UMW Day at the Lake Postponed

The Day at the Lake that was scheduled for September 8th has been postponed.  While many UMW members said that they would like to attend, most of them couldn't work it into their fall schedules, so the event has been cancelled for September.

Please watch for a new date to be added to the calendar, possibly in the spring or next summer.  And thanks again to Margaret Crawford for offering her lake home for us to enjoy!


Lunch Bunch: September 9

Do you have lunch plans on Sunday? 

If not, the Lunch Bunch invites you to join them at Paizanos in Downtown Norcross at about 12:15!
