New Salem UMW

The United Methodist Women of New Salem Church in Daisy met at the home of Verla Mangels on Jan. 4. Dorothy Hahs, president, opened the meeting. A committee list for 2006 was passed around for each person to sign up for projects they wanted to help with. All members told who their elderly secret pals were in 2005 and what they had done for them. There were 36 sick/shut-in calls made during December.

Hahs went over the correspondence. The spring district meeting will be held March 25 at Perryville, Mo. The fall district meeting will be held Sept. 9 at Poplar Bluff, Mo. Other items and dates were discussed.

A note from Cletus and Stella Hahs' daughter, Beverly, was read. She was thanking the UMW for the birthday dinner for Cletus' 90th birthday.

The fourth-quarter pledge will be given to a woman in our community whose house burned.

The nursing home visitation schedule was discussed and Jackie Kurre will visit in January. It was decided the collection of loose change this year will go toward a sound system for the church fellowship hall. Kurre will check on this.

UMW voted to continue with our adopted elderly person. An offering will be taken each quarter and given to her.

UMW will host the Vigortone dinner on Feb. 23.

Mangels presented the program and refreshments were served afterward. The next meeting will be held Feb. 1 at the home of Barbara Brown. Members are to bring valentines to be signed and mailed to friends and shut-ins.
