Pastor Keith Clow led the opening devotions based on Ephesians 2:8-10. Linda Ruhl presented the minutes of the Spring Rally. Carolyn Schreiner gave the treasurer’s report.
Following various committee reports, Mary Myers presented highlight of the National LWML Convention held in June in Pittsburg, Penn. After a soup and sandwich lunch, Amy Vaughn from the Kids in Motion program spoke to the group about her work, emphasizing that the purpose of the program started out being a work-oriented program, but now it is a service program and the youth are paid according to their attitude rather than by the work they do.
Amy told about the different projects they have undertaken in the summer with keeping the young people working and involved in their community. She brought three ladies with her and asked them questions about how they got involved in the program, what it meant to hem and what they hope for in their future.
Following this presentation, Pastor David Johnson led the group in a closing devotion. Those attending from Louisiana were Carolyn Scott, Wynetta Memke, Margo Hill and Dorothy Webb.
