President: Barb Schmidt
March News: Monthly meeting is March 7th at 1:00PM . The last workday in February was canceled due to weather. If time permits, after the meeting, we will begin work on the graduation quilts, an annual project that we started in 2001. Each small quilt features a label with the recipient’s name, school, date of graduation, confirmation passage, and Pastor’s telephone number. When we started, WELS had a hotline number that we used, the idea being that a student away from home could always call for help
We recently sewed 10 pairs of shorts for Haitian orphans (This idea came from a FORWARD IN CHRIST article), and we have received information regarding more sewing to be done for these children which will be talked about at the meeting on the 7th. We will also be working on a funeral banner that was started before the tornado struck. We had to change the Bible passage because one of the new donated banners has the one we planned to use (If you know of anyone who needs silver lame letters for THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE, let Barb know)
We will also be making confirmation stoles. It has been 25 years since we first made stoles for confirmands.
