Allyson Jennings joined the Dorcas Group as its youngest member this past summer. She attended meetings regularly and became an integral part of the group by participating in discussions, by learning to “string” ditty bags, by helping hang little dresses on hangers as they were brought in, and by helping count items being separated for delivery. She made herself a “working” member of the group and was completely at ease conversing and working with an older group of women.
To let Allyson know how much the Dorcas ladies love and appreciate her, they invited her to the Dorcas meeting, which she had not been able to attend since school started, and gave her a surprise made just for her — a fleece-backed throw made from a special piece of cloth she admired. She was also presented her own little ditty bag filled with a sewing kit and other goodies and a framed picture of her working in the Dorcas room.
All the Dorcas ladies, Allyson, her dad Michael, brother Peyton, the office staff, Rebekah White , Justin Moser, and others who wanted to let Allyson know they were proud of her joined together in a happy ice-cream social featuring a special cake for Allyson. The Dorcas ladies look forward to her working with them again next summer.
