We are lucky to have found a wonderful lady, Cheryl Wittwer, to help us with the February 20th meeting. Her husband is a member of Arabia Temple, but they live Alvin so maybe we can entice him to join El Mina as an associate member. She is a respiratory therapist at Children’s Memorial Hermann and works mainly with neonates. She also flies as part of a specialty team to transport patients to her hospital. Since she is a certified CPR instructor I have asked her to show us the basics of CPR. This is not to certify us, but to help us gain some knowledge of CPR as to when and how to apply it correctly. We thank Cheryl for agreeing to help. If you know someone who would like to attend this meeting or might benefit from this training, please bring them. We are looking forward to meeting Cheryl and learning this skill.

We will have a basket for raffle at this meeting. It will be an exciting basket so be sure to purchase tickets! There will also be birthday cupcakes for all the members who have a birthday in February or had one in January. Also, this will be our first meeting since the new Potentate was installed so if there are any questions about the upcoming year, now is the time to ask.

I am planning the ladies meetings for the rest of the year so if anyone has ideas or would like to lead a meeting, please let me know. All help is very welcome. Next month our meeting will be in Beaumont and Virginia Kimbrough will be bringing the basket fo

raffle. Take care, be safe and see you all soon!!
