Sisterhood maintains in Covid cocoon, assists religious school with VCSC Backpack Fund

By Patty Lewis

We’ve been through an election and the holidays are approaching but with COVID still around, I’m sure everybody understands that our lives have changed and things won’t be getting back to normal just quite yet.

Thanksgiving dinner may experience some adjustments as we alter routines to protect our families. Hanukkah is coming in December and it, too, won’t be the same. Sisterhood will not operate its traditional Hanukkah gift shop this year.

Religious school remains involved in the community and has taken on the Vigo County School Corporation Backpack Program as its latest project.

Patty’s plan for the day — cast worries aside and play in the yard with Robert

By Patty Lewis

I find myself checking the calendar these days to try to fix my place in time. But I guess time loses its meaning as this Covid-19 has really messed up the days and months in our lives.

Every evening, Ralph wants to know my plan for the next day.

Sometimes I tell him I think I will take a long trip and I will be back when this is over.

Of course, I know my family needs me here and we have no idea when our predicament will end. We just live day by day and stay home until it’s necessary to go out.

Hanukkah will begin the evening of Sunday, Dec. 22, so now is the time to visit our holiday gift shop in the Vestry Room.

Sisterhood will meet for pie in November, seeks charity project ideas for new year

By Patty Lewis

Sisterhood continued one tradition over the summer and then resumed its fall schedule with a lunch meeting at McAlister’s Deli and work on the 5780 Rosh Hashanah greetings booklet.

Thank you all for your donations and dues, and to the anonymous individual who left a lovely note and generous donation at Norma’s office.

We will next meet for our second-Tuesday luncheon event at noon Nov. 12, 2019, at Grand Traverse Pie Company, 75 North Third St. in Terre Haute.

Please come on out, and bring some new ideas for Sisterhood projects. I’m thinking of a small fundraiser. If you have a charity in mind, please let me know!
