The theme of the B.C.O.Y.M. was "Daring Hearts and Spirits Free". They also attended a banquet and listened to speakers. They enjoyed seeing old friends and making new ones. There were more than 800 students from all over the state at the convocation, ranging from freshmen in high freshmen in college. Everyone who attended received a list of names and addresses of those who attended to help them keep in touch with each other. Those who were sent by the Monroe United Methodist Church were; Nola Meeds, Chris and Bob Lentz, Dart and Bret Smith, Julie Jones.

In this case, soak the fabric in hot water, then use an enzyme pre-soak and wash. If necessary, you may have to wash again, using a chlorine bleach. Of course, the possibility of using a chlorine bleach depends on the type of fabric. Some of them you can--some of them you cannot. If you look at the permanent care label, it will tell you whether you can use a chlorine bleach or not. .2 l W I A Selection of Men's & Boys' A Selection of Ladies' & Children's shirts & pants --- V2 off slacks & blouses -- V3-V2 off jackets -- V3 off Dresses -- V3-V2 off sweaters --- Va off coats & jackets -- V3 off leisure suits -- V3 off sweaters -- V3 off The best thing to give your memy is forgiveness; to an lingerie -- Va-V2 off )pponent, tolerance; to a 'riend, your heart; to your Infants' Jackets & Snow :hild. a good example; to a Bank Cards[ iather, deference; to your Suits 1//3 off mother, conduct that "will 11AcceptedI make her proud of vou; to ,ourself, respect; to all men, EAST COUNTY'S COMPLETE FASHION DEPARTMENT STORE :harity.
