Bunco Night

Come join in the fun and camaraderie at the Women of Hope Bunco night at 7:00pm on Friday, October 20.  We will engage in an exciting game of Bunco, enjoy light refreshments (bring a snack if you’d like to!), and prizes will be awarded.
 
A $5 participation fee will be collected at the door. This will cover the cost of prizes, and any extra money will help us put on future Women of Hope events. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO EXTEND THIS INVITATION TO OTHERS! For more information, contact Molly Fetty.


Trunk or Treat

Please join us for Trunk or Treat on Saturday, October 28 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. This is a community wide event, so feel free to invite your friends, family and neighbors! Stop by the Pumpkin Patch during the event for family photo opportunities!  The children and their families will enjoy an evening of Fall fun, fellowship and candy!
 
If you would like to host a Trunk, please contact Carolyn Smitherman to register a spot. Decorate your trunk, bring some candy and consider providing a non food alternative for children with food allergies. We ask that anyone hosting a trunk arrive by 4:15pm or earlier to set up. Thank you in advance to those providing Trunks! We look forward to seeing everyone there!
