Roll Call was to give an Irish and/or Easter saying and the wearing of the green and was answered by 6 members with much fun and laughter! There was also one more membership paid. Secretary Liz Goodwin read the minutes from the February meeting and Treasurer Betty Telford presented the financial report to date. All were approved. Program: it was planned to set up a Committee Meeting to sort through all the W.I.

Betty Cochrane Telford Holy Spirit, you who makes everything clear to me, who enlightens all paths, leading to my ideal, who gives me the divine gifts of forgiveness, forgetting the wrongs done by me and who is with me every moment of my life. I want at this moment, to thank you for everything and so, strengthen once more my wish of never being separated from you, because of, or in spite of material illusions. Thank you for your mercy towards me and those dear to me. (This prayer should be said during three consecutive days. The grace requested will be obtained following the three days of prayer.
