Proceeds from this fundraiser will help reconstruct a school building on the east end of Cuba that has strong historic connections to Quakers and the Wilmington area, hence the name.

Christian Women meet

SABINA — The ladies of Sabina Methodist Church hosted the October meeting of the Sabina Area Christian Women on Monday, Oct. 1.

Following a meal of lasagna, tossed salad, garlic bread, and a variety of desserts, Joni Manson presided over the business meeting. The women voted to make a donation to the Sabina Ministry Association.

The program was presented by Vickie (Brandenburg) Bishop, who told about her experiences as a military spouse. She and her husband moved 29 times, living in 10 states and two countries. She shared the pros and cons of never living in one location for a long time and the effect it had on her family.

The next meeting will again be held at the Sabina Methodist Church at 6 p.m. Nov. 5. All area women are welcome no matter what their church affiliation may be.
