Parents are urged to register their children for Lunches of Love now for meals that will begin July 9. Registration packets were distributed before the end of school in May and are available at the office of First United Methodist Church during office hours. They may be returned to the church office. The deadline to return forms is Friday, July 6 so that children are able to participate on the first day. For more information, see the June 28 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
