Celebrating 43 years

Illinois Valley Midday Connection, sponsored by Stonecroft Ministries, recently celebrated their 43rd birthday. The local group began meeting in 1970 under the name Illinois Valley Christian Women's Club. The Stonecroft organization, headquartered in Kansas City, Mo., was founded 75 years ago by Helen Duff Baugh. Stonecroft Ministries shares the Gospel of Jesus Christ with women worldwide. The local group meets monthly at Deer Park Country Club with an average attendance of 50 women. The planning team for 2013-14 is shown as follows: (front row) Cathy Granata, Arlene Brandner, Vickie Scolari and Vallerie Horschler; and (back row) Elaine Gauden, Sue Myers, Carole Ledbetter, Elana Boyer, Cindy Bair, Norma Rue, Barbara Alleman, Bonnie Huber, Mary Deming and Anita Hybki.
