History Room

The History Room Committee would like to have the following information from those of you who would like to share:

Favorite Hymn: ___________________________________
Favorite Bible Verse: _______________________________
Your Name: ______________________________________

Many thanks! If you would like to help with the History Room, please stop by on Thursday afternoons at 2:00 pm. We especially need painters and handymen/women (to put up shelves and pictures). We could use some strong backs to move furniture. This is an ongoing project so come by any Thursday that you have some spare time. Thank you in advance!

And another thing… If you have in your attic or basement a quilt display rack that you no longer use or need, we would like to have it to display an item in the history room.

Please contact Bobbie Wright for more information:  828-628-2719
