The morning breakfast group at the SDC enjoys Norma’s baked treats. Her homemade goodies hit the spot. This week we had treats from Millie Jessen, and fresh peaches from Teresa Miculinich.

The Sorority Sisters traveled to Manchester Monday afternoon where Ellen Howard was the hostess. She gave a most interesting program on Camp Courageous. One year, Iowa Beta Sigma Phi chapters adopted the Camp as a service project. A former Oelwein resident, the late Leo Greco, noted bandleader, was an honorary board member for many years. He was a great promoter of the Camp Courageous pineapple and fruitcake sales. Before the hostess served dessert, the members went to the site of the annual Camp Courageous garage sale where they saw the many volunteers sorting through donations.

Keep the sick, the shut-ins and the bereaved in your thoughts and prayers. Sympathy to those who have lost loved ones. It was good to see and visit with the family and friends of Don Steimel at the Celebration of Life event at the Knights of Columbus last Saturday.
