NEW CUMBERLAND - The Point Pleasant Ladies Aide met Sept. 12 at the Point Pleasant Methodist Church on Wylie Ridge with President Carolyn Allison calling the meeting to order.
Allison lit the memory candle in remembrance of those unable to attend due to illness, travel or other obligations.
Luanne Huff gave devotions, with a focus on making a difference in someone's life. She read the new "Footprints in the Sand" and the "Starfish Story" to emphasize the theme.
This was followed by a prayer and refreshments. The tables were decorated with items from the sea to carry out the "Footprints" theme: shells, sand items, a net, paper footprints, bottles and colored glass.
Linda Marsh read the minutes; Kathleen McDonald read the financial report and thank-you cards; and the Sunshine Fun was collected.
Members made final plans for the display baskets for the Hancock County Oldtime Fair and New Cumberland Riverfest. Members completed a work schedule for the fairs. The group will offer Hancock County afghans for $25 at the Riverfest.
Members agreed to make a donation to the Wounded Warriors, two classroom teachers who are also members and toward a local family's travel expenses. The group established a memorial policy in the case of a member's death or that of a member's spouse or children.
Members sang "God Be With You 'Til We Meet Again" to close the meeting.
Mary Dolan, Linda McNeil and Loranna Tate were hostesses.
The next meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 10 at the Point Pleasant Methodist Church on Wylie Ridge.
