President Corrine opened the meeting by welcoming everyone and gave an opening prayer. She then turned the program over to the Miriam Circle. Ann Bartelson gave a prayer and read a poem entitled “Bravely the Daffodil”. She then introduced Andrea Anderson, who is the director of the SEMCAC Food Shelf. She has been the director for 12 years and has seen many changes. The site saw just 60 visits and within 4 months it has grown to 400 visits. Families are eligible for 25 pounds of food per person. Most of the food comes from Channel One Food Bank and they also receive donations from HyVee and Kwik Trip. For some families the Food Shelf is the only assistance they receive, but those in need are encouraged to use other avenues that are available. She thanked RLC for their generous donations. Jeanette Colbenson read a spring poem entitled “The Green House” and closed with a prayer. President Corrine called the business meeting to order. The secretary’s report was read and approved with one correction. Good Shepherd received only 6 quilts. The treasurer’s report was read and approved showing a balance on hand of $4,630.49.
Corrine reminded everyone of the salad luncheon that will be held on May 15. Linda Paulson gave a quilting report stating that 67 quilts have been made and donated to various groups since January 1. Lynne Munter updated the group about the outing to the Commonweal Theater. It will be on June 1 for a matinee showing of Holmes and Watson. No decision was made on a date for a spring-cleaning day next year. After some discussion, Signe Cone moved, seconded by Marlene Boehmke, to hold off on the purchase of coffee pots for now. Motion carried. It was suggested that we try rinsing the pots with a little hot water before filling to see if the coffee stays hotter. Corrine noted that there is a notebook in the drawer by the refrigerator to write in supplies needed for the kitchen.
Having a float in the Rushford Days parade was discussed. Most were in favor, and perhaps using Mitch Paulson’s machinery. More information later. We have been asked to help fund a new lighting project for the Sunday School rooms. Irene Overland moved, seconded by Janice Campe to give $858.00 towards this project. Motion carried. A thank you note was read from James Torgerson for a prayer shawl he received.
The next meeting will be on June 5 at 1:30 P.M. Ruth Circle has the program which will be on the Orphan Train, presented by Ann Spartz. Priscilla Circle has the lunch and coffee for June is Hannah Circle. Birthdays and anniversaries were noted, and prayer requests were received. There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned. Corrine closed with prayer and the Lord’s Prayer and the Table prayer were said. Lunch was served by the Ruth Circle.
