You will get a loving welcome at the Abilene Christian Women’s Club Coffee on Thursday, February 1, 2018, from 9:30 – 11:15 a.m. at the Elks Club, 417 NW 4th St.  The theme for February is “Love Birds.” All women are invited to this monthly event and are encouraged to attend. At the monthly coffee, we share friendly fellowship, tasty refreshments, delightful decorations, joyful music and inspiring speakers!   

Have you been feeding and watching a colorful array of birds in your yard this winter?  The Special Feature Speaker for the month of February is Chuck Otte, the Geary County Extension Agent. Chuck grew up on a family farm in northwestern Nebraska.  He received his bachelor of Science and Masters degrees in Agronomy at the University of Nebraska.  He has been an avid bird watcher and naturalist since his boyhood days.  Currently, Chuck is the secretary of the Kansas Ornithological Society (KOS).  He has served as editor for the KOS quarterly newsletter, “The Horned Lark” and is a past president of that organization.  At present, he also serves as Secretary of the Kansas Bird Records Committee.  Everyone will want to be present for his most interesting and informative talk on “Wintertime Backyard Bird Feeding.”  Chuck’s education and experiences make him well qualified to enlighten us about our feathered friends. 

Nancy Holmgren from Salina, Kansas is the Speaker for February.  The title of her talk is “God’s Mysterious Ways.”  Life is full of surprises.  Will we find joy and goodness?  It’s a mystery!  Come and find out!    Nancy is a mother and grandmother.  She has a dog grooming and boarding business, Pretty Pets for 25 years. 

The Gathering Music will be played by pianist, Linda Brown from Abilene, KS.   Vocalist, Jackie Bailey, from Abilene, KS will perform Special Music.
