The women of Bethlehem Lutheran Church and guests will hear a presentation by Joyce Davidson on the history of aprons at the group’s annual spring luncheon today.

The luncheon begins at noon and will be held in the fellowship hall at the church. The men of the church will prepare a lunch of chicken salad, fruit, bread basket of croissants, cranberry bread and a dessert. The cost is $10 for adults and $5 for children age 12 and younger. Child care will be provided.

The women and children attending the luncheon are encouraged to wear aprons. Davidson says the use of aprons has been around for a long time with a variety of utilitarian and decorative uses. At the close of the presentation, guests will be encouraged to tell a story about their particular apron.

The luncheon is organized by the Study Circles of Bethlehem with each group assigned a task such as menu, program, decorations, etc. The mistress of ceremony will be Edna Schramm. The invited guests for this lunch are the women of other Lutheran churches in the DeKalb and Sycamore area. For more information, call 815-758-3203.
