Hours are Saturday, Sunday and Monday, 1 to 4 p.m. For more information, call June Metzner, 734-7113.
A very special happy birthday on July 15 to Louis Corso from his 22-month-old granddaughter, Marin, and her mother, Monica.
Tom and Barbara Mercier practice what they preach. Most recently, they visited Uganda on a missionary trip. Listening to Barbara describe the torrential rains and being surrounded by gunfire with such conviction and passion, one couldn’t help but see that she’s answering a calling. Hearing how Tom was less passionate about the experience, but dedicated nonetheless, left one feeling that the depth of his love for his beloved wife is that of which dreams are made! God bless!
Speaking of dreams, Lauren Ciappetta and David Berry are making one of their own come true. Their recent trip to Hawaii was an opportunity for a magical moment when David got down on one knee and popped the question. Congratulations and may your days be filled with dreams come true!
