President Karen Handorf opened the meeting by welcoming the ladies and thanking them for coming out on such a blustery day. Twenty-one members answered the roll call. Shirley Young introduced the guest speaker, Carrie Theesfeld, director of Crayon Corner Pre-School and Day Care Center in Gladbrook. She is also the director of the Pre-School and Day Care in Reinbeck. Carrie had some very interesting and informative information about Crayon Corner.

Presently there are 18 children enrolled in the pre-school program. Carrie reminded the group of their annual fundraiser Valentine Dinner & Dance and silent auction.
