All/host, no/host potluck was held on January 29, 2023

This a special was a special time to honor Ella Fredrickson for all of the years that she has served as
Coordinator of The Closet.

“In 1995, an idea was presented by Circle 5 that a source of income was needed to provide revenue to assist mission projects and improvement projects in the church as needed. The closet came to being, Tuesday, 9-2 p.m. The women’s group had always received donations for planned one-day rummage sales in the past. We opened on February 15, 1995. Helen Rentz, Dorcas Ward, Janice McGary, and Ella Fredrickson took on the project and opened their doors in February in one room (now we have 5) located in the basement under the sanctuary. We want to remember all the ladies who have worked with us. Namely Helen Rentz, Dorcas Ward, Patti Warner, Jean Damson, Dorothy Harper, Mertie Quest, Jeanette Hall, and Marion Krenzlok. They were our mentors and we have great memories of them. Vera Olson is at her home and Ruth Hein is at Greenhouse Living. All the ladies, past and present, gave their time and service to God and made us what we are. Janice, Bonnie, Linda, Marcia, Susan, Nancy, Cindy, and Ella carried on with many hours of giving. The Closet was always open – rain..snow, or sunshine. They were there to do God’s work and they were our angels. Marcia Wyett is now President; Ella has retired. All these ladies have become “family” known as the CLOSET.”
