A program was presented on Building a Butterfly Garden by Lauren Boyken of the Screven County Extension Office. Pastor Barb Koch of Zion Lutheran Church led the afternoon worship service. During the meeting, officers were elected and installed by Pastor Barb. Cheryl Pannal of Zion was elected as Cluster Leader. Julie Barichivich of Jerusalem was elected Cluster Recorder.
Pat Cunningham of St. Paul ‘s Lutheran (Savannah) was elected Member at Large. The annual convention this year will be held Sept. 10-12 in Marietta.

All women who are members of the ELCA are automatically members of the Women of the E.L.C.A, and are invited to attend.
