First Wednesday Fellowship

First Wednesday Fellowship

Greetings from your First Wednesday Fellowship hosts!  Our new meeting time is now at 12:30 PM!

The First Wednesday Fellowship group gathers on the first Wednesday of each month for an afternoon of fun, desserts, fellowship and enrichment.  We will no longer be serving lunch - however, we will have desserts at 12:30 PM, followed by our program at 1:00 PM.  If you wish, you may bring a dessert to share.  The program changes each month, always offering something new and exciting!  The programs are free and reservation or registration is not required.  Come and join us!

Should you have any questions or would like additional information please contact
Barb or Bruce Harmel at 815-759-9644.

Everyone is welcome!  We hope you will join us!
