 What is your favorite part of Thanksgiving Dinner? Is it the food, the fellowship, or the heritage of using grandma’s recipes? Whatever it is, plan to enjoy it this Thanksgiving and share it with family and friends.

"Knock knock."
 "Who's there?"
 "Tamara."
"Tamara who?"
 "Tamara we'll eat all the leftovers!"


Is your PW back to functioning like pre-Covid? I doubt many are. So, are you considering exciting ways to fulfill our purpose


       My group is meeting for the Bible Study each month and planning Gatherings 5 times a year (down from10 in 2019).

       We just took our first field trip since February 2020 to a new local museum.

      We are also discerning any mission projects that work with our aging group and combined skills or lack of skills.

      What are you doing?

 Looking ahead, PW in the Presbytery of Tampa Bay’s Annual Meeting is scheduled for February 18, 2023. (This date is not carved in stone.) The number of attendees has been under 100. If your church PW would like to host us or need more information, please let Moderator Susan McNaught know.
