Well, it was a glorious luncheon on Thursday. I always look forward to attending them. Joanne Ainsworth would cover classes at Oak Knoll for me. They inspired me.
Everything was impeccably done. The tables, the food, the mass, and the company. I have always felt welcome. I have been attracted to the Society for the hard work that is done cheerfully for the well being of children.
When Angela Schroeder asked me to knit hats, Norah Marie Bischoff taught me how to use circular needles. ...After my sister passed away I decided to dedicate all of my hats (and other knitting) to her honor. She would laugh if she knew that I can knit! I was not proficient, in her opinion!
I have a quote from Mary Virginia Merrick in my foyer. My good friends at Oak Knoll had it made when I left. I read it every morning. It is my lifes inspiration. You can imagine how stunned I was to receive any award, and especially one that bears her name. I thank you with the most humble heart.
I will definitely attend the Rummage Sale. I am hoping to get up (to NJ) for the School Suppplies days as well.
Thank you for seeing the vision and living the mission of Mary Virginia Merrick. I am proud to help.
