|Cultura memorializes charter member|
Meeting at the First United Methodist Church of West Monroe in April, members of Cultura Book Club presented a brass vase to the church in memory of beloved Cultura charter member Jo Chisholm Adams, who died in 2008.
Special guests at the meeting included the children of Jo Adams: Chuck Adams, Kendy Adams Fletcher and Vicki Adams Cansler.
Associate Pastor Marla Munn was also present and participated in the service.
After a welcome by Cultura president Sue Drewitt, Gloria Camp, a lifelong friend of the Chisholm and Adams families related happy memories of her youth as she and Jo Adams grew up in West Monroe as close friends, attending the same church and schools and eventually becoming educators.
Camp reminded club members that Cultura Book Club actually was organized in the activities building of the old First United Methodist Church in 1955.
The Rev. Jon Tellifero, pastor of the First United Methodist Church of West Monroe, conducted a consecration ceremony for the vase, including responsive reading, scripture, and prayer.
He expressed gratitude to God for the life of Jo Chisholm Adams, who held leadership and teaching positions in the church, sang in the choir, and was a member of the Upper Room Sunday School Class.
Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Chisholm, as well as her children, were faithful, active members.
Following the service, the group adjourned to the church parlor for refreshments and a program by Cara Scheppf, of Cara's Boutique, in West Monroe. With scarves and jackets, Cara showed ways to accessorize an outfit and change its looks entirely.
Demonstrating many different ways to use a scarf, she brought the latest in fashion.
Recalling the true meaning of Easter, Linda Armstrong read the poem of the month, "Once in a Garden."
Hostesses were Sue Drewett, Sue Greer, and Pat Valentine.
Twenty-six members attended the meeting.
