Wednesday, August 20, 2014 - Updated: 10:08 PM

FORT PLAIN -- Members of Catholic Daughters’ Court Catherine Esther #1264 met on Monday, August 4 at Wiles Park in Fort Plain. Following a covered dish supper, the regular business meeting was held with Regent Marlene Nalli presiding. 

Nalli said that the court had received two applications for the Court Scholarship before the June 1 deadline, and that the scholarship committee, consisting of Vice Regent Kathy Walsh and Education co-chairmen Doreen Shariff and Debra DiVisconti, made a final judgment. 

Aristotle Boslet, son of Michael and Diane Boslet of Palatine Bridge, was chosen to receive the award. Nalli presented it to him at the 11 a.m. liturgy on Sunday, June 29. 

Regent Nalli thanked members for bringing donations for the collection of school supplies. She indicated that Cathy Smith would be taking the collection to the OESJ Central School District in the near future.

Doris Dutcher reported that she and Nalli attended the Albany Diocese Past Regent’s Chapter meeting in May and agreed to host the Chapter’s Fall meeting. This meeting will be held on Saturday, Sept. 6 at Our Lady of Hope Church in Fort Plain.

A light lunch will be held after the meeting. Nalli indicated that the court’s past regents would be asked to help with the luncheon.

Nalli noted that members should remember to bring baby clothing and items to the Sept. meeting for the court’s Autumn Charitable Project. All collected items will be donated to the Community Maternity Services Agency in Montgomery County and distributed to area mothers. 

Suggested items include diapers (especially newborn size), wipes, bathing supplies, bottles, diaper bags, swaddling blankets, hoodie towels and newborn baby clothing. Also needed are gently used strollers and pack-n-plays. There will be a receptacle in the church vestibule for any parishioners wishing to contribute baby items. 

Members were reminded that the next meeting would be held on Monday, Sept. 8 in the OLH classrooms starting at 7 p.m. with light refreshments following the meeting.
