50th wedding anniversary celebration

Car Wash and Bake Sale fundraiser Saturday

Watervliet Free Methodist Church, 7734 Paw Paw Avenue is holding a Car Wash and Bake Sale this Saturday, June 22 from 8 a.m. to noon. Proceeds from the morning activities will help fund a chartered bus trip to the Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky for the children and teens of the church. The trip is planned for August. Questions can be directed to the church office at 463-8280. The children’s and youth’s ministry teams at Watervliet Free Methodist Church extend an invitation to the community to support this project. The trip is a great opportunity for kids to learn the truth about God’s miraculous love and marvelous creation.

By Teresa Smithers Jennifer Lohraff has dreamt of having her own shop for years. Not as much as her mother, Judy Kay, wanted it for her.
