Founder’s Day Set For Oct. 19 At Hickory GroveOct 10th, 2013 | By Admin | Category: Church, Community News

Founder’s Day is just around the corner, and Hickory Grove members are working long and hard getting ready for nearly 2,500 folks to come and enjoy a day at church. This year, with the new Madison Youth Ranch presently being built, Founder’s Day will have a second purpose, and that is to raise money for this great project that is being constructed right in our back yard! For one thing, the folks from the Florida Methodist Children’s Home will be present with a booth telling all about the new facility that is being built. Another thing will be that you can support the Madison Youth Ranch by purchasing a button to wear at Founder’s Day. With a donation of only $5, you can get a three-inch button showing your support of the Youth Ranch. The church purchased these handsome buttons and will be selling them at the Youth Ranch Booth and in the Country Store..In the picture of our Pastor and his wife, Tim and Tonja Blanton, you can see what the shirts look like. They are a beautiful rich purple with white letters. The front of the shirt says, Hickory Grove SUPPORTS the Madison Youth Ranch. These shirts can be purchased in the Country Store for only $10. Be sure to get your shirt while there is a supply. This year, Founder’s Day will be better than ever. Mark your calendars today and plan to come and visit and stay ALL day. We promise a good time!
