Fr. Heiko Farewell: Alice Stadelman presented her ideas for the celebration and offered to do all the arrangements for the June 8th event.

This involves Parishioners to put an offering of prayers on a colored piece of paper which she will fold into a “flower” and be placed in an arrangement resembling a floral bouquet.

Life Teen program: Nanci asked if the Altar Society was interested in helping with the purchase of the program again. Fr. Andrew is interested in using it and is very familiar with it. After much discussion it was decided to table a decision on this till the Parish Council has had time to consider it.

The electronics and appliances are difficult to dispose of. Kathy C. will do some advertising.

Secretary Election: Since there were no nominations at this meeting. Nanci proposed that this be done at the September Tea and hope someone comes forward. Lori agreed to remain in the office for the summer in order to provide an officer quorum.

September Membership Tea: There was no volunteers to organize this so it was decided to do it as a committee.

Wish List: Kathy P. proposed a new, small refrigerator be purchased for the kitchen to hold small items so that more large containers of food can be stored in the large one. It was decided to put this on a “wish list” for next year. Kathy reminded everyone that our “Wish List” from last year was almost complete.

Parish Picnic: Elaine asked if she should be planning the August Parish picnic. She is not sure Fr. Andrew will want to do this. It was decided to go ahead with the plans because the park has to be scheduled right away. She will plan for August 10th or 17th. The picnic will have a “Jungle” theme.

The next meeting will be the Annual Membership Tea on September 25th at 7pm. Fr. Andrew will be asked to do the opening prayer and blessing.

Some employees of Tiffany’s drug store donated their Christmas Turkey’s and these were given to the needy. The remaining turkeys will be donated to the EAT program.

Old Business
Carpet: Nanci reported that the Parish Council will consider the carpet at their next meeting in March. They were happy to hear that we are willing to help pay for it. We hope to get it done during Spring Break in time for the 125th celebration.
Coffee Bags: Nanci reported that a few aprons were left and we are still selling them. Dee bought three as gifts for next Christmas. Nanci mentioned that placemats may be considered as a new project.
Cookie mixes and Christmas sales: These did not sell as well as we would have liked but, Stephanie said “we had a great time doing it”. It was reported that some of the recipes were not quite right, but when adjusted they turned out pretty good. Carol Roberts stated that she bought the Pine Cone decorations.
Call List: Stephanie stated it is working well; she used it to organize the funeral dinner that took place today.
New Business
Stations of the Cross: Altar Society has been asked to do Stations on Feb. 15th. Nanci passed around fliers with different reading programs. After looking them over it was decided to do the one titled “Way of the Cross”. Stephanie volunteered to lead the readings, Nanci volunteered to be “Reader 2”. Other members in attendance will help by holding candles.
Posting Minutes: Nanci stated that some members have asked if Altar Society minutes could be posted on the bulletin board in the Church and some even asked if they could be mailed. The idea of mailing them was disregarded due to cost. Lori reminded everyone that the minutes are posted on the Parish website. Nanci asked if it would be easier to just post a synopsis at the church. Lori stated that it would just be easier to print out another copy at home to post. This would not be a problem, but they would not be approved minutes.
Rummage Sale: Nanci brought up that dates for June are filling up and we also want to plan a “Going Away Party “for Fr. Heiko. Since there was some discussion about when he is actually leaving, it was decided to do the party on June 8th after Mass. Then, we could plan the Rummage Sale for the 13th and 14th. Nanci will get this scheduled on the Parish calendar right away.
Allison will get all our announcements put in the bulletin. The next bulletin is on the 27th.
The next meeting will be February 21st at 7pm. Since “Holy Week” will be the week of our March meeting we will meet on the 13th at 7pm. Dee volunteered to lead the prayers at the next meeting.
Stephanie closed with a prayer. Nanci adjourned the meeting at 8:10pm.
