VALENTINE’S DAY DINNER
The Annual Valentine’s Day Dinner will again be held on
Friday, February 12 at the Landgrove Inn.
This has been a well-attended tradition over the years.
To get started, we need to know the number of people who wish to attend. This joyful event is for everyone; you just need to be yourself, not part of a couple.
Typically there is a choice of entree; the meals are great as are the desserts.
At this point we just need to know names and numbers so that negotiations on specifics can go forward with the inn keepers.
Please contact David Almond or Bob Kottkamp if interested.
Hearts Project and Hearts Distribution
On Sunday, February 7, the Hearts Project will be complete for the year. Many, many thanks go out to Nancy Hagge for organizing us all.
Many hands have cut fabric, sewed hearts, filled hearts, and stitched them up.
Now, we are looking for people to do the other fun part....hanging the hearts. We have 10 homes that we want to surprise.
On this Sunday, please stop by the fellowship hall to see how you can help. Sandy Peplau has the names and addresses of the homes.
