    Thank you Terri  Patchoski & MaryLou Vandorick for hosting our Wine, Cheese & Book Sale, last Friday.  It was a great success for fellowship and it also raised some funds for the church.  Terri & her mother, Mrs. Bauman have painstakingly undertaken moving a truckload of books into the hall, unpacking, sorting and then repacking these books.  See photo page.
