The Iola United Methodist Women met Sept. 26 at Calvary UMC and discussed recent awards given to UMW members.
During the summer, several members, family and friends gathered to present the Dedicated Light Award to Dorothy Saxton who has been an active member for many years, and exemplifies what a United Methodist woman should be. The award is a gift to mission in the honorees name. She received acknowledgment at the UMW Great Plains Conference.
Donna Grigsby was awarded the Eunice Harrington Award at the UMW Great Plains Conference. One award each year is given in honor of a District Officer within the Conference who works toward racial equality and a commitment to local and world missions through volunteerism.
