 Y’s Women

Y’s Women met April 9 at the Hormel Historic Home. Steve King, Austin City Council member was the program speaker. We enjoyed hearing of the many issues the city deals with such as annexations, flood control, housing and diversity. Austin has a good quality of life and it is a great place to live.

A short business meeting was held by Carol Lembrick. Members discussed several events at the Hormel Home that Y’s Women will have an opportunity to assist with.

Hostesses were Louise Anderson and Audrey Carroll.

The next meeting will be a potluck supper May 14 at 5:30 p.m.  Peggy Keener will be the program speaker.
