Chrismon Team Makes Angels for Meals on Wheels

Every one of the 110 angels made for Meals on Wheels participants is different.

Those crafty Chrismon ladies are at it again.

Although the Chrismon Team’s main task is creating about 200 Chrismon ornaments for the children of the congregation each Christmastime, the 12 ladies like to tackle other tasks during the year as well, according to Carol Hair, who serves as their fearless leader.

“We always need a project,” Carol says. “We like the fellowship.”

The latest project are tiny angels made out of card stock to be used as tray favors for Meals on Wheels.

“No two are alike,” Carol says, looking over several boxes of the completed angels. “We decorated them with whatever we had in our stash.”

Some have a bit of tinsel. Others have pearls or lace. One is even a hula angel! All fit right into the palm of your hand.

The Chrismon ladies named this one the Hula Angel!

The St. John’s Meals on Wheels teams deliver to about 94 clients, so Carol and her crew made about 110, enough for every person St. John’s members serve.

“The tray favors are delightful,” says Cindy Fink, Meals on Wheels’ executive director and a St. John’s member. “Each angel is unique, and our participants will be very happy to get them.”

“We just have fun doing it,” Carol says of the team projects.

Next on the list are decorations for the congregation-wide Easter breakfast on April 21.

The Chrismon Team meets from 10 am to noon each Wednesday and invites new members any time. They’re also always in need of ideas for new crafts, craft supplies, and donations to buy supplies.
