ATTENTION ALL LADIES OF CLOVERDALE URC: Please join us on Saturday, January 30 from 2-4PM at the church kitchen for a kitchen shower in celebration of Miss Kitch Orange becoming Mrs. Kitch Alabaster.

Mrs. Alabaster is registered at Bed, Bath & Beyond and Target under the name “Cloverdale URC Kitchen.” For consistency and efficiency, we would appreciate if all items were purchased off the registry and brought unwrapped and unnamed to the shower. Gift cards are always welcome too. Cash donations are also encouraged to purchase items not found on the registry, and any checks can be written to CURC Building Fund.
