This week’s “Person of the Week” is Mrs. Janie Zimmer.
She is an member of the United Methodist Church in Vandalia.
“I love my church. Mary Orr and I are in charge of funeral dinners. I take care of the flowers and the sanctuary, to make sure it is ready for service. I attend meetings, and just do whatever needs to be done,” Zimmer said.
Zimmer is also a member of a new sewing group in the church.
This ministry makes prayer quilts for people who are sick or in need of prayer.
Within the community, Zimmer plays an active role in the La Femme Arts club and is also a member of the Chapter CE P.E.O.
