Membership chairwoman Connie Gerth introduced guests Becky Baker, Lora Hackman, Amy Hartley, Sue Spicer, Sheena Isaacs, Karen Dobrinski, Chata Toppe, Mindy Clay, Nancy Cherry, Jeanie Schneider and Nancy Franke.

Olga Otte led the group in singing, and Phyllis Nantz reported on a state meeting she attended.

Members were thanked for the clothing donations made to the Jackson County Clothing Center and the Brownstown Ministerial Assistance Program.

“Glad You Came” prizes and flowers from Schneider Nursery were won by Hartley, Otte, Barb Schuley, Luella Mackey, Sue Fechter and Ruth Beesley.

Committee members for the evening were chairwoman Beesley, Adams, Madge Fountain, Susan Harrison, Sheila Reynolds, Laura Stahl and Sandy Melloncamp.
