Happy Birthday, Edna – July 24th

What can we say about Edna Mae Campbell? She is a woman filled with joy and brings so much joy to other people.

Edna has been a member of  HFUMC since September 14, 2003. Edna is an active member in the church – always serving with joy. In fact, Edna has been affectionately nicknamed “EJ” for Edna Joy.

The UMW Style Show has given EJ the chance to sashay down the runway with that certain twinkle in her eye. The audience waits each year for Edna to do “her thing”. One year, Edna modeled an animal jacket and slim black pants. At one point, she placed her boot upon a chair, threw her head back, and howled to the total delight of Style Show guests.

You can find EJ serving homemade ice cream at the annual Ice Cream Social. She wears a green and white striped hat that was purchased at a rummage sale along with many others. Edna sold the other hats and gave the profit to another of her loves – the recycle program.

This year, Edna entered the “Make a Bra” contest to benefit the Susan G. Komen march for a cure to cancer. She won 1st Place with a bra covered in VFW poppies – another cause that she supports.

Many festive parties have been decorated with items that Edna saves for every occasion. Her decorations have brought much joy to party goers just as Edna has.

Edna is generous and brings joy to all she meets. Her church family wishes her a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY on Sunday, July 24th. Thanks EJ for all that you are and all that you do for your church and for your community. May your birthday be filled with JOY.
