The Red Hat Ladies met at Shelia Morgan’s home on Tuesday the 10th of April with 9 members present. Ruth Spencer remarked that Sheila served the most delicious Spaghetti she has ever eaten in her old life and she must have the recipe. They had bunny ears to wear even though Easter was over and they even ate their lunch while wearing their bunny ears. Leona always has some games or riddles for us and that was a lot of fun. 

Thank you Sheila for having us in your beautiful home. Those present were Rosemary Wakefield, MaryBeth Fornelli, Karen Springer, Karan Cannon, Leona Lovell, Sharon Sears, Carol Brooks, Ruth Spencer and the hostess Shelia Morgan.

The Hume Christian Church will be hosting a Sloppy Joe Feed for VBS on Sunday, April 29 at noon at the Church. VBS is always so much fun for the kids in the community.

The Hume Alliance Ministry Spaghetti feed was a huge success on Sunday. The day was a little rainy, but that didn’t stop people from coming out and enjoying the delicious Spaghetti and tons of delicious desserts. Several were lucky winners of the door prizes that were given away through out the dinner. Those door prizes were donated by various businesses and people. The dinner raised a little over $2400.00 and this will go to serve many in the food pantry. The Hume Alliance Ministry appreciates everyone who helped and all of those who came out in the rain.
