Summer Fun


Summer Fun is a time for Ladies with or without kids to get together for fellowship together as they partake in local outings with each other. Tricia Dunning has organized an activity for every week of the summer. That list is below and can be found on our Calendar which include maps to each event.

From Tricia,
Come when you are able…it’s time for laidback summertime!  Bring friends to join us!  Pack a lunch and stay later if you want.  If you’re running late and you don’t see us, text to find us. (If it’s raining just text each other, we could meet at one of our houses).
