The Hopewell United Methodist Church will honor the memory of long-time member and leader Norma Arons on Sunday, September 25, with the dedication of a butterfly garden on the church property.
Norma Arons, who was a beloved kindergarten teacher for 36 years in the Montgomery School District and served on many church committees including the Sunday School Superintendent and president of the United Methodist Women, died last September. Mrs. Arons showed her Christian caring for many in and outside the church and is remembered with much love and affection. Her life of dedication to church and community was exemplary.
The garden is the work of several church members and includes stone carvings in the pavers and rocks, done by Hopewell artist Janis Blayne Paul of Karmic Stone.
Everyone is invited to a short program of dedication and remembrance after the 10 a.m. worship service at Hopewell United Methodist Church, 20 Blackwell Ave. The program will be held outside, weather permitting.
The program will be followed by “Sundae Sunday,” where there will be a “Make Your Own” ice cream sundae bar.
