Ladies of the HBU Guild enjoyed The Installation Coffee on May 12, 2017 at 10 am in the home of President and Mrs. Sloan. The lovely event was co-chaired by Betty Vernon and Jeanne Walker, along with the help of Debbie Andrews, Cookie Peeler, Lisa Hartman, Kathleen Evans, Jane Ann Bickham, Colleen Fellows, Janet McGuire, Kathy Thompson, and Judy Childress who prepared a delicious menu. The beautiful table setting was centered with lovely flower arrangements and special dishes prepared by the committee.
Ruth Alford, our President, presented the Guild’s gifts to the University to Sharon Saunders. (Dr. Sloan was unable to be with us). Anne Roper conducted the very inspiring Installation Ceremony for the 2017-2018 officers. Ruth’s scripture for this year is “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and he will make your path straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6. Anne’s presentation likened the Guild to conditions of the heart. The heart of the Guild is a “ Servant’s Heart”: supporting, generous giving, fruitful, good works, humility and service. Ruth presented each of her new officers with a cross, made of white plaster enhanced with gold paint with a heart in the center. These were created by the citizens of Brookwood.
Sharon Saunders provided us with an update of the progress and vision of HBU. It was a very special occasion for all who attended. It was a most heart filled day.
