The LWML of the North Dakota District met a the Alerus center in Grand Forks last week. It was a great convention. A gift of $2400 was received for the Mary Okeyo Scholarship fund. A good time was had by all. These are pictures of the Quilt Processional. I think if I were the ladies, as cold as it was in that building, I would have skipped the processional, wrapped up in the quilt and gave it for the ingathering later. There will be more about these conventions later. Minnesota Norths was held at Breezy point and a good time was had by all. We need to take a few minutes and appreciate the work of the two outgoing Presidents. Sue Corwin of North Dakota and Cheryl Peterson of Minnesota North.
