The Clinton Extension Homemakers met Feb. 3 at the Beach Tiki Bar for their 79th anniversary celebration with 11 members and one guest, Bonita Myers.
To open the meeting, president Connie Fruchtnicht had devotions, “Ten Free Gifts for the New Year.” The gift to listen, a gift of signs of affection, a note, the gift of laughter, a compliment, a favor, the gift of leaving alone, a cheerful disposition, gift of a game and gift of prayer.
Happy Birthday was sung for Regina Osborn and Happy Anniversary was sung for Dorothy Mahan. A Valentine card was signed for Maxine Hayers. Members said they enjoyed the Christmas party held at the Big Four Cafe in Batesville.
It was announced that the sewing project for RIley Hospital has been postponed until better weather. A gallon jar was donated to be decorated for the collection of funds for the cancer research. A total of $87 has already been collected.
The ENVON conference in July will be held in Indianapolis and members are urged to pan to attend. Connie had prayer before a delicious meal of their choice. A game to guess how many total years of membership for our club members was won by Betty Chadwell, a gift of the Greensburgopoly game. Lucky napkin winner was Regina Osborn. By luck of the draw, Connie won a Greensburgopoly game as well. All members received an Indiana festival guide booklet.
Members had their choice of either Key Lime Pie or Peanut Butter Pie with Chocolate chips made by Connie. Connie thanked Marilyn Davis for arranging the celebration, Betty and Regina for calling everyone since it was a change of date.
The next meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. March 4 at the home of Ann Lindsay.
