Margaret Martens conducted the meeting in Ellie Menz’s absence. Thank you to Darla Johnson who presented devotions and also supplied treats. 

Thanks to Shirley Griffin, Pat Benitz, Sue Rieder, Rita Pedersen, Margaret, Ellie, and Darla for supplying soups and sandwiches for the Lenten Supper on March 11.  $115 was collected. 

Thanks to Ruth Goshon for doing the card ministry for many years. Carol Christensen has offered to take it over. 

Margaret announced that as of now the Boone Zone LWML Spring Rally is planned for Saturday, April 18th at Christ Lutheran-Bouton. Coffee will be served at 8:30 a.m. and there will also be lunch served. The speaker will be Karen Menz who is an inspirational speaker who has defied the odds and is still alive after many challenges. Carpooling from TLC will leave at 7:45 a.m. A sign-up sheet will be posted.

Group 1 (Laurie Walker, Head) is in charge of the confirmation reception which will be held on Palm Sunday, April 5th.

Group 2 (Sue Rieder, Head) will be in charge of the high school graduation reception in May. 

Trinity-Jefferson LWML is in charge of the Boone Zone Fall 2020 Rally, so we need to decide on a date, menu, speaker, etc. We don’t have to decide all of it by the Spring Rally, but it is nice for people to know the date if possible. Margaret said that instead of a speaker, another option could be working on several service projects throughout the morning. Brenda Dryer, Boone Zone President is suggesting October 10th for the date, but that is up to us. 

Margaret announced that the National LWML presented a grant of $100,000 to Gary Thies at Mission Central this past week.

LWML District Convention is June 18-20, 2020 at Camp Okoboji.  Registration forms were handed out.  We need to appoint two delegates and one alternate to do voting. Elizabeth Graham is the Boone Zone YWR (Young Women’s Representative). Her costs for attending will be paid by the Zone.  Boone Zone is one of the hosts at the convention, along with the Carroll Zone. As a host worker you can stay in Bethel, which is a newer air-conditioned cabin. Margaret announced that there was still a need for ushers, golf cart drivers, helping with the newsletter, meal monitors, and registration. Darla offered to be a cart driver on Thursday. Sue offered to help with registration and be a meal monitor on Thursday. 

Trinity-Jefferson’s LWML group has been requested to furnish a wrapped basket/box for a silent auction. It is supposed to be a secret, but the title is supposed to give a hint as to what is inside. Pat offered to buy and wrap non-perishable items promoting Greene County businesses for this. We decided to keep the cost under $50. 

Pat also reported that the zone canceled their spring quilt pick up. She is not sure why they felt that this was necessary.  

Treasury Balance is $1,176.61. This included a donation from the Sue Thede funeral.  Mites sent in last month totaled $152.25.
