmas, may you find … “Peace with God, peace with others, and peace in your own heart.”
The UMW wish you all a Very
Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!

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!
