United Methodist Men's Breakfast October 23,  2022

Wonderful food and fellowship at the United Methodist Men's breakfast this morning.

 "Let's talk to one another," expressed Dr. Theo Cramer, Superintendent of Schools for IOW County, during our well-attended Men's Breakfast this morning. As the guest speaker, Dr. Cramer answered all kinds of questions as he gave us an idea of his leadership strategies to improve our schools. His emphasis is to interact with the community and build relationships among people. He is determined to find new ways to unite residents, parents, staff, teachers, the faith community, the business community, and many other organizations to work together because "we all want good schools and good safe communities.

Pam Stagg Day Circle Honors Members

In recent months, the Pam Stagg Day Circle voted to include two dedicated and longtime active
members as United Methodist Women Honorary Members. Betty Lilley and Jackie Taylor have
demonstrated devotion to the ideals of the United Methodist Women through their attendance
at meetings and many volunteer hours in support of the Circle’s fundraising efforts including
bake sales, Easter Egg making, the annual craft show, and church yard sale. Previously, Betty and
Jackie were presented with UMW Life Membership pins. These ladies put their Christian faith
into practice over the years, and their efforts are appreciated by the membership of the Day
Circle.
