SIGMA — Young members of Tabernacle United Methodist Church helped out last month during the 61st Annual Lotus Luncheon, which helps support the church on Sandbridge Road.

“Young people are working, and they’re also supporting older members of the church,” said Jill Norton of Red Mill, co-chair for this year’s luncheon. 

Gladys Pallett, also of Red Mill and a fellow co-chair, said everyone pitches in for the luncheon. 

The menu featured country ham and chicken salad, among others. Young people bussed tables, set places, and carried drinks to those eating.

Ann Henley of Sigma added that there is a design to this.

“We’ll get them right up to be cooks before long,” she said.
