CELEBRATING GRANDMOTHERS, MOMS AND DAUGHTERS: Fourteen of us gathered at Ruby Tuesday on May 5 to celebrate women. Our lunch began with prayer and we enjoyed several readings honoring our many different stages of life. Our youngest female attendee was Mady Bauer’s granddaughter, Hazel, age 2, attending along with her mom, Diana Linder, and Aunt Mary Ann Bauer. Many thanks to Therese Taylor, Arlene Kava and Judy Schuster for the nice get together.
Michelle LaMar, the director of the Medina Community Services Center, joined us to share some of the Centers’ activities with us. Every month Michelle lets us know what the Center needs for their food pantry, and we continue to fill our grocery cart with what is needed most. But, remember, they also need clothing and monetary donations to continue their great work in Medina County.
We have drawn names for our “Secret Sisters” for the coming year. We will remember our Sisters on special occasions, birthday, Christmas, Anniversary, with a small gift, and the rest of the year with occasional notes of encouragement and caring.
The ladies enjoyed a lovely lunch at Olive Garden on May 20. We brought photos and shared stories of special women who have influenced our lives: mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and daughters.
SECRET SISTERS – 2016:
We have renewed our special Secret Sister Program. We have drawn names and promised to keep our Secret Sister in our hearts and prayers for the coming year. We will acknowledge our Sister’s birthdays and special holidays as well as offering comfort during times of difficulty with cards, notes and small gifts.
During our annual Women’s Salad Supper in August, we will reveal ourselves to our Secret Sisters. This is a great opportunity to grow closer to a woman in our congregation and to purposely keep her in our thoughts and prayers.
If you did not participate this year, new names will be drawn in August, so you will have another chance.
WOMEN’S ANNUAL SALAD SUPPER – AUGUST, 2016:
Our Annual Women’s Salad Supper was held at the home of Peggy Tampson, 3085 Hamlin Rd., Medina, on Thursday, August 18. We invited friends and relatives to join us. Peggy entertained us with a trivia game about the lives of Women in the Bible.
WOMEN’S LUNCHEON – 2016:
Sixteen ladies enjoyed a great lunch at the Corkscrew Restaurant, formerly a beautiful Victorian home. Prizes were given for the oldest and youngest attendees, which ranged from age 3 to 82, and for the most grandchildren, 14, and most great grandchildren, 17. Some of us have a long way to go!!!!! The Corkscrew has a great menu – stop in sometime. Many thanks to our wonderful Fellowship Committee for planning this fun day.
LADIES CRAFT NIGHT – 2015
In December we were able to create our own beautiful Christmas tree ornaments, a bell angel and snowflakes, under the direction of Mary Ann Vithous. The evening also included several wonderful desserts. Many thanks to Mary Ann and Sue Steinman who planned this fun event
Sue Steinman hosted our Annual Women’s Salad Supper. She had a Luau theme with lots of island decorations.
Dinner, as usual, was fabulous with lots of delicious salads and amazing desserts.
Peggy Tampson shared a program about courageous women in the bible and the attributes we have seen in the people we look up to and admire. She gave us much to think about and to aspire to.
As usual there was lots of good food and good fellowship at our Annual Women’s Salad Supper. Lynda Petitto hosted the dinner in the hopes that the weather would cooperate so that we could take an after-dinner dip in her beautiful pool. The water was warm but the air was COLD! Instead we enjoyed some “creative” bingo with prizes and more than a little competitiveness.
Many thanks to our great Fellowship Committee for planning this nice evening.
