Our monthly meeting will be Tuesday, November 14 at 7:00 pm. All are welcome! Please join us! Bring a friend! We will meet at McAllisters (just east of Holiday Ham) for dinner at 5:30. Our program will be given by Kristen Woodward to construct our smocked coin purse.
Please bring any Wee Care gowns – finished or unfinished – to our meeting, or drop them off at Lace Cottage. Thanks!
Thoughts from Phyllis
It is finally FALL!! The trees are beautiful! I could do without the cold, wet weather we have been experiencing but love the sunny days. I am thankful for this time of year, for the calm before the holiday hustle (some of you may already have your Christmas shopping done – but not meJ). I enjoy planning for Thanksgiving dinner and not having to worry about any gifts.
This is the best time of the year for college football Saturdays! As I watch football, I am working on my grandsons outfits for the holidays. Then I will have to get in gear for multiple trips to see Santa with the boys. In the meantime, I am gathering recipes for Thanksgiving and have made several trips to Sur la Table – what a fun store! I have Thanksgiving at my house for 25-30 people and look forward to our old family recipes as well as some of the new dishes we try each year.
I must reflect on all of my blessings as well, counting each of you among them. I hope that each of you has a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving. God bless.
See you Tuesday!

Wee Care Gowns Workday– 4th Tuesday of Each Month from January – October.
Mark your calendar for our next Wee Care Workday will be the 4th Tuesday in January – January 23, 2018 at Lord of Life Lutheran Church (Poplar Pike). Please make plans to come for all or part of the day - it would be a great help. We need folks to bring sewing machines to sew the outfits that have been pinned.
This will be our first Wee Care workday of 2018, so it would be great to have extra hands to help assemble these precious outfits!
