Lavonia McRae

Still going strong at 87

We have a wonderful member in our church family who I would like to nominate as my Everyday Hero. Her name is Lavonia McRae.

She has performed many functions at John Wesley United Methodist Church, including quilt making, helping with the annual craft show, food preparations, visiting shut-ins with communion rites, sending cards, helping when church secretary is away, etc.

Her latest effort was to spearhead a celebration committee for our Red Carpet Gala this past October, which was to celebrate John Wesley United Methodist Church’s 30th anniversary. It was a beautiful success, and we would like to thank her, and her committee! She does all these wonderful things for our church and she is 87 years young!
