Our Lady of Lourdes Altar Society met recently to honor its member of the year, Ann Hagel.
The may meeting was called to order by president Josie Marbach. All joined in the opening prayer and the pledge to the flag.
Twenty-six member and 23 guests were present. Dorothy Boehm handed out raffle tickets for the Sept. 23 games party.
Eighteen door prizes were awarded.
Hagel was presented a corsage and inscribed medallion on a chain.
She and her husband have nine children, 10 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
Her daughters, Carolyn, Barbara and Grace, and daughter-in-law, Janis, joined her at the meeting.
Hagel has served as vice-president and president of the society and helps with festival preparation as well as being involved in the community.
A meal was served, and a game of bunco played after the award recognition.
The next meeting will be Sept. 16.
