For "Irish Music & Fun" with Ione and Michael Slattery, come to the After 5 Christian Women's Group at 7 p.m. March 11 at Pam's Bakery Shop, 280 E. Eighth.

A "Simple Charm" will be the theme of speaker Carol Sharp of Chanute.

Be encouraged as Sharp shares her story about the gift of a simple charm that brought her far more than Irish luck. Sharp is married to an accountant, and they have four children and eight grandchildren (another to arrive in March). She enjoys sewing, gardening and writing. Her favorite season is the season we're in.

Cost of the dinner program is $12.50. Reservations are due Thursday to (785) 621-4701 or

Hays After 5 is affiliated with Stonecroft Ministries of Kansas City, Mo.
