A pot-luck luncheon was enjoyed by 25 members and three guests at the YWCA on Nov. 14.
The program speaker was Cara Seekings for Hospice. Her talk was on the MOLST forms. Anyone over 18 years of age should have this. It dictates your last wishes in your last days and it is how you can make your health care issues known. For information regarding this form, call Cara Seekings at 673-5255 or Hospice at 338-0033.
Shirley Kolpien, president, brought the meeting to order with the Pledge of Allegiance.
