St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Selma is preparing for its annual Lobsterfest fundraiser on Thursday, Sept. 21. All profits from this year will go toward our Respite program, known as WINGS (Walking In God’s Spirit). This program is for dementia patients, and gives their caregivers a respite for a day. Various activities and lunch are provided for our guests, with volunteers helping with all.
