Episcopal Church Women ~ ECW
Annunciation has an active Episcopal Church Women’s organization. All women are members by their baptism. We meet on the first Thursday of the month from October through May, following the Thursday morning Eucharist. We usually have a short business meeting and a speaker or program and refreshments or lunch.
The ECW is the main fund raising body of the church. We have two or three big sales each year, usually earning $3,000-$4,000 each. The ECW organizes the sales but everyone (men included) pitches in to help. Virtually all the money raised goes to our Church or to charitable organizations in the area and around the world. The ECW supplies all funds for the coffee hour (food and serving person) throughout the year.
Be a Christmas Angel
About Thanksgiving each year we receive names and ages of children from rural poor families in Arcadia that have requested help providing a Christmas presents for their children. For the last several years we have provided gifts for over 40 children and a gift card for the family. When the list is posted, please take a card, write your name on the list and bring your unwrapped gift or gift card by the return date. The gifts will be delivered to Arcadia.
