Dinner support

TO THE EDITOR: Catholic Daughters Court Little Rose 1300 of Ellenburg recently held our annual harvest dinner, and we are very thankful for the donations that helped with the cost of supplies for our dinner.

They were very much appreciated. especially with the economy the way it is.

Thank you to all who helped with the dinner, some of you working from setting up to the end of the dinner.

Thank you to all non-members who helped; the St. Edmund’s youth group, which saved us many steps; our cooks for the delicious dinner; and last but not least, all who support our dinner year after year.

Thank you all from



Court Little Rose 1300


Treasure Chests

TO THE EDITOR: I did not know, until recently experiencing breast cancer, that there was such a wonderful group out there known as the Treasure Chests.

Ellie Collins organizes the meetings, and a wonderfully diverse group of women attends it each month.

I had so many questions and concerns that only women who have been there can relate to. Whether you have just recently been diagnosed or have been dealing with this for a while, it is a wonderful place to go and get understanding and even blow off a little steam.

Big hugs to Ellie for her wonderful work and big hugs to all the women who attend.
