    At the First United Methodist Church, Evergreen Outreach scored a big success! With Beulah Brown as our leader, David and Patricia Pence (SoftFire) as our entertainment and the Rev. Joe Lawson to providing us scripture and prayer, we celebrated spring in Ireland with a St. Patrick’s Day theme. It was the best party in town!

    Love, caring and good wishes came in with guests for our early “countdown to Valentine’s Day celebration.” We are meeting on the first Monday of each month during the winter season.
    Turning to the stage, leader Beulah Brown welcomed the SoftFire duo of David and Patricia Pence from Hillsboro. Their musical theme was also centered on love – a tribute to Valentine’s Day.

    The joy of Christmas rang true in Wesley Hall on Monday as Evergreen Outreach embarked on the beginning of another successful year. HAPPY NEW YEAR! There was a savoring of the last few days of the lighted Christmas tree, the table full of Poinsettias and tons of cookies.
