TRINITY LUTHERAN WELCA
The ladies’ circles of Trinity Lutheran WELCA met recently for a salad luncheon prepared by the members. The lunch was followed by a quarterly meeting.
Vice president Delores Keith presided.
Under old business, bingo was hosted at Sodalis for the residents with five women helping. It was reported that the bunco and Ddmino night was a success with 44 people attending and all receiving a door prize. The Confirmation breakfast was held on April 23 for the confirmands and their families.
Under new business, the executive committee had two recommendations which were passed by the members pertaining to hosting bingo at the Courtyard because there are church members there, providing quarters and snacks. The second was to provide a petty cash fund for the Plates of Love committee. A third recommendation was tabled until the next quarterly meeting. A nominating committee of Carolyn Bradshaw, Pat Rickman and Becky Green volunteered to present a slate of officers for the upcoming election in September.
Lutheran World Relief tacking, etc. will be held during Vacation Bible School the week of July 16.
Shopping for school supplies for LWR will begin this summer. It was reported that United Campus Ministry at Victoria College and University of Houston-Victoria has begun this last spring. Members agreed to bake cookies for them and bring them to the Sept. 12 meeting.
The Deborah Circle oversaw drinks and paper goods. Debra Beck of Mary Martha gave a devotion on “Mothers,” explaining that teachers, aunts, counselors, and many others are mother figures.
