We appreciate the Ask Dr. Fran Facebook page coverage and boost that Dr. Fran and her husband Ed McCain provided. Dr. Fran also gave us a bid challenge: if a pie or cake goes for over $500.00 Dr. Fran will add $200.00 on top of it. The challenge was met when Archie and June Dennis placed the winning bid for a cake. A big Thank You to cake buyers Archie & June Dennis and to Lance Gooden for paying $600.00 for peanut brittle.
The Athens Review did a photo story of the Methodist Men’s donation to the Food Panty and a frontpage article about the upcoming event. This coverage is appreciated.
The Methodist Men meet the 2nd and 4th Wednesday at 6:45AM. And on the other Wednesdays at 6:45AM we have Bible study lead by Dr. Joe Mike Murphy. You are invited to attend and enjoy the fellowship of a great group of men.
We are not just Methodist but a diverse group. We have members that are Baptist, Catholic and Presbyterian and others.
