As promised, I revisited the repast for Laity Day with him as some of the ladies at the meeting suggested. It was suggested that if a repast was desired, donations should be made to provide the food since no money was allotted in the church's budget. I suggested that some donate parts of a small menu like finger sandwiches, sheet cake and punch. Sister Nona suggested the lady who has done catering for us in the past. The last such venture with her cost about $200 or more. It was suggested that the Sisterhood members donate $10 each to make this happen and ask the Brotherhood to do the same.
However, after speaking with Brother Galloway, it makes more sense to stick with the original plan as decided in the planning meeting. Their membership has been tapped for another event and there is not the same number of active members he had a few months ago. There were about 8 members of Sisterhood present. That would mean we could raise a possible $80-- far from what would be needed for a caterer. Original plan: No repast. Final plan: No repast.
VP Sister Nona will serve as the Sisterhood rep at Laity Day. My quarterly checkups at MD Anderson requires that I travel to Houston on that day.
The Sisterhood was informed of the program and agreed that members will wear black.
We agreed to send something for Sister Lenora Benard's services and lift Sister McKnight in prayer. We need to keep Peggy Wallace in our prayers as well.
Kairos #67 is scheduled for the end of this month. Team membership is still available. Visit the website at listenlistenlovelove.com for the schedule and for the application.
