There was discussion on attending county and area meetings in the upcoming months. Laura Sevy gave an informative talk on Elder Abuse and answered questions about reporting and where to find help. Thinking of you cards were prepared for friends and neighbors.

26 Heart Pillows sewn by Cassandria Perkins were stuffed by members . These are to be sent to Charleston Area Medical Center as gifts for heart patients. Nonperishable foods were collected for a local food pantry.

A St. Patrick’s Day themed lunch was served by hostess Blanche Knicely after the business meeting with a prayer of thanks sung by all.
