Successful supper and silent auction held in Lloydminster

LLOYDMINSTER, Alta. – First Lutheran LWMLC hosted their 33rd annual Salad Supper and Silent Auction on September 14, 2018. The theme was 25 Years of LWML in Canada. A skit, “The Story of LWML” since its founding in 1942 in the USA, was written by Vera May William and performed by three talented LWML actors. Vera May played Elderly Mel (LWML), Virginia Cole was Rosie the Reporter and Brenda Findlay was Gertie the Gossip. Throughout the evening, President Dee Collinge, the emcee, entertained the audience with fun facts of what was happening in Canada in 1993 when LWMLC was formed. Forty-two ladies attended the evening celebration and just over $1,000 was raised at the silent auction for Canadian Lutheran World Relief. o

Bracelet of beads tells a story

HANOVER, Ont. – The first Tuesday of each month First St. Matthews LWMLC in Hanover, Ontario, hold our regular meeting with devotions, Bible study and business.

June 5, 2018, we celebrated our 25th LWMLC anniversary with a birthday cake and a whole lot of goodies in a potluck-style lunch.

After the kitchen was cleaned up (couldn’t get away without doing that, after all who else would do it) Lois Seip had a station all set up to do a craft from a past issue of Tapestry—a bracelet representing the twenty-third psalm with coloured beads. She found many in the Sunday school cupboard and purchased others. We each made a nice bracelet to wear, each coloured bead representing a meaning from the psalm.

It was a wonderful way to spend time together and reflect on the history of LWMLC. Many questions came to mind about our past as many of our group did not enter the fold until we retired. Other women in the group were able to help answer their questions.

We ask our dear Lord to, if He sees fit, grant us many more great years to do His work here on this earth. May He give us the strength to carry on and increase our will to do His will.
