Ladies of The Guild enjoyed the Installation Coffee on May 11, 2018 at the home of President and Mrs. Sloan. The lovely event was chaired by Rhonda Ekholm and Jodi Eby. Assisting with the brunch were Jane Ann Bickham, Nancy Penney, Cookie Peeler, Anne Roper, Debra Perich and Judy Childress who furnished delicious refreshments. To add to the beautifully arranged table were gorgeous flower arrangements. The variety of foods, the beautiful weather and fellowship with members and guests made for a very special event.
Guild President Ruth Alford presented The Guild’s gift to Sharon Saunders. Dr. Sloan next presented Ruth with a framed Bible verse from a 1600’s Bible as gratitude for her two years of service. Dr. Sloan gave a very interesting and informative update on HBU, as well as mentioning the graduation ceremonies to be held the following day. Peggye Jane Gibson gave a very inspiring speech and lovely, heartwarming introduction of The Guild’s incoming President, Cheryl Kaminski. Cheryl emotionally thanked everyone for their confidence in her and remarked that she is certainly looking forward to working with all of the ladies and this wonderful organization. Her theme was “faith of the mustard seed”, as round in Matthew where it is written that nothing is impossible and the smallest of seeds becomes the largest of plants. We look forward to serving this devoted, wonderful incoming President.
