UMW Collection Items

The UMW is very appreciative of the soup labels collected the past few years, but as of right now we will no longer be collecting them. We will continue to collect the BOX TOPS for EDUCATION for the local schools, as well as eye glasses for the Lions Club. These items may be left in the Parlor.
If you give the box tops directly to a school, please submit the number so we can include yours on our Annual Report. Contact Judy Gray at 756-0907 for information.
