---- — Be sure to put Saturday, Oct. l9 on your calendar.

WoMen Just Want to Have Fun Day will begin at 10 a.m. at the First Baptist Church in Greensburg. The Fifty Club is the hostess this year. I go a list of the program from Isabelle. We will have someone from Hospice to talk about their work. A demo on Christmas Decorations and Christmas with kids, Microwave hot pad, Fabric Bowls, Button Earrings and a Pin Cushion. Sounds like a fun day and of course Alice will have a suprise demo as usual.

They will be serving lunch. The cost is $6. They are serving soup, sandwiches and of course homemade desserts. The program will last until 3 p.m. Remember the program is open to the public.
