Anza Thimble Club

Spring is here, and you could tell from the energy in the room at the Thimble Club’s March 2 meeting that everyone is happy to see the sunshine. We love our meeting room at the Valley Gospel Chapel, from which we have a wonderful view of the beautiful Anza mountains.

Following the invocation by Myrna Hawthorn and Pledge of Allegiance led by Marie Ghysels, we enjoyed a typical St. Patrick’s Day lunch of corned beef and cabbage, with potatoes and carrots as a side. Dessert was heavenly frosted mint brownies made from scratch by our incredible Sally Kaspar. The cooks, Annie Ashby, Linda Barnes, Pat Cheney and Sally Kaspar, were thanked for all their hard work preparing the meal.

The main focus of the business meeting was planning the Open House, scheduled for Saturday, April 8, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Valley Gospel Chapel. President Shaaron Chambers requested volunteers for baking goodies for the bake sale table, making hand crafted items for the crafts table and for creating lots of food for our anticipated guests. The members are excited about this upcoming event, where we hope to meet many ladies from Anza and surrounding communities and introduce them to the Thimble Club. There will be more information released about this event as the date draws closer.

The Thimble Club is a local philanthropic women’s group started by local farmers’ and ranchers’ wives more than 104 years ago. Join in the proud tradition of the Thimble Club. No sewing required. For information contact Shaaron Chambers at (619) 206-1268.
