The Monte Sano Supper Club is approaching its 16th year! Founded in 1999, the Club’s purpose is to foster friendships on the mountain. Each month, participants will have dinner with a different group of people in a small setting so as to be able to better get to know each other. Dinners are usually held in member’s homes, with the host/hostess deciding on whether to make the entire dinner themselves or ask each guest to bring a dish to share. (The latter is the most popular choice.) Each couple/household usually hosts two times per year.
- Supper Club dinners are scheduled for the second Saturday of each month, but if needed each small group is totally free to change the date and time to better suit their schedules or enjoy a lunch or brunch.
- On the second Saturday of each the summer months of June, July and August the Club members in town meet at the pool for a potluck dinner. Anyone interested in attending these supper potlucks is most welcome. Just show up at the pool at 6:00 p.m., bring a dish to share and beverage. Paper plates, napkins, utensils, cups and ice are provided by the Club.
- The last potluck gathering for this season will be on August 9, 2014.
- Please note that if the weather is bad or looks “iffy”, call Carol Edwards (256-489-5243) first to be sure the location hasn’t been changed.
- Sign-ups for the 2014 – 2015 will begin mid-July just watch for signs. If there are questions, feel free to call Carol.
The Monte Sano Supper Club is an excellent way to stay connected with old friends and to meet new ones. Come join the fun… we’d love to have you!

Danny Wilmoth Fund A benevolence fund has been set up by Monte Sano United Methodist Church(MSUMC) for Danny Wilmoth, whose leukemia is being treated at MD Anderson Cancer Hospital in Texas. Danny has battled this disease for two years. He and his wife , Kimberly, and their children, Caleb and Marcella, reside at 311 Monte Sano Boulevard. Danny is the owner of Monte Sano Lawn Care. He is a caring neighbor, often helping others without expecting any recognition. Many say he would do anything for you, even “give you the shirt off his back”, if you asked for it! Danny has been a Monte Sano resident since his mom, Dee Hall, married life long mountain resident, Carey Hall . He attended Monte Sano Elementary and has many friends on this mountain that he loves so very much.The fund was kept a secret from Danny until Dee decided his knowing about the fund might help him realize he was in our hearts and not forgotten after his lengthy hospitalizations. There are huge expenses on the family to be with him: traveling, food, parking, housing , and drug costs that are looming as well as missed wages. We are able to make a direct deposit into Dee’s bank as the funds are deposited by the church bookkeeper. Please make checks payable to MSUMC and designate on the “for” line The Danny Wilmoth Fund. I hope we express to them our love, caring, and support through generous giving. The church address is 601 Monte Sano Blvd. 35801. Office hours are Monday through Thursday , 8am until 1pm .
