The Associate chapter of Kappa Kappa Kappa met at the First United Methodist Church on Monday, Nov. 7, at 6:30 p.m. After a delicious dinner of beef and noodles prepared by the Sarah Circle, a program was presented by Jennifer Chamberlain and Heather Hopkins about the Serving On the Street program. They updated us on the many activities SOS is involved in at this time of year. SOS is hosting a Thanksgiving dinner as well as planning their Christmas projects which include providing shoes for 300 children and a filled Christmas stocking for all their elementary children. Work is progressing on their shelter on C. Daniel Biggs Street and they are working on funding for their community center in the former Brazil Junior High building.
The meeting was called to order by President Jacque Reberger with the usual song and verse. Roll was taken and the minutes of the September meeting were read and approved. Cards will be sent to various shut in members and to the family of Dorothy Snell, a charter member of the Beta chapter, who passed away today. Janice Clark presented the treasurer's report which was approved.
There were no new bills. Correspondence was read from SOS and thank you notes were received from the Joe Thomas family and the Humane Shelter.
Under Old Business, it was noted that items were brought for the Humane Shelter this month. Ellen Packard reported on the East Side Angels project and its needs.
Under New Business, we decided that at the December meeting, we will each bring a pair of shoes and socks and a stocking filler item for the SOS children. In addition we will need to bring a personal item for a 16-30 year old woman, unwrapped, for the LEAAP Center's moms.
The telephone committee will remind members of those donations when they make calls for the December meeting.
Next month's committee will be Luann Grey, Margie Cauldwell and Teresa McCullough. We will be meeting at the First United Methodist Church on Dec. 5 for our Christmas party. There will be a 6 p.m. social time with snacks and music by Steve McCullough, followed by the meal at 6:3 p.m.
Thanks to tonight's committee Susie Freeman, Kim Stearley, Kathy Bell and Elaine Stephens. The meeting was adjoined with the closing verse. There were 23 members an one guest, Jana Becker, present. The Secret Sister gifts were won by Susie Freeman and Kathy Bell.
