LADIES AID - Tuesday,  October 4, 2022 at 11:00 a.m.

Please join us on Tuesday, October 4 at 11:00 a.m. Then stay for Golden Oldies at noon. Vinette M will lead the devotion.

Ladies Aid had a good turn out for its September meeting. Kathy B opened our meeting with a devotion and prayer. Sandra H read the minutes which were then approved. Debbi I reported our financial status. And Kathy B updated us on prior month recipients of sympathy, birthday, anniversary, thinking of you and get-well cards.

Quilters have completed 66 quilts for Lutheran World Relief. Join the quilters on 2nd & 4th Thursdays to assist, learn about quilting and enjoy the fellowship. Ladies Aide is also still making pillowcases for Dell Children’s Hospital delivery in December or January. They are easy to make. If you wish to help, Joyce C can get you started.

Thanks to Kathy B for work on the plaque at the church cemetery for Mike Doerfler, and also for suggesting numerous social outings. We enjoyed lunch at Torchy’s Tacos, and a trip to COTA to see Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel.

Ladies Aid donated a table topper and afghan to Fall Festival Quilt Show and Auction benefiting Cross Trails Ministry.  Thanks to Vinette M & Debby I for their time and efforts on this project.

Ladies Aid will have a garage sale at Joyce Coldewey's home in Georgetown on October 22 to start at 7:00 a.m.  Set up will start at 6:30 a.m.  All items should be marked and priced before they are delivered.  We will also sell raffle tickets for a quilt at the garage sale.

Debby continues work on revisions to our constitution to reflect our current policies and practices.

We closed with the Lord’s Prayer. Hope to see you on October 4.

Trip to Serbin, TX / Wendish Historical Museum - Thurs, Oct 13, 2022 at 9:00am


The St. Peter’s Ladies Aide invites all members and friends to join them for a field trip to Serbin, Texas.

Besides the Wendish Historical Museum and gardens, the tour will include St. Paul Lutheran (one of the the painted churches), several historic log cabins and a traditional Wendish meal of sausage, sauerkraut, sides, drinks and dessert.


The carpool will leave from St. Peter at 9:00 am. The price for the tour is $17.50 plus tax ($12.50 for the meal and $5 for the museum) per person. Ten individuals are needed for the meal.  If we do not have 10 going on the tour, we will eat somewhere else in the area, and the cost will be $5 for the museum.  If you plan to go, give your $17.50 to Debby Ischy or Vinette Makal on or before October 4.  If we fall short of the 10 attending, we will reimburse your $12.50, and you can use it for lunch wherever we end up eating.
