At Church Council it was decided for seniors to go to the Pioneer Restaurant in Versailles after the morning worship service September 9th.   

Dyan mentioned we received a check for $203.20 from the disbanded Ivy Bend crime watch.   They were dividing the funds between local churches to be used for the needy.  Karen Moore made a motion to split the proceeds in half, giving half to the deacon’s fund and the other to replenish our church pantry.  Floy Beard made a second.  Passed

Carol wanted clarification on when the senior dinner was.  Dyan to make a sign-up sheet to get an estimate on who is going to the restaurant.

Respectfully Submitted,

Dyan Dunsworth
