Saturday, April 29, ladies of the Irvine Presbyterian Church hosted the Spring Gathering for the Lake Erie Presbyterian Women's Association.
Ninety-three women attended the event. The theme was Africa as the Presbyterian Church has a considerable mission presents in that country. Bev Hutchinson, missionary serving in Burkina Faso, Africa, provided a glimpse into the life and needs of the women and children that she serves. Women are still regarded as property there, and life is very hard for them. These women provide child care for one another so that they can attend worship and Bible study. The children are getting a basic education but their supplies are limited.
To help with supplies the attendees each brought school supplies, enough to fill two bushel baskets. Bev is sponsored by the Irvine Church. Dr. Jamie Swart, born in South Africa, provided a meditation and discussion comparing "The Woman at the Well" scripture story with the African woman.

As part of the commitment of the Friends of BVSP, they will be having work bees at the pool the next three weekends in May. On Saturday, May 14 and Sunday, May 15, they will be working from noon until 6 p.m. at the pool. They will be painting, cleaning, mowing, planting and all types of general maintenance.
They ask anyone who wants to be a partner in helping them save the pool for the community kids. Come on up and help out. A Friends of BVSP volunteer will be at the annual book fair at Youngsville Elementary Middle School the week of May 16-20 to sell pool passes. The passes will be sold at early bird discount.
