On July 9th, Emamnuel WMF honored their senior members with a brunch at Aspelund.  Twenty-four members attended which included the hostesses.  Hostesses for the day were Jan Strand, Lori Lyon, Marit Lang and Molly Barness.  Janice Nelson gave devotions from Psalms 37:1-8.  Tamra thanked everyone for coming and especially the hostesses.  A thank you note was received from Dan Sholing, thank the WMF for the quilt.  He was Emmanuel's only graduate this year.  Discussion was held regarding meeting at the Sunset Home in August.  There is no longer a Sunset Home Auxiliary but it was decided to have a program at the home on August 13.  Rachel Circle will meet at 1:30 pm for Bible study and then at 2:30 pm Karen Melhouse will display her vintage aprons and share some stories with the residents.  Wanda Yngsdal will provide treats.  All WMF ladies are invited to attend.  The Sunset Home's Chaplain; Nancy Edwardson, is leaving at the end of summer so it was mentioned to keep this program in our prayers.  Pastor Nancy conducts the Sunday worship services along with individual visits to the residents and she will be missed.  Jeff Benson is a member of the Board of Directors, so they have some important decisions to make concerning the Chaplain position.

Upcoming events are the September appreciation potluck for new members and Sunday School teachers.   Date to be confirmed with possible council involvement.

Our annual Singspiration will be on Sept. 15 at 7pm.  For the program, Mai Petterson, Dorothy Hjermstad, Sarah Tennessen, Kathy Gullickson.  Hostesses will be the FBI Bible Study group.

Emmanuel WMF will host the Central Tri-State District Fall Rally on October 12.  Hauge will serve the morning coffee.  It was decided a hot dish would be served with a committee selected to make the final decision.  Members of this committee are Tamra Berg, Eileen Burgess, Ann Romo and Carol Gjemse.  Desserts will be needed as well.  The committee will let us know what is needed as the date gets closer.  The theme for the rally will be Home Missions with Jim and Linda Johnson as the speakers.  The youth group will assist with favors for the rally.

We were reminded of the November annual business meeting on Nov. 12.  There will be an election of officers, the yearly distribution of funds and the planning for the 2020 WMF calendar.

There was some discussion of the serving of morning coffee.  It appears the numbers are down due to late church and no Sunday School.  We encourage people to sign up on the sheet on the bulletin board.  Also, Vacation Bible School meals were discussed.  The ladies agreed to have three kitchen helpers for each meal to make the food and serving easier.

Meeting was adjorned.  

Please continue to read the bulletin and the Herald for further information on the WMF activities.
