“Making Summer Count” workshop for parents

Celebrate moms this weekend
The Five Oaks FUN Team wants to say a HUGE Thank You to all the moms and motherly figures who have influenced us. Please stroll through the Commons after the service and read the special messageswritten for you. You are also welcome to grab a blank card and write a note to the “mom” in your life. (Oh yeah -- grab a delicious homemade cupcake, too!)
