Patty Gray brought the traveling basket and gave it to Linda Schmidt who will bring it back next month.

Betty Jo McNeil introduced Bonnie Kelley and her friend Brenda Sizemore.

Bonnie is a long time friend of Betty Jo’s. They have been friends since childhood. Bonnie’s home was one of many that was destroyed in the flood. She told of being in water up to her neck. She wasn’t able to save anything. With the help of the Amish, Mennonites, Samaritan’s Purse and others too numerous to mention, she is back in her home. She said God’s hand was in it all of the way and she feels so blessed.

While enjoying delicious refreshments, a time of fellowship was had by Lynn Humphreys, Dot Feamster, Jean Foley, Betty Jo McNeil, Faye Honaker, Barbara Shiley, Linda Schmidt, Patty Gray, Colleen Walton, Kitty Loudermilk and guests Bonnie Kelley and Brenda Sizemore.
