MOTHER’S DAY & FATHER’S DAY LUNCHEON - MAY 21

 

The Board of Directors cordially invite the Mothers and Fathers to attend the Annual Mother’s Day & Father’s Day Luncheon.   It will be held on Sunday May 21st after the Monthly and Memorial Service which begins at 11:00 am.   It is a wonderful way for us to honor our parent(s) and let them have a relaxing day.  It is also an opportunity for them to socialize with other members.

 

The young adults are requested to bring a side dish.   Please contact the temple with any questions.   We look forward to seeing everyone there.
