See You in September…

Hyacinth2014_1985Ah yes… remember June? The Spring flowers were in bloom, the days were getting longer, and school and most church activities took a “summer break.”  But now that Vacation Bible School, Softball, and Camp Meeting are all but over, it’s time to start looking towards September and the resumption of our “regular” activities.

Here’s a quick rundown of some of these activities and of when they will resume their regular meetings.  As more details on this year’s programs become available, the Pages for each group will be updated and events will be announced in Posts.  In other words, “stay tuned” to the website as further information becomes available.

You can also check out the September Calendar.
