"She's doing OK," Windland said. "She went back to the hospital but we heard good news today that she is recovering."
Windland said the benefit for a fellow law enforcement wife was the second event for the new group.
Danielle Parrish, also with the group, said they served more than 100 spaghetti dinners about midway through the noon to 6 p.m. event Saturday at South Parkersburg Baptist Church.
