Club Chatter

(Continued)

A large assortment of delicious cookies from the cookie exchange was enjoyed by all for refreshments with a nice variety of cookies to take home and share with our families.

Our next meeting will be at the home of Diann Reisman at 7 p.m. April 16, when the lesson will be “Wrap it Up.”

The Fifty Extension Homemakers

The Fifty Extension Homemakers, armed with needles and thread, met at 11 a.m. March 19, at the home of Isabelle Royse.

Sixty puppy pillows were stuffed and closed and made ready for children at Riley Hospital. Several more will be completed at our individual homes. At noon, we enjoyed a lunch of beef stew, white bean chicken chili, rolls, cheese and crackers, strawberry trifle and raspberry trifle, nuts, and cookies which Isabelle prepared for us.

At 1 p.m., Isabelle called the meeting to order followed by the Pledge of Allegiance and the Homemakers’ Creed. Isabelle gave devotions from a Woman’s Day magazine article titled “A Mixed Tape from the Angels” by Barbara Lynch.

Ruth Smith read the thought of the month, and Viola Minning led the song of the month. Bertha Head called the roll, answered by “What food or drink do you associate with Ireland?” There were 10 members present and three guests: Jewel Chambers, Tava Meisberger, and Shelby Forkert. Bertha read the secretary’s report from the February meeting, then gave the treasurer’s report.

For cultural arts, Isabelle showed Barbie and Ken doll clothes she made for her granddaughter’s birthday. She reported on the Madison District spring meeting held in Brown County. Decatur County won the gallon decorated jar for Coins for Cancer contest, done by Mary Preble, and this will be taken to Home and Family Conference in June. We were reminded of the April 7 International Night where we can bring something for cultural arts and/or a handmade purse. We were reminded to save pop tabs for Riley.
