We began in September 1963, when nine ladies gathered to discuss having a Lutheran Bible study group in Kerrobert, Saskatchewan. An LWML society was formed and it continues 50 years later.

President Colleen Hill welcomed the nineteen people gathered at the Kerrobert Senior Citizens Hall. Betty Hepting (now of Unity, Sask.) the first president, Teresa Williams (now of Kindersley, Sask.) the first secretary-treasurer and Pastor Ray Pomplun (now of South Dakota), pastor of Holy Trinity in Luseland in 1963, were present for the celebration. Marjorie Fruson of Saskatoon, who served as the group’s first vice president, was unable to attend.

Included in the program were letters of congratulations, a power point presentation showing events over the years, a brief history and reports of various conventions attended. Most important over the years were the Bible studies inspiring our lives and strengthening our faith in Jesus Christ our Lord.
