Old Business – Christmas project and Community Service projects – Patsy moved we make pillowcases for Grace Place; Linda A seconded the motion.  It was also suggested to bring Ziploc bags, cups, napkins, or small storage containers to give to Grace Place as well, as they do not have anything to use currently for handing out snacks, etc. to the residents.
