Sisterhood takes time off until March, plans kitchen shower

By Patty Lewis

Sisterhood held our final meeting of the season in November in the new Meadows Cafe at Meadows Shopping Center. We decided we enjoyed having lunch together and so each month we will find a different restaurant where we can get together. I’m going to check out the Fly-IN Cafe at Terre Haute Regional Airport for our next meeting in March 2019.

We also hope to schedule a shower to replenish the Temple kitchen, and could use some first aid items as well. We will be sending out a flyer between now and March and you can bring your items to the March meeting or drop them by the Temple.

Sisterhood sets final meeting until March, opens Hanukkah gift shop

By Patty Lewis

November is a changing of the time, a changing of the leaves and definitely a turn to cold weather. It’s also a time for turkeys, pumpkin pie and family gatherings. But everyone doesn’t have a big family that gathers for the holidays, as you see on the Hallmark Channel.

So, if you have a few empty chairs around your table for Thanksgiving and you know someone who will otherwise be alone for the holiday, now is a good time to think about them.

Speaking of holidays, Hanukkah will begin the evening of Sunday, Dec. 2, and Sisterhood has set up the gift shop in the Vestry Room. Contact me or Norma at the Temple and stop by any weekday to shop!

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.
