      Despite the snow that continued to fall all day on Monday, March 15th, the Emmanuel quilting ladies met and stayed to tie quilts. Ann Romo and Dorothy Hjermstad set up the tables and had supplies ready to go by 9 am. Carol Gjemse came with her husband, left a large casserole for the noon lunch but decided to get the ride home with her husband. The 1:00 meeting was postponed until Tuesday at 10am. After the two days of tying the quilts, thirty-six were tied and will be donated. This number includes baby, twin, and full size quilts. We will look into possibly donating to Ruth’s House in Faribault.     The WMF meeting was held on Tuesday at 10am. Seven ladies were present. President Tamra Berg called the meeting to order. Devotions were given by Dorothy Hjermstad. She read from 2 Kings 22:11-13 and 23 vs. 3. God cared enough to give us living instructions in a book, the Bible. Help us to study His instruction manual every day. Dorothy ended with prayer. There were no secretary’s or treasurer’s reports read. Mission envelopes will be distributed by Carol.

        The Central Tri-State District Spring Rally will be held in Mankato on April 10th. Let Jan Strand know if you are planning on attending so the host church can plan. Also, the National WMF day will be Wednesday, June 16th in Plymouth, MN.

        There will be two graduating seniors from Aspelund this year, Wyatt and Wesley Duben. Ali Coulter has made their quilts.

        The remaining events of the 2021 calendar were looked at. We hope to have the events as scheduled. We will plan on serving cupcakes honoring the high school graduates after church. The nursing homes are having less restrictions so we hope to meet there in August with a short program from Karen Melhouse. We could always meet outside, too, if necessary.

      Discussion held on the Goodhue County Christmas Project. Volunteers are needed as this program is run mostly by volunteers. There is some frustration when the families aren’t always appreciative. We have faith and believe that God will work in their lives as we continue this project.

            A big thank you to Ann Romo, Karen Melhouse, Dorothy Hjermstad and Sue Davidson for their quilt donations. Thank you to all the ladies that helped with tying the quilts. Motion made by Ann Romo to adjourn the meeting. Seconded by Dorothy Hjermstad.

Psalms 100:2a. Serve the Lord with gladness.

These ladies do just that when they work on these quilts! It’s a blessing to be able to bless others with these warm, beautiful quilts.
