LWML Minutes

March 17, 2019

Ellie Menz opened the meeting with a devotional on the Book of Esther.  A You Tube version can be found at youtube.com - search: The Bible Project – Esther – For such a time as this.  All members also signed Easter cards to be sent to our Trinity shut-ins and Alex Sloter, the seminarian we’re supporting.  There was discussion about sending cards in the future.  Melissa Barrett volunteered to have the 6th through 8th grade Sunday School classes take over this project.          

Alana Curnyn reported that the treasury balance is $623.40. Mites totaling $113.95 were sent to the Boone Zone.       

Thank you to Rita, Lisa, Sue, Lois H., Ruth G., Margaret, Trisha, Connie, Ellie and Alana for providing food for the Lenten supper provided by LWML on March 13th.  A free will donation netted $125.  There was discussion about sending this money along with proceeds from the Easter breakfast to Camp Okoboji for the cabin renovation project – specifically for Ephraim Cabin.  The decision was tabled until after the Easter breakfast.
