50 Extension Homemakers
The 50 Extension Homemakers met at 1 p.m. Feb. 19 at Zion United Methodist Church.
Isabelle Royse opened the meeting with Pledge of Allegiance followed by the Homemakers’ Creed. Ruth Smith, hostess, gave devotions titled “Planted with Love” from Woman of God daily devotions by Gail Marsh. Carol Ayres read the thought of the month, and Bertha Head and Mary Marsh lead the song of the month, “Laugh Provoker.”
Nine members answered roll call by stating “Who was President when you were born?” Bertha read Juanita Israel’s January secretary’s report in her absence and then gave her treasurer’s report.
For cultural arts, Ruth showed a framed copy of Zion Church’s deed dated April 7, 1866, and an old Sunday school secretary’s book beginning March 6, 1904. She also pointed out the cemetery behind the church with special note to ancestors of several of our members.
There were no birthdays this month. We discussed the fact that fiberfill for puppy pillows has almost tripled in price which may cause us to rethink the project. It was related that the pie eating contest at the Fair needs a new chairman and volunteers. We were reminded that our $10 club dues are due by May 1. District Day is March 13 in Brown County with a $10 lunch fee. Isabelle found some future lessons: “Wrap It Up,” “Conservation Wise,” and “Sleep Disorders.” Our next meeting will be at Isabelle’s at 11 a.m. March 19.
For Health and Safety, Isabelle read an article titled “Confessions of a Flu Virus.” Bertha led the Club Prayer. Isabelle gave a lesson, “Smilin’ Feet.” Ruth served Cherry Dump Cake and other items for refreshments. Carol and Bertha received the door prizes.
