Heart Sister Banquet

On Sunday our church was hosting our annual Heart Sister Banquet.  I had the honor of helping with it along w/3 other great gals.  I thought Evie did a fantastic job on table decor that I thought I would share.

Yes...we (I) did paper plates as I didn't want to be in the kitchen all night doing dishes.  We had lasagna, bread, cookies, cherry dump cake, chocolate chip peanut butter torte, and then each lady brought some type of salad.  A lady from Manhattan was going to come and talk about quilts, but because of the weather she had to cancel.  So we just socialized...It was so much fun. 

Next year it was decided that we would still have a banquet, but try doing something different called a Purse Ministry.  We are going to try and do this twice a year.  I think in June we might fill diaper bags/big Purses with essential baby items and take them to various shelters and pregnancy centers.  Then in February have another banquet and fill purses to take to shelters that deal a lot w/battered women and families.  Thinking we will fill these purses with things that women so often forget when leaving an abusive circumstance.  I think it will be fun and what lady doesn't like a new purse?
