On April 26, Chapter L of the National T.T.T. Society members met at the Olds United Church of Christ. President Barb Shelman called the meeting to order.
Seven members answered roll call with "What is the scariest thing you've ever done?"
President Shelman read the March 26, 2021 minutes and they were approved as read.
Save the date for the 2022 convention was received from Chapter A. "Shine Your Light for T.T.T." is the theme. It will be held at the Pzazz in Burlington. Chapter L will be on the Hospitality Committee. Nancy also reported receiving a Certificate of Recognition for Chapter L's 90-year membership.
The treasurer's report was given by Missy and monies had been paid to the State and National Project Fund and 2021 Camper Registrations.
Camp: The Chapter was able to secure the last two slots in the 5th-6th Camp at Crooked Creek. The registration fees have been sent. The supply list was reviewed and Nancy will pick up some items at Dollar Tree. Plans are to meet the girls and their mother at Walmart in Mt. Pleasant on May 16 to shop for clothing and shoes. The camp shower will be held at the May 24 meeting. Barb will pick up ice cream bars. T.T.T. t-shirts will be provided for each of the girls.
Charity and Camp Girls Gifts: Nothing to report.
Ways and Means: President Shelman sent an email to everyone requesting a donation since the chapter has been unable to fundraise the past year. Those who wish to donate may send a check to Missy. Karolyn will contact Unc & Neph's in Washington about doing tip night.
Bills for Payment: Karolyn presented a bill for a new Historian scrapbook. A motion was made, seconded and carried to do this.
Proposal of Names for Membership: It was reported from the Des Moines office of a possible potential member.
Adjournment: President Shelman thanked those who attended. The next meeting will be May 24 at 7 p.m. at the Old United Church of Christ. Roll call will be "Your Favorite Children's Story." The camp shower will be held at this meeting.
The meeting adjourned with the "Closing Creed."
New members recently inducted into the WACO chapter of the National Honor Society included several Crawfordsville area students: Grace Coble, Drew Diers, Jonah Egli, Lennon McClanahan, Kaylee Shelman and Zach Schmitz. Congratulations to the NHS members!
Also, congratulations go out to graduating senior Layne Kiefer, son of Robin and Tim Kiefer who was selected to be on the All-Union Senior Class of 2021 in the Southeast Iowa Union. He is one of the outstanding students chosen by school administrators. While all are in the Top 10 academically in each of their classes, they are not necessarily the ones with the highest grade-point averages. They are chosen for their accomplishments in the classrooms, in school activities and the community.
Layne, however, ranks first in his class of 24 at WACO. He has been active in band, orchestra, student council, National Honor Society and 4-H and he volunteers at the Wayland Mennonite's Food Pantry. His future plans are to get a bachelor's degree in International Studies and his career goal is to work for the U.S. State Department.
