Of Special Note

Sundae Sunday
July 30, 2017

July 25th is National Hot Fudge Sundae Day, and in 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month. Who are we to argue? So after service on Sunday July 30th we will have ice cream and toppings available for indulging in everyone’s favorite summertime (or anytime) treat!
