Our April luncheon was the kickoff our summer schedule. FCRTA had our April luncheon at the Lighthouse Kitchen restaurant in Rochester, Indiana. It was great seeing everyone in person.
As we went around the table introducing ourselves, we shared favorite Easter memories. Many stories were shared including the backside of chocolate bunnies that mysteriously were eaten (likely by ornery brothers), hidden eggs in the yard that turned out to be real robin eggs, stories of new Easter dresses being made for daughters and the occasional mishaps where patterns and material were accidentally discarded.
Following the reading of our October 2021 meeting minutes and the treasurer’s report, President Stephenia Barkman informed our members that Ilene Howard, Linda Wade, and Kay Horn had earned awards to be presented at the IRTA Representative Assembly in June 2022. Ilene, Linda, and Kay earned Honorable Mention certificates for volunteer hours and Kay will receive an Honorable Mention certificate for Website and an Outstanding certificate for Press Releases.
Those members in attendance include Cindy Border, Cheryl Downs, Cheri Meiser, Joellen Wynn, Judy Climie, Kay Horn, Gordon Bohs, Ilene Howard, Rosemary Clemans, Diane Weaver-Gady, Charlotte Miller, Linda Wade, and Carol Calloway, Stephenia Barkman, and Katie McCarter.
