            Reminder—call Betsy Uhrich if you know of anyone who is sick. 


Hostesses for the February 13thmeeting:  Mary Arena, Linda Schiffman, Bev Walnicki, Marina Whitacre, and Debbie Wirth

            This meeting will be at NOON in Selbert Hall.  It will be a Pot Luck Lunch.  Please bring a “lunch” dish or dessert to pass.  Captain Wayne Wolfe of the Erie County Sheriff’s Mounted Division will give an “Active Shooter” talk at 1:30PM.


            Sodality Sunday was December 16th.  There were 23 Sodalists and 6 spouses in attendance.  On January 20th, attendance was light due to a snowstorm. There were 6 Sodalists and 4 spouses.  The next Sodality Sunday will be February 17th.  Please join us at the 8 AM Mass.


February Birthdays: 7 - Vicki Kamholz, 14 - Dorothy Korn, 16 - Cass Ketten, Phyllis Andre & Fr. Gene, 18 - Eleanor Clabeaux, 24 - Rita Walter, 25 - Kathy Killelea, 26 - Rose Schaefer, 27 - Chris  Ryngwalski


            The Bake Sale will be held on February 9thand 10th. Baked goods may be dropped off as early as 4 PM on Saturday or before any Mass.  Please consider baking one or more items to sell. Pies sell especially well and we make a good profit from them.  Let’s bake enough so those attending 11:00 Mass can enjoy our tasty creations!

            Our March meeting will also be a “lunch meeting”.  Bring your own lunch in a brown bag.  After eating, we will have a pound auction to benefit the Baskets of Blessings.  Bring a wrapped item that weighs a pound.  If you are donating a food item, please be mindful of the expiration dates. No one wants to bid on something and then have to throw it out because it has long expired.


            There are still quite a few members who have not paid their dues.  Please check with Bev Walnicki to make sure you have paid!


            Our Rummage Sale will be held on April 27th. Start cleaning those closets and cupboards so we can have a successful sale.


            We will continue to collect jewelry and toys throughout the year for our Country Store Booth at next year’s picnic.
