meeting, Thursday, October 12, 7:00p in the Fellowship Hall
The Laurel Guild
is a women’s group that meets in one another’s homes once a month, excepting June, July, and August.
The meetings begin at 7:00pm with devotions and prayer. This group supports the work of the White
Cross by preparing school and health kits as well as roller bandages. Donations are made regularly to Mary’s
Place which serves the Burmese refugee community in the city of Rochester. The Guild is also a strong supporter
of Aurora House, a recently opened hospice in the town of Ogden. These are just a few of the areas the
Fund raisers include an annual dinner
put on in October and a bake sale at the polls on Election Day. Recipes were gathered from members and
friends of OBC a few years ago and a cookbook was published. There are still copies available for $10 each.
Often, the Guild will contribute to a financial need of the church as well as maintaining kitchen supplies.
The group also sends cards for birthdays and to those dealing with illness.
Guild's White Cross work day in March was a great success and much was accomplished!
Thanks to all OBC members who helped roll bandages and
fill school kits. Our totals were 244 roller badages and 98 school kits!
You are awesome!
