The Joyful Noise
Chugwater United Methodist Church

* Thank you dear Chugwater UMC people for attending the retirement reception, cards, gifts, and for the kindness and caring you have given me these years. I enjoyed working for the Lord, and you, and hope to remain in the area. Marilyn L.

*Thank you to Barb and Larry F. for providing iris bulbs for a new flower bed in front of the church sign, and to Larry for planting them for us. Also, the Ladies Aid donated money to the two flooded cities/towns in Wyoming recently. Great job.

Many thanks to Marilyn L. for her years of service to our church. We appreciate you keeping us in the loop when reports were due, when we needed to get news to you for the newsletter, or information for the bulletin, etc. We'll miss you, but wish you a wonderful retirement. Hope you get to travel, visit family, go see the world, whatever it is you'd like to do. Come worship with us anytime you are in our neck of the woods. Happy retirement, Your friends at Chugwater UMC
