Devotions were given by Fenneberg titled “Global Warming” or “Global Reign” from the Trinity Lutheran High School devotional book.

Roll call was answered by 11 members, a perfect attendance, naming the flowers they have blooming in their flower gardens.

Ileen Nehrt read the minutes, and Margie Nash gave the treasurer’s report. Both were accepted as read.

The Spring Affair committee announced it will go to Stream Cliff Farms on May 21 for their May meeting. Members are to call Nehrt or Gertie Schepman for reservations by May 18. Attendees will meet to carpool.
