It’s a really easy and scenic drive to the church; please join us as we host Jennifer Seavey of Appledore Island, who will be sharing some great stories from our neighboring Shoals.

Visit with your ISHRA friends off season and share a meal and your favorite stories about the islands. Please bring a main dish, side dish or desert or beverage to share (Last year’s offerings were a delicious testament to the culinary skills of our members). Don’t forget to bring your camera and photo albums!

The social last year was enjoyed by all who attended, with a great meal featuring ham, turkey and many delectable pot luck items and a silent auction. A delicious taco salad was donated by Texas Roadhouse… many thanks for their generous offering. This year’s Winter Social will be held from 1:00 – 3:30.

Don’t miss out on the fun this year! See you there…
