The December meeting of the Pingree Grove Unit for Home and Community Education (HCE) will be at noon Dec. 5 at the home of Frances Stuehler in Hampshire.
This will be the annual Christmas potluck luncheon where members will be bringing hats, scarves & gloves for the Elgin Crisis Center.
At the November meeting at Char Carlsen’s in Gilberts the group discussed its plan to adopt a serviceman and his or her unit deployed overseas. They will be sending care packages every few months filled with items such as toiletries snacks and other items they may request.
