A Great Opportunity to Contribute to the Silent Auction!
So you can’t think of anything to put in the auction?  Craig and Cindy Cox are putting together some gift card flower arrangements.  Just pick up a gift card next time you go to the store, and they will clip it to a flower.  What fun it will be to see how the bidding goes!  You can give your cards this Sunday to Karen Seyler.

Mark your calendars!!
