When I last wrote, we were turning our clocks ahead one hour. It doesn't seem like seven months have passed, and we will soon be turning them back and preparing for the cold weather months that lie ahead.
Despite the difficult circumstances that have affected us all, Little Utica UMW has continued on with our missions. Our New 2 You and School House Boutiques have remained active, and thanks to our loyal customers, very successful. Both offer a wide variety of items for sale. The School House provides an opportunity to purchase a wide array of household necessities at very low prices. Rugs, sets of dishes, pots and pans, and small appliances, as well as books and children's toys, are just a few of the household goods available. Additionally, our New 2 You Boutique provides a unique and valuable opportunity to purchase gently used clothing of all kinds at very low prices. Our members work very hard to keep our standards high. This has resulted in many regular, loyal, customers, as well as new ones who learn of the amazing bargains we offer. Our recent acquisition of brand new men's clothing items of all kinds, in size medium, has been a great addition to our inventory.
Very few organizations have escaped being adversely affected by the global pandemic, and Little Utica is no exception to that. We are looking forward to being able to renew and increase our support of our other missions, including Erin's Angels and The Schneider Foundation. In addition, several of our members recently made generous donations of new boys' clothing items to a local school district, for distribution to students in need.
We look forward to the time when the pandemic will be just a memory, and we will be able to return to our normal activities. Psalm 46 : 1-3, reminds us "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea." Until then, it is our hope that everyone stays safe and healthy as we look forward to a new year. Remember that our Boutiques are open on Thursdays from 9-11, and on the first Saturday of each month. 
Please Note- The School House is closing for the season on Saturday, Nov. 7th. The New 2 You Boutique will be closed on the following dates: 11/26;  12/24;  1/2/21; and 4/3/21.
Blessings to all,
Donna Fingland, UMW President
