Sisterhood raffle winner finds happy home for plush afghan

By Patty Lewis

Sisterhood held a brown bag luncheon on September 11, with all eyes on the raffle to award the afghan I made to raise funds for our annual activities.

I asked UHC Secretary Norma Collins to draw the winning ticket.

Sisterhood member Mally Frandzel was the lucky winner, but she had other ideas for her prize. We left the meeting and went straight to Mary Nasser’s home and gave her the 9 x 4-foot afghan, white with teal stripes and made of soft baby yarn.

Family is on the move as Sisterhood, congregation begin new year

By Patty Lewis

It is hard to believe September is here and the children are back in school. The weather will be changing.

Where does time go? Everything changes in life. The time will be changing and our children change.

My son and his wife are moving to Texas and my brother is moving to Texas as well. I will miss them.

Even if we know that the moves are for the best, we still wish things could stay the same. But we adjust.

Sisterhood sets Good Cheer Club for the Blind Dinner; offers afghan raffle

By Patty Lewis

Sisterhood’s meeting in May was our last until September. But that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy! We’ll be playing host for our annual Good Cheer Club for the Blind Dinner at noon Wednesday, July 11.

Our May meeting featured a carry-in luncheon. We had a good turnout and great food. It is always fun to sample the different dishes our members bring.

We enjoy guests at our luncheons as well. This month, Jane Weiner’s husband Don was our guest. We were happy to welcome the Weiners back to Terre Haute for the summer.

We’ve lost Estelle and John Corrigan, but celebrate Robert and Izaak

By Patty Lewis

I am so sorry we have lost a beautiful woman and our friend, Estelle Corrigan, this past month.

Estelle and John Corrigan were a beautiful couple. I loved to listen to them tell how they met and how much they loved dancing.

When I think of Estelle and John as a young couple, I think of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. When I think of them now, I think of them dancing in a ballroom holding each other and gazing at each other with so much love. They both will be missed as part of our congregation.
