HAPPY CLAM FEST DAYS TO YOU AND YOURS!
MAY ALL YOUR CLAM FEST DREAMS COME TRUE. 
We'll see you on the green or at the church and joyously work together to support our church and community. 
NURSERY REFRESH
Our welcoming, lovely nursery could use a few gently used additions to keep it comfortable and fun for the littlest First U-ers. We are gladly accepting donations of any of the following:
