WOMEN’S ASSOCIATION – The Women’s Association, now known as Presbyterian Women, was established in 1889. They are strong workers for our church raising funds with luncheons, dinners, and sales. They are constantly working to keep the kitchen up-to-date and have raised the funds to be able to purchase commercial appliances (stove, refrigerators) and upgrade countertops. The association meets on the first Wednesday each month, except in July, August, and January at 1:00 pm. All women in our area are welcome and encouraged to join us for fun and fellowship.
