The Cornelia Johnson Circle of First United Methodist Church enjoyed a tour of the Ronald Mc- Donald House in Augusta for their meeting on Tuesday, January 2.

Janie Cravens led a tour of the house which was very enlightening for the ladies to see the beautiful facility whose staff provides housing, meals, and other services to families of hospitalized critically ill children who may be hundreds of miles from home.

While there they visited with one military couple from Fort Stewart who had twin premature boys in the hospital, and who shared what a benefit it had been for them to stay at the Ronald McDonald House since they were three hours from home.

The circle members took gift items to be used by the residents and made monetary donations to Ronald McDonald Charities.
