Church Women United of Monroe County invites the public to its Christmas luncheon at noon on Saturday, Dec. 1, at St. John's Lutheran Church, on Scotrun Avenue, Scotrun. Sandwiches will be provided, but attendees are asked to bring cookies to share. RSVP to Betty Campbell at (570) 629-0649 or ecampbell@ptd.net.

The host church will provide not only the facility, but also beverages, cups, plates, napkins and utensils.

Judy LaGuardia will receive the sixth annual CWU Margaret Wyckoff Wells award for her dedication and work in the community.

Christmas stockings will be collected by Nora Cilurso that day or by previous arrangements. Each stocking should be marked as to whether it is for a woman, man or child. Those who have made them are asked to pack them in plastic bags with a handle, not boxes.

Representatives of the various churches are asked to bring the dues for their respective church for 2013 to give to Campbell, who is treasurer. They may be mailed to her at P.O. Box 474, Reeders, PA 18352-0474.

Churches are also asked to consider hosting either the March World Day of Prayer or May Fellowship Day so programs can be ordered.
