The Mcpher­son Aux­il­iary met at the Ber­wick Bap­tist Church on March 6. Devo­tions were given by Jean­nie Hunt­ley – “The Great To­mor­row” and It’s a Won­der­ful World.” Mar­i­lyn Reeves read “Life’s Sea­son” which she fol­lowed with prayer. There were nine mem­bers present.

A do­na­tion was made to the memo­rial fund. Get well cards were sent out. At the next meet­ing the group is do­ing an Easter of­fer­ing. Each mem­ber will do a do­na­tion as a fundraiser rather than do­ing a cof­fee party.

The next meet­ing will be April 3 at 2 p.m.
