Congressional District in the 2008 election,” he added. “In the meantime, we
will work to expand and strengthen our membership.”
‘Partying in Pink’ offered to girls while mothers go holiday
GRANDVIEW – Crafts, games, prizes, dancing, food and plenty
of fun will be found at the “Partying in Pink” get-together on the unofficial
first shopping day of the holiday season.

Church meeting room, located at 5

encouraged (901-4118 or 894-4895).
Proceeds raised from the Girl Scouts fundraiser will be used
to pay for troop activities.
