St. Mary's Chapter—will hold its final luncheon and meeting of the program year on Monday, June 3 at noon in the Parish Hall. We will be having our annual "indoor picnic" with fried chicken and all the trimmings, so bring your appetites! Because of a scheduling problem, Lisa Phillips, daughter of the late Ann and Bill Phillips, was unable to be with us in March, but she will join us to speak about her parents' business, Creative Carvings. If you have any of Ann and Bill's pins or lighthouse carvings, please bring them along to show and share.
