Pam Stagg Day Circle Honors Members

In recent months, the Pam Stagg Day Circle voted to include two dedicated and longtime active
members as United Methodist Women Honorary Members. Betty Lilley and Jackie Taylor have
demonstrated devotion to the ideals of the United Methodist Women through their attendance
at meetings and many volunteer hours in support of the Circle’s fundraising efforts including
bake sales, Easter Egg making, the annual craft show, and church yard sale. Previously, Betty and
Jackie were presented with UMW Life Membership pins. These ladies put their Christian faith
into practice over the years, and their efforts are appreciated by the membership of the Day
