LARNED — Members and guest Pastor Katheryn Bates of the Presbyterian Church met on Tuesday, May 7 in the fellowship hall of the First Presbyterian Church.
President Colleen Wolf welcomed new member Carol Crockett of Larned. Membership lists were distributed and compiled by Alice Clapsaddle and Wolf’s daughter Tammy. Six prayer quilts have been completed in the first seven days of May. A thank you note was read from Alex and Twila Herrman for the gift of a prayer quilt.
Thanks goes to Alice Clapsaddle for the donation of two packages of batting. Colleen Wolf won the wind and rain fat quarters and the May fat quarter on flowers will be drawn at the next meeting on May 21. Merlene Baird will hold a demonstration on the “Four Block Wonder” at the meeting.
