More than 30 guests which included LOC members, husbands and other invited guests gathered at the Hughes Center located at St. Matthias for a gala social and dinner. Elegantly printed programs prepared by Jackie Bates promised a memorable occasion. Co-president, Debbie Self, opened the event with words of gratitude and pride for what has been accomplished over the years. Debbie also read a memoriam list of members. Father Milton Jordan, pastor at St. Matthias gave an appreciative message that was also an inspiration to the LOC to continue its good works. After Father blessed the food, all enjoyed a delicious dinner and dessert prepared by caterer Laurie G. Williams of Kingdom Catering. During dinner Arlene Taylor shared a slide presentation which included over 150 photos highlighting past and present day LOC events. Kathy Dowell, archivist, further enhanced the focus of the celebration by reading a history of St. Matthias Ladies of Charity. The evening was filled with music, food, conversation and laughter.
