Immanuel Lutheran Ladies Aid 3 met June 16 at Woodstock Grill for a dinner outing and a meeting.
The guest was Vicar Alex Hoffmeyer, who led the ladies in a prayer and then based his lesson on 1 Timothy, Chapter 3, Verses 1-7. These passages list 10 virtues a pastor must have to be ordained.
The group presented a card to the vicar and expressed best wishes as he goes on to the seminary for a final year before he is ordained.
After finishing the meal, 19 members and four inactive members answered roll call. Two guests were introduced, Susan Moffin and Emily Henry.
Minutes from the March meeting were read and approved. Linda Kamman gave the financial report.
Monies received from a white elephant auction were to be designated for the Ferry family, missionaries who are presently in Indonesia. Rosalie Grabinski and Marlis Kilgas of the activities committee purchased books and Jell-O (at the family’s request) and sent them. A letter of thanks and a picture of the Ferry family were passed around.
The activities committee asked for ideas for the September outing. Several suggestions were made. Grabinski and Kilgas will check out the ideas.
Jan Behrens had visitations in May, and she gave the report. Sue Foster and Grabinski visited in June, and she gave that report.
Ann Mahan of the arts and crafts committee said she and Norma Kilgas are still contacting new vendors, and they already have four new vendors. Also, they are checking on music and noted that the eighth-graders of Immanuel Lutheran School will help set up and clean up after the craft show. Grabinski will be the chairperson for food, replacing Sharon Klakamp.
Jane Pardieck, president, asked for ideas for the 100th anniversary of the aid. The anniversary will be in April of next year.
The next meeting will be at 7 p.m. July 21 in the fellowship hall of the Seymour church.
Hostesses will be Carlana Able and Behrens.
