On Tuesday, April 9, our Daughters of Isabella, St. Luke's Circle 239, celebrated some important anniversaries and a new member. The celebration was held at 6:30 p.m. in the chapel in Prairie Mission Retirement Center. A specially decorated cake and refreshments were served as part of a the evening that commemorated the 96th anniversary of our circle and the long term service of two special members:
Regent Linda DeGarmo presented Lorene Van Leeuwen with a Certificate of Achievement recognizing her 70 years of membership with Circle 239. April was a special month for Lorene because she also celebrated her 104th birthday.
The next presentation was also special for Linda. She presented her mother, Mary Jean Zandler, with her 50-year membership certificate of achievement. During the celebration, Kathie Grosdidier was also recognized as our newest member.
Congratulations to All!
