Cancelled for Tomorrow! UMW Christmas Brunch and Come Together Service

inclement-2014-594

 

Given the forecast for icy road conditions on Saturday morning, we feel it necessary to cancel our Christmas brunch.  We wanted to give you as much advance notice as possible, especially for those preparing food and drinks.  And if you know others who were planning to attend who aren’t listed in the UMW directory, please pass this information on to them.

But the Cookie Tray Assembly will go on! 

We will meet at 11:00 to assemble the trays.

Also, the Come Together service has been canceled for Saturday, December 17.
