Pastor Angela DeFisher was our guest speaker for Lent March 8. The rest of this month and the first two Wednesdays of April we will continue to have our local pastors give a Lent Program.

Birthday Dinner was held March 9. We had a very good crowd. Sonja Koslowsky played the piano, and after the luncheon, Gayla Ratzlaff gave us a very informative program. A lot of our seniors stay in close touch with her during the year, but we always have new ones coming in, so it’s nice to be reminded of all that she does for us. There is something new each year and we need to stay informed. Thank you for making this a great day.

Our board meeting was held March 13, and Grief Share March 14. Lent was given by Pastor Rick Rehmert, and our Vintage Bank of Kansas held an open house March 15. It was good to see familiar faces and meet the new Vintage Bank Kansas family.

We end with the SCMC Meeting held in Peabody March 17. Chair massages will be given by Shirley Davis March 20. Business meeting will be March 21. On March 22, Pastor Roger Charles will give the Lent Program.

Hope you have a good week.
