May President’s Letter

President’s Letter

May 2024

Dear Friends,

Spring is in full bloom, and it certainly feels like a time of new beginnings.  We’re in the midst of 3 family graduations – my nephew is now a Doctor of Nursing and studying to pass his boards to become a Nurse Anesthesiologist, we will have a cousin with a Masters in Theology on May 11th, and her son will graduate high school on May 18th.  Made a quilt for Meredith that I brought for show and tell last month.  I’m sure many of you have graduations and weddings over the next few months, such a beautiful time of the year!

Meredith asked me to create a quilt for her son as he goes off to college in the fall.  The catch is to use the lining from his father’s army poncho, which protected him during several tours in Afghanistan.  It’s made of rip-stop nylon, so I’m expecting a challenge using it for the back.  Virginia Tech colors on the top.

Magdalene, the comfort dog we support by making scarves for her special collar, has grown!  I’ll be publishing a new (slightly larger pattern) on our website and will have copies available at the May meeting.


  • Please come a few minutes early so that you can be in your seat right at 9:30 when the fun begins.
  • If you are able, please park in the side parking lot at the church
  • Wear your name tag and bring a $1 donation and/or donation item for Cornerstone Lutheran

Happy Mother’s Day!
