ECW Report

Elizabeth Heimbach 

2019 was a busy year for the St. Peter’s ECW. Our members continued to care for the altar each Sunday and host the monthly after-church pot luck lunches. The Royal Caterers also planned and prepared Village Dinners every month. In addition to these activities, several ECW members served dinner on February 5 to a group of the University of Mary Washington ELCM students.

ECW members also gave a reception and provided housing for PhilHarmonia, the group that performed at the concert on November 2.

Later in November, Cookie Davis hosted an elegant tea for the ECW at her house. At the tea, members decided on the charities that the ECW will support this year.

Then, in December, the ECW participated in a Christmas program for children through Caroline County Social Services. This involved buying and wrapping clothes and toys requested by the children of a family in Port Royal. And, as an additional Christmas activity, the ECW provided an array of “white elephant gifts” that were distributed at the December Village Harvest.

Now, as the New Year begins, the members of the ECW hope to continue to work on projects that contribute to our church and to our community.
