Women’s Lunch Bunch – Noontime Zoom

By Linda Wright

Beginning Wednesday August 19 the Women’s Lunch Bunch will gather on Zoom. Mark your calendar now for the third Wednesday of every month at noon. Contact Linda Oaksford in advance for the Zoom link to join.

Meet with others in our community for a casual gathering with no particular agenda. Bring something to eat or drink, or not. This is a purely social time, a way to meet with folks you don’t know already, or folks you do know but want to know better.

As the hymn by Jim Scott encourages us to do:

“Gather in peace, gather in thanks,
Gather in sympathy now and then.
Gather in hope compassion and strength

Gather to celebrate once again.
Gather the spirit of heart and mind.”
