Thank you to all who helped organize, donate items, bought items at our Silent Auction. Â As a result of all your help, it was a great success again. Â We made a lot of money with it so we can continue ourÂ benevolenceÂ and other good works! Â Thanks again!
Even though there were not many people available for the Women’s Guild meeting, we did accomplish a lot. Â The Tea Party is almost completely planned. Â It will be on June 22nd (see invitation). Â Let Erie know if you can help by providing a teapot and/or some food.
We talked about the planning of the Advent Breakfast. Â It seems far away, but with all the other things on the calendar, this was a good time to start. Â We are still in need of a theme for the breakfast. Â Let Erie know if you have an idea we can work around.
And we planned our Annual Retreat. Â This year Janet has invited us to their house in the Poconos. Â We will be going for two days, leaving on Friday morning and returning on Saturday before dinner during the weekend of September 5th – 6th. Â If you can not come two days, consider coming Friday evening and Saturday or even just for the Saturday. Â We have a nice program in the works; it looks to be very promising. Â If you need to bring your children, please contact Janet first as the house is surrounded by lots of water.
We are still working on our prayer shawls and our next meeting for the shawls will be June 11th. Â After that, we will not meet during the summer, but please keep them growing as there are always people who will benefit from a shawl. Â As for our regular meeting, June 15th will not work since other meetings are planned for that day. Â I hope to see everybody at our tea party on June 22nd!
