August Meeting Notes

Hello Everyone!
What a way to end our summer!!
Sixteen friends and 2 guests joined together for a night of laughs and celebration at Olive Garden, Friday night, August 27th. We had good fun, good laughs and lots of good conversation. For those of our friends not able to be there, we missed you. For those that were able to come, we are glad you made and was pouring during our arrival time. The power even went out in the restaurant for a little while but didn't affect our meals. YUM!!
We did make some decisions for future meetings. For our September meeting, we will be meeting at Shelley's house on Friday, September 24th at 6:30 p.m. We will continue with our Study Book, Bad Girls of the Bible, Ch. 5. Susan W, Louise L, Lynn S and Sandy L agreed to help with the food for the evening. (Sidenote, since this discussion, Susan W has indicated she is not available to help for Sept. Would someone else like to change places with Susan for this month?)
Lisa B informed the Circle of a potential project. She stated there is a mom in Lee County with 4 young children whose husband recently passed away from an asthma attack. The story had been recently featured in the News-Press . The family has hit upon some hard times in that her husband had been unemployed for the past couple years due to decline in the housing market. The husband was a journeyman electrician. She works in the hospitality field and her hours have also been cut. The family recently lost their home and have been struggling to make ends meet. Because they did not have extra funds for asthma medication, her husband passed away following an episode. Discussion was held that our Circle, along with any other members of the church, would offer donations of food, clothes or funds. Lisa B will contact the family to get more details. (Since our meeting, we have been collecting donations and Lisa B has been giving them to the family. Lisa B will continue to accept and deliver donations. Let her know if you are able to help.)
