 Salisbury Woman’s Club May meeting

At the May meeting, Salisbury Woman’s Club members enjoyed the saga of Lucy Vargas as she described how she has adjusted to life in the United States, including mastery of the English language, with the assistance of Char Molrine, a tutor with the Rowan County Literacy Council. Barbara Lloyd planned the program and introduced Lucy.

Ann Bingham, chaplain, prepared devotions centered around “What is Beauty?” with personal and Biblical examples. She was assisted by Betty Mohs.

Angelia Bates, president, presided at the business session where members decided to contribute to “Impact Summer Reading,” and made plans for future projects.

Margaret Owen and Barbara Lloyd, hostesses, decorated the tables with a Spring theme.

The next meeting will be June 10 at the Club House.
