Episcopal Church Women
On Tuesday, May 15th ECW ended their formal church season with a TEA PARTY. The theme was hats and we had quite the array of hats ... old, new, work, fun, etc. A total of 58 ladies ranging from St. Luke's members to guests attended the event. The ladies enjoyed an evening of finger sandwiches, fruit, desserts, and of course TEA! The ladies were asked to wear their 'thinking caps' as they participated in some word challenges and guessing games. We also voted on a charity geared towards women's needs, and after all votes were tallied the winner was 'Dress for Success'. The total monies collected from the TEA PARTY event amounted to $355 and will be sent along with a letter to that worthy cause.
May’s ECW Meeting
A BIG THANK YOU to all the hostess who decorated their tables and entertained in between the food, fellowship, games, music, and announcements. Without you the event would not have been the success it was. Our auditorium looked quite exquisite with the variety of tea pots and table settings. Also a thank you to the committee members, and other ECW ladies, who helped on Tuesday with the set up.
ATTENTION all members of St. Luke's ... during the month of June ECW will be collecting toothpaste and toothbrushes for our annual Christmas Stocking Project. A tub will be placed in the lobby at the elevator in the auditorium for the collection of these items. We are looking for toothbrushes wrapped individually and the small sample size toothpaste (no larger than 3oz.). You can donate whatever amount you feel comfortable.
This format is replacing our Christmas tree with ornaments (Christmas in July) that we displayed during July and August the past 2 years. Each summer month will be a different collection item(s). Just a reminder that the completed Christmas Stockings go to area nursing homes and hospitals in December of 2014. Our goal is to complete 125 stockings! With expenses and cost of items going up we need YOUR help to continue to meet the needs of our community.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact Beth Y.
