|Ottoville CLC holds successful fundraisers|
|Monday, October 15, 2012 2:24 PM|
Fourteen members and five guests attended the October meeting of CLC Council 30 in the parish center at Ottoville.
Speaker for the evening, Beth Huffman, gave a very inspirational talk and told of how she became interested in people with cystic fibrosis (CF) and how the proceeds of the books she has written go to the CF foundation. A check was presented to her a check for that cause.
Our business meeting followed.
Jean Hilvers gave the secretary’s report and Annette Hilvers gave the treasurer’s report.
Discussed was held about recent successful fund raisers: the casino trip in August and the dinner prepared and served for Fr. Kent Kaufman’s group from Toledo.
Special thanks was extended to all who helped for both activities: the help on the bus trip and those who worked in the kitchen and helped serve the dinner for the Toledo group and those who baked the cakes for dessert. The council served 52 people from the bus and 10 guests and appreciates the wonderful cooperation from the members.
The council donated money to the Church of Good Shepherd in Compton, Ky., for the work the nuns do there for the needy in the Appalachia region. Other donation went to the parish for the annual festival and to the St. Marys cemetery fund in remembrance of Fr. Don Mueller.
The group will purchase some needed items for the parish kitchen, which will benefit all using it. A special thanks to Dee Schlagbaum for the work she does there and for helping the council.
Mass for the living and deceased members will be on Jan. 16 at the 8:10 a.m. Mass.
After some discussion, a motion was made to keep the same officers for the coming year. They are: President Ruth Miller; Vice President Martha Fischbach; Secretary Jean Hilvers; Treasurer Annette Hilvers; and Trustees Ethel Recker, Joan Ruen and Joan Wessell.
The raffle was won by Eileen Kemper.
The Christmas party will be on Dec. 10 in the family room of the parish center. It will be a dinner catered by Vaughn Horstman’s BBQ Express. Cost to members will be $5. Details will follow later in the parish bulletin. The committee is Joan Ruen, Sharon Meyer and Carol Giesken.
Meeting was closed with prayer; and refreshments were served by Phyllis Turnwald and Mary Ellen Eversole.
