A new year for UMW – We’re getting back to normal after a busy time from Thanksgiving through Christmas. How we worked…. like the proverbial beavers! Not only did we accomplish our usual activities and projects, we took on a couple of extra ones. Most of our members could be found at the church almost every day of the week, working on one project or another, beginning with Thanksgiving Baskets through Christmas Baskets. Then, of course, there was the immense project called The Empty Stocking Program. Just about everyone in the church lent a helping hand there. Every Wednesday in December, “Soup, Salad and Songs” brought food and fellowship, plus entertainment to our Community that involved members of almost every organization within the Church, either working or eating! In December, we had a regular business meeting, combined with the installation of officers for the coming year and a Christmas Luncheon for members and their husbands and/or guests. Another event requiring extra effort on the part of the women of the Church was the lunch that we prepared and served to a Tour Group passing through Hemphill. We served 43 folks, plus about 10 to 15 workers. We charged $12.00 per person for lunch. We also offered our “Heavenly Delights” cookbook for sale and sold a number of them. It was a totally successful event. We decorated the tables and served hot wassail when the group arrived. It was a very festive, holiday treat for our guests. We think we want a repeat performance.
January has “zipped” by and we are now in the planning stages for February. Our first item is the annual dinner honoring our Church Choir. It’s our way of showing our appreciation and love (Valentine’s Day theme) for them. We are also gearing up for our annual rummage/bake sale Friday, March 2 and Saturday, March 3. We will be making announcements and requesting your items of “rummage” as well as asking for your donations of baked goods. At this time, that is as far as we have projected our activities. More to come in the next issue of the Newsletter.
Hemphill’s own Pineywood’s Pick’rs first Annual ALL DAY JAMMING and Soup on the Ground was a great success. Musicians from all over East Texas came to enjoy a day of pickin’, singin’ and eatin’. You always have plenty of food at a good “jam” and this one was no exception. Thirty plus folks in attendance played mountain dulcimers, fiddles, banjos, pickin’ sticks, autoharps, guitars, penny whistles, harmonicas recorders, a string bass, a dobro and spoons.
The “Jam” was held at First United Methodist of Hemphill. The Pick’rs are hoping to make this an annual event because everybody just had so much fun.
