LADIES AID NEWS
By Deb H.
The Chugwater Ladies Aid will be very busy this month with our annual deep cleaning of the church. We'll start out on June 9, at 10:00 a.m. with a coffee cake and coffee just to get our strength up. Then we'll break into the upstairs and downstairs teams and clean everything under the sun until it shines. Then we'll enjoy a potluck lunch and strawberry shortcake. We'll do a turn at keeping the church clean for the rest of the month. If cleanliness is next to Godliness, we're all over it!
The Ladies Aid also made a donation to the Lander and Riverton UMC's to help with their flood cleanup.
GOOD THINGS HAPPENING
ADMINISTRATIVE COUNCIL NEWS
Andrea W. and Irma B. collaborated to make new white altar clothes. Irma donated the material and Andrea sewed them up. They are lovely.
Chugwater's Memorial Day activities were discussed. The Memorial Day Service will be at 10:00 a.m. at the cemetery, preceded at 9:00 by a 21-gun salute at the Memorial in town. A dinner will be provided after the service, and a free will donation will be collected. There was a consensus to allow the community choir to practice at the church.
The Council approved the use of the church in case the school needs to be evacuated for any reason.
Summer activities were discussed including a potential picnic at Small's ranch with the Wheatland church, an ice cream social for the whole community, scraping and painting the local library, and the kids' Crafting Corner at the Chugwater Chili Cook-Off.
After a discussion about the Quiet Disciple, it was decided the whole congregation should be nominated rather than individuals. In a church as small as ours, everyone wears many hats and makes sure the work is done.
