Summer Fun

Palos UMC had a float in the 4th of July Parade. We handed out candy and postcards inviting people to church.

On August 4th we celebrated Durward Fagan's 102nd Birthday!!! We had the blessing of watching our oldest and youngest, Durward's great grandson Bodyn just gaze at each other. A wonderful day had by all! We hope your summer has been a great one too!
