     On Monday, March 16th, eight ladies met at Emmanuel to quilt. The quilts are sewed together by Ann Romo and Karen Melhouse and the ladies meet to tie them. There were many beautiful, colorful quilts completed Monday and Tuesday. The quilt totals were; 3 Twin size, 8 Youth size, 8 Baby quilts, 5 Full size and 23 Lap robes. Three of the lap robes will go to the Hope Lodge at the U of M for cancer patients with the remainder of the lap robes going to the Kenyon Sunset Home and our other shut-ins. The other quilts will be given to other individuals or organizations as well.

     We also held a short business meeting. President Tamra Berg called the meeting to order. Everyone prayed the Lord’s Prayer and Janice Nelson gave a timely prayer for our nation, families, leaders, etc. in this difficult time.

     MN Teen Challenge was cancelled. If they reschedule, maybe a different month could be looked at. March is a busy month with the Lenten schedule and the circles serving supper. It was discussed that the WMF could help with a fundraiser for the Jared Trost family’s mission trip to Uganda. We could possibly hold it on Rally Day. The WMF would provide the meal and the free will offering could be given to the Trosts. The WMF will also donate $50 but this will be tabled until our year-end financial meeting.

     Dorothy Hjermstad made a motion to purchase 12 carafes due to the current plastic ones leaking. Ann Romo seconded. The Spring Mission envelopes have been handed out. The money collected goes to the WMF headquarters. May 10 will be the Sunday we honor our graduating seniors with cake at coffee hour and then each will be given a quilt during the church service. We have seven seniors this year and special thanks to Ali Coulter and Ann Romo who worked to personalize each quilt for the graduate.

     The Central Tri-State Spring Rally will be held at Our Saviors in Cannon Falls, on Saturday, April 18. Guest speakers are Pastor and Becky Abel. There is a poster on the bulletin boards. Upcoming in June is our annual salad luncheon on Tuesday, June 16. We need to remember our shut-ins during this time. Instead of a cheer committee our circles will be sending cards with personal messages when they meet.

     Just a reminder that we all need to leave the kitchen clean or cleaner than when we arrived especially in light of the Coronavirus situation. Remember to unplug coffee pots, wipe down all the tables and counters, empty the garbage, etc. Maybe we should have a sign posted that can help anyone using the kitchen. Sue Davidson made a motion to adjourn the meeting. Seconded by Tamra Berg
