Discovery Women

We will begin the trip with brunch or lunch (they serve both) at the Sunflower Bakery and Café. Then we will explore the acclaimed BRYAN MUSEUM of Southwestern History and Art in Galveston. The day will feature a guided tour of the museum's collections., and "drive-by sightseeing" of Galveston highlights. This will be our last meeting for this season and would be an excellent time to invite a friend to go with you before we start into the summer months. Remember, everyone traveling on the Precinct Bus must be 50 + years of age.

The admission to the museum will be $10 and you do need to register for the trip and pay this amount before that date. We will have a sign up in the narthex on Sunday, April 30 and Sunday, May 7. We hope you will not wait until that date to let us know if you would like to make the trip as we are making arrangements for the Precinct 4 bus and need to have a count.

Departure from Northwoods on May 12 will be at 8:45 AM. Please arrive at the parking lot on the east side of the church by 8:30. We expect to return to Northwoods by 5:30 - 6:00 pm. To get your name on the list or if you have any questions, please contact Mary Kimball at 281-444-2709.

If you have a "Butterfly Effect" story it would be most appropriate to share that. If you have a story to share, contact The Rev. Harry Yates at 281-444-6296 so he can make sure you are on the agenda.

MAY 14TH - Wonder what's behind the terrorism horrors of our times?New member Johnie Wood may be able to answer that question as well as anyone.

These days he is preparing for the ministry.
