Shiloh Grass Band entertains Hunterdale Seniors

On Oct. 16, the Hunterdale Seniors met. Edna Butler read the Scripture and prayed for all prayer requests. She also gave thanks because a member’s sister had a successful surgery; she was greatly blessed.

Anne Griffin read a thank you note from Franklin Cooperative Ministrey. The group collects food for them at each meeting.
