LADIES AID Meeting: Tuesday,  March 5, 2024 at 11:00 a.m.
(Stephanie H will share the December devotion.)

Please join us for our regular meeting on Tuesday, March 5 at 11:00 a.m. Then, feel free to stay for Golden Oldies pot-luck lunch and dominoes.

At our February meeting, Barb G opened with a devotion and prayer based upon Psalm 15-19 & 22. Secretary Gwen E read the minutes which were approved. Treasurer Kathy B reported our financial status and card recipients for January.  

The quilters have completed 15 quilts for LWR. Also, the hand-quilted Botanical Blooms Candlelight Quilt is complete and a new one will begin soon. March is quilter’s month. Bring a lunch and join the St. Peter quilters on March 14 and/or March 28 from 10:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. for some quilting, sharing stories, fellowship, and laughter.  You can select, iron or cut fabric, sew, tie, hand quilt, or sit and visit with the quilters.

In observance of March Quilter’s Month, we encourage to check out the quilts at the Georgetown 2024 Quilt Show presented by Handcrafts Unlimited on March 22-23 from 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. at the Community Center in San Gabriel Park.  Admission is $8.   

Ladies Aid delivered a benevolence check and collect items to Hope Alliance in Round Rock on February 15. Hope Alliance was our designated benevolence recipient in January. Thanks to all who contributed and delivered the donations. We also presented St. Peter with a Helen Nitzkowski memorial gift.

We sang Happy Birthday to Hannah D, Kathy B and Sandra H. We shared prayer concerns and closed with the Lord’s Prayer.

We hope to see you at our March 5 meeting and look forward to new projects and adventures in 2024.  It's only $5 a year to join Ladies Aid.  It's not too late to join.
