The annual Mother-Daughter Friend Celebration of the New Holland United Methodist Women was held Wednesday evening at the church.
Ann Thompson, president, welcomed all and introduced Kay Oughterson, program chairperson. Kathy Brown gave the evening’s devotions “A True Friend.” Josetta Thompson sang “What A Friend We Have in Jesus.” A tribute to mothers and daughters was given by Terri Kirkpatrick and Nikki Sheets. Special music by Carmen White was enjoyed.
A very informative and delightful program “Teapots,” was presented by Kay Oughterson. She had a table of teapots and she talked about them. She gave a quiz: “Teapot/Tea Quiz.” She shared some cups of tea that are good for us as Christians. She gave all present a list of ways we can share God’s love. All present were given tea pot fans in keeping with the theme.
The evening closed with the singing of “Bless Be the Tie That Binds.” Delightful refreshments were served in the basement at tables decorated with beautiful flowers, lighted candles and decorated candy baskets. Many door prizes were given and all enjoyed the fellowship.
