The Sunshine Club of St. Paul's Lutheran Church was organized in 1916 as the "Busy Martha Club" under Pastor Theo Fehlou. Their objective was to be modern day "Marthas" and care for the altar, have flowers for beauty each Sunday and to provide a meal for any bereaved family in the church. Prior to 1936, the name was changed to the Sunshine Club.
Through the years there have been many special projects initiated and funded by the Sunshine Club, such as:
Renovation and furnishing of the Lutheran Haus
Refurnishing the Church Parlor
Needlepointing the altar kneelers and pillows
Replacing the carpet with slate around the altar
Establishing and maintaing the gallery of Confirmation pictures
Maintaining the gallery of pictures of the Pastors in the Church Parlor
Other on-going projects include:
Gift of "Little Visits for Toddlers" for Baptisms
Sale of St. Paul's note cards
Needlepoint kneelers maintenance
Providing a meal for bereaved Sunshine Club member families
Hosting various receptions for St. Paul's Church
Projects for civic, community, nonprofit organizatins and needy families, such as gift bags for children at Pilot Light Home.
Membership in the Sunshine Club is open to all ladies of our congregation. We meet the fourth Tuesday of each month. Our members share being hostesses. Dues are $25.00 per year.
