9/10..The sun has finally found its way through the clouds this afternoon, and it’s so nice and warm. Been watching the news of the hurricane coming in on Florida. There will be so much devastation from that strong wind. We are keeping everyone in prayer and also for Texas residence. We took up a special collection today for help in Texas, and will probably do another for Florida next Sunday, if anyone wants to donate with us at the United Methodist Church, Just make a check to MUMC P.O. Box 184, Montgomery, Vt. 05470. Thanks so very much..it will be greatly appreciated OR if you want to donate cash and want to leave it with me before attending church Sunday, I will gladly take it for you!!! Thank-You!!!

9/9 &10.. Maggie Elkins enjoyed golfing this weekend with her sister Susie Ewins at the Enosburg Falls Country Club during the Annual Member-Member Tournament. Saturday was a bit cool and rainy for the sport and I heard Maggie was not prepared for that cold –wet day, she probably believed the weather man when he said there would be sunshine, IT DID come out once the game was over for the day. Anyhow it was lots of fun and that makes it all worth while. Hope you did well!!(?)
