The Rushville building is open on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 9 to 11 a.m. There is a container in front for those who wish to donate new or gently used shoes at other times. Ruth mentioned that even very worn tennis shoes can be donated, as these can be shredded and recycled. Volunteers are always needed and welcomed. For those wanting more information they can be found on Facebook, and a website: changingfootprints.com.
Following the program, Bud thanked Louise Kendall for the many years she made cards that were sent to shut-ins and for birthdays. Louise will no longer be doing this, and if anyone would like to volunteer, talk to Bud. The opportunity drawing was won by Sue Moster, who very kindly donated her winnings to Changing Footprints. Brag for a quarter followed. Claire Mercer paid to tell a Christmas joke, and Connie Schakel told about a grandchild who showed a sheep at the North American Livestock Show and won Grand Champion. Nan Prout then paid to congratulate Connie, and Dick Moster bragged about Sue’s nephew who competed in the Final Four tennis tournament for Delta High School and won the Truster Award. Phyllis Fecher’s grandson has passed the bar in New Jersey, and Bud’s granddaughter is now a licensed mortician in Greenwood. Merrill Carrigan reported having two doctor’s appointments the day before with his last quarter, and Louise Kendall said that while in the hospital recently, she found the food very good. Karen Ann Smith reported that the Community Thanksgiving meal prepared at Main Street Christian Church had served 678 this year. Pin money was collected, and October, November and December birthdays were recognized.
The next meeting will be at noon Thursday, March 27 at Center Christian Church.
