Trinity Church Women met for their annual salad luncheon on April 4. Bev Jackson Cotter, co-president, gave the welcome, and LeAnn Juveland led in devotions. The table prayer was sung accompanied by Dorie Schou at the piano. Schou also provided piano music before and during the lunch.

Following a delicious lunch, Jan Drews announced the program. Rachel Christensen, who is a certified harp practitioner at Good Samaritan Society, gave a beautiful program and answered questions.

Co-President Ema Berthelsen called the meeting to order. Secretary LaVonne Eggers read the Dec. 7, 2011, minutes, which were placed on file. Treasurer Marcia Petersen gave the treasurer’s report that showed a balance of $921.34.
