Catholic Daughters of Americas Court Regina Mundi #1737 from St. Benedict Parish, Decorah, recently held its annual Salad Luncheon on Thursday, April 10. The luncheon featured various vegetable, fruit, seafood, meat and pasta salads made by court members. In conjunction with this year’s luncheon, the court also held its first annual quilt raffle. Proceeds from the raffle go toward the court’s scholarship fund for a high school senior girl from St. Benedict Parish.
The quilt committee has been very busy this winter, making and stitching many quilts. The court donates quilts for our parish Banquet of Blessings, Mardi Gras, and our local court’s local high school scholarship fund. The court also donates quilts for families that have a fire or other devastating events, such as life threatening illness of a family member.
