Six members of Hopewell UMC’s United Methodist women met on Friday, July 25, to celebrate Christmas in July. Julie Compton, of Sassy Chick Paint Parties, helped the women paint a jolly snowman to use in their Christmas décor.

“It’s surprising how Compton can guide the untrained hands of ‘wannabe’ painters to execute a frame worthy piece of art they can be proud to display,” said Elaine Pierce, a member of the group.

The women continued the theme by playing Christmas music and preparing delightful snacks to fortify them for their task.
