LADIES AID - Next Meeting: Tuesday,  December 6, 2022 at 11:00 a.m.

Please join us on Tuesday, December 6 at 11:00 a.m. Then stay for Golden Oldies at noon.

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

Fourteen individuals trekked to the Wendish Heritage Museum Tour and Lunch on October 13 in Serbin, Texas. The trip was informative, historical, and a learning experience topped with a scrumptious meal!

Quilters have completed 82 quilts for Lutheran World Relief. A lap quilt was also given to a St. Peter member. The LRW quilts were picked up after the November meeting. A huge thank you to Pam M.P. for delivering our quilts to the LWR In-Gathering in Marion on November 2.  Ladies Aid donated $100 to the movers who assist in gathering and sending the quilts to the warehouses.  Thanks to Joyce C and the quilters who assisted her, for coordinating the Blessing of the Quilts and for prepping, boxing, and loading the quilts for shipment. Ladies Aid is still making pillowcases for Dell Children's Hospital.  If you wish to make some pillowcases and need some guidance, or if you have some fabrics that would be appropriate for children and you'd like to donate the fabrics for someone else to sew, see someone in Ladies Aid. Join the quilters for some fellowship, fun, sewing, and quilting on the second and fourth Thursday of each month (except for holidays).

The winner of the Count Your Blessings quilt was drawn after church on Sunday, November 20, 2022. Congratulations to the winner. The winner will be announced in our next newsletter.

See you at our December meeting where we will elect officers for 2023 and plan a Christmas social. Remember to bring a Christmas item for the gift exchange ($10-$20) and goodies for the Christmas Eve goodie bags. Stay for the Golden Oldies pot luck lunch and dominoes. Watch for and join us at the subsequent Christmas social.
