When three groups of ladies get together, there is sure to be fellowship, fun and service. This past week, Kelly Redinger, Delta Theta Tau Representative, brought materials and scissors to the Catherine Casper Life Center where she was met by the sisters of Catherine’s Cottage, the “Sister Power” support group, and the Ancilla Women’s Volleyball Team for their third annual blanket making project.
Redinger delivers the finished baby blankets to the St. Joe Regional Medical Center in Plymouth. Redinger expressed her gratitude, saying, “I am very thankful to be a part of such a wonderful group of ladies, I hope we can continue this project for many years.”
Sr. Marlene Ann Lama, PHJC, commented, “This was our third baby blanket gathering with the Lady Chargers. I am convinced that these exchanges between the Lady Chargers and the sisters just keeping getting better and better! It is heartwarming to see Ancilla’s vibrant young women so open and responsive to our older Sisters. They didn’t hesitate to share with us about themselves, their goals and future dreams. This inter-generational service project was filled with respectful listening, inquisitive sharing and good deal of laughter. It also confirmed the great team work that existed between the generations in getting the baby blankets made for the newborns.”
Lana Singleton, volleyball coach, expressed her appreciation, “I feel very blessed that we have opportunities like this to strengthen our inter-generational relationships with the sisters. They are amazing women and my team benefits greatly every time we spend time together. I also feel very blessed that Kelly Redinger from Delta Theta Tau came up with this wonderful idea and it is a yearly tradition now.”
