Mary McCord was the featured speaker with Laura Vandivort as the guest soloist. Above, Judy Lopp reads the names of members, who are now deceased. As each name was read, Nora Fuchs rang a bell. Also taking part were Patty McPheeters and Pat Jackovic. The group's emphasis is on praying for those in need. For more photos from the Standard Democrat, log on to our electronic edition.
