Presbyterian Women of Salem Presbytery enjoyed a 25th anniversary celebration on Sunday, July 14, 2013 at First Presbyterian Church, Statesville, North Carolina. This affair was hosted by the ladies in clusters 3, 4 and 5. All of the ladies in our presbytery were invited. We enjoyed singing some of our favorite hymns, making a bookmark and decorating a star to be used as part of the decoration for our individual tables.
Our speakers were past moderators. They shared some of the memorable and exciting events that occurred during their time in office.
Everyone enjoyed a variety of fancy foods and a beautiful cake made by one of our ladies that had our logo in the top layer.
Instead of collecting a monetary offering, we collected nonperishable food and personal items for women; these items were taken to My Sister's House, our local women's shelter.
Our ladies were treated with a variety of favors and information that they took with them. We thank our three clusters for their thoughtfulness.
