Excitement Builds

October 27, 2016


These models, Janice Gooch, Leslie Cure, and member Margaret Byers are “captured” enjoying a little down time the day prior to 2015’s premier event.  After chopping broccoli and onions and celery and bell pepper and whatever else was presented, these ladies enjoyed cutting up just a bit. This year promises more of the same… chopping and cutting… decorating and embellishing… cleaning up and gearing up for a fabulous time for the public AND the members.  You DO want to come and be part of a fun-filled day.  Call a friend or two, laughing is always more fun with a pal.

The 24th Annual Style Show and Luncheon will be held on Friday, November 11, 2106.  Doors open at 10:30, Luncheon served at 11:00 and Style Show begins at noon.  Tickets are $15 and are available now at the church or from any Methodist Woman.  Call Donna at 787.2183 for information or to purchase tickets.

Greeters Margaret and Wilmer Byers posed for our camera-girl before the 2015 Style Show and Luncheon got underway.   The Byers’s friendly smiles greeted each guest, welcoming them as they entered the fellowship hall last Friday.


The Grand Finale brings each model back into the Fellowship Hall following the second round of fashions.  The fifteen lovely models garner another round of applause as they circle the room, returning to the stage with final words from our moderator, Donna Alexander.
