Reflections on the weekend

Mineral Wells Index

By Sue Seibert | sue_seibert@att.net

This was a lovely, although physically painful, weekend. On Saturday the Ralph Ripley Chapter of the DAR met at First Christian Church. We planned our meetings and programs for 2012-13, and then we got down to business ... the business of making crosses, or at least decorating them.

Willie Mae Withers Hubbard, one of our most dedicated members, made a couple of dozen crosses from wooden clothes pins. They are wonderful.

Then, with flowers and ribbons supplied by various members, we set to work decorating them and getting them ready to give away for donations next October at the Crazy Water Festival. By the way, if you want one sooner, contact a DAR member. You can see photos on my Facebook page.
