Neillsville - Calvary Lutheran (Mother-Daughter Banquet - 1973)
A garden party theme set the mood for the Mother-Daughter banquet held Monday evening at Calvary Lutheran Church. Tables were decorated with pastel napkin rings, napkins, place cards, flowers and candles. Men of the church served the dinner and washed dishes afterwards. Co-chairmen of the event were Mrs. Kendall Smith and Mrs. Lloyd Zimmerman.
Featured speaker on the program was Harry Liebzeit of Greenwood who showed nature slides and displayed handcrafted burl bowls. Mrs. Richard Witte acted as master of ceremonies and presented a reading on the subject of daughters. Her daughter, Natalie, gave a response entitled “What is a Mother?” Mrs. Donald Clemens welcomed everyone to the banquet and led the table prayer.
Potted geraniums were presented to Mrs. Marlene Oestreich, Mrs. Patricia Schleifer, Mrs. Rasma Nagy, Mrs. Mary Heineck and Mrs. Caryl Solberg for being the mothers with the most daughters (3 each) present. Mrs. P. L. Jordahl was honored as being the oldest mother (fear some missing words here).
