Members of adjoining classes are always welcomed to join the group. Call one of those who attended for information.
The July Newsletter of WLA Cross Chapter recounts the group’s many activities.
If you have noticed the WLA’s large building at 1212 Ranger Drive you may have wondered what goes on there. Here’s a little insight into the many worthwhile activities that this group sponsors.
During May the Wildlife Festival/Earth Day Celebration was successful with many volunteers. The archery range, pellet gun range, aquatic animal dipping, kayaking, casting, and animal displays kept folks of all ages busy.
The Santee Cooper, John Ham Memorial Catfish Tournament for two days in June was another grand event.
First place went to Ed Bowie and Tony Bonner . The Walmart Gift Certificate raffle was won by J. Nelson with a ticket purchased from Charles Whitten. Many thanks to Floyd Higgins who has joined the WLA for 10 years of faithful service!
Several items were raffled off including the bicycle donated back by Floyd Higgins. T-shirts commemorating the event are still available for $10 each, or two for $18.
WLA thanks Santee Cooper and BEC for their sponsorship.
Now WLA is proudly sponsoring four young people to attend the National WLA Summer Camp. This is quite a worthy accomplishment for the Cross Chapter.
The Cross Chapter also recently hosted BSA Troop 469 at the WLA Center on Ranger Drive. The Scouts camped, paddled the Lake Moultrie Pond Trail, and also picked up over 100 pounds of trash along the way.
WLA monthly meetings will continue to be held monthly on the second Wednesday unless otherwise announced. These covered dish suppers and board meetings are at 6 p.m., and everyone is invited to join the fellowship and planning for the fall’s program.
Make plans now to join Lebanon United Methodist Church for Homecoming on Sept.30. Anyone who may have pictures or information about former pastors, dinners, or activities at the Lebanon Church should call Nita and Duffy Stone.
The Browns and Thackers may still have fruits and veggies fresh at their farm/garden in Eadytown and also under a tent on the right side of Hwy. 6 when driving into Moncks Corner.
Also, Tuesday and Saturday morning from 8:30 until 11 a.m., gardeners and farmers are selling their produce at the Cross Community Center.
Reminder to all parents and youth: Vacation Bible School at Galilee is still in session for the remainder of this week, July 24 thru 27, nightly at 6 p.m. Featuring the theme of "Praising Puppets for Jesus," there will also be food, crafts, and fun for all. On Friday special activities will include a jump castle and other fun.
The Community Lunch Bunch met at Friendship United Methodist Church on the third Wednesday of July for fellowship, a devotion, and a delicious meal with a variety of dishes.
Plan to join the group at 11 a.m. on a third Wednesday soon!
