Y’s Womens Club

Y’s Womens Club held its Christmas party on Dec.14 at the Hormel Historic Home. A potluck supper was enjoyed. We especially enjoyed the holiday music of the Austinaires under the direction of Brian Johnson.  They are a delightful group and we so appreciated their time spent with us.

A short business meeting followed.  Anita Ulwelling announced the proceeds from the luncheon card party sponsored by the Y’s Women in November was given the Hormel Home.  Members contributed to the Hy Vee Feed A Family Program.

The next meeting will be at noon Jan. 11 at the Old Mill.
