A delicious pitch-in meal was enjoyed by 10 members and four guests.

Following the meal a candlelight memorial service led by Jane Keith was held in honor of former DAR member Wilma Ray, 86, who passed away Monday May 21, 2012. Following a moment of silence, everyone sang, "How Great Thou Art" followed by prayer.

Members shared special memories and good times that they had had with Wilma.

We were honored to have Wilmas' daughters, Ruth Ann Smith, Mary Ellen Moody, granddaughter Emily Walters and great-granddaughter Abby Walters present at our meeting.
