J.O.Y. Circle News

June 6, 2014

Our JOY Circle will join together on Monday, June 9 for a picnic to celebrate our great year. Members will be bringing items for the Food Bank. Our other mission project for June will be “Jewelry made by Grace”. Grace Gehlken, great granddaughter of Dot Holland, has created to way to help a little girl she met in an orphanage overseas. She makes jewelry and sells it. She sends the profits to her new friend. We will be given the opportunity to select some of Grace’s jewelry to help her with her wonderful project.

In May, Louise Tippett shared many interesting facts about the history of United Methodist Women at Fairmont. It was great to hear about so many dedicated Fairmont women. A donation was made to the Lunch Bag Ministry at Fairmont and items were brought in for the Ronald McDonald House at Duke.
JOY Circle meetings will begin again in September.
