The Stockdale Blue Bonnet Club met Aug. 11 in the home of Sharon West. The program was presented by Sue McLelland and revolved around a poem titled “The Legend of the Sand Dollar.”

Mrs. McLelland handed out a bag that contained little gift-wrapped items. Each member chose an item and when they were all handed out, each person unwrapped her sand dollar. Mrs. McLelland then read the poem and pointed out each aspect of the sand dollar by using a larger version to demonstrate.

The poem explains how the birth and death of Jesus is found in this lowly shell. If examined closely, there are four nail holes and the fifth made by a Roman spear. On one side is the Easter lily and its center the star that led the shepherds. The Christmas Poinsettia is etched on the other side to remind us of His birthday (our Christmastide). If the sand dollar is broken open, five white doves will be released to spread good will and peace. This simple symbol was left by Christ to help us spread His gospel through all eternity.

Members present for the meeting include Bernice Persons, Molly Rowell, Edith Akin, Charlin Akin, Sue McLelland, Sharon West, Kay Deagen, Judy Childress, Billie Jo Wolff, Mildred Kallies, and Barbara Wiatrek.
