Club Chatter

50 Extension Homemakers

Eleven Fifty Extension Homemakers met at 11 a.m. June 18 at the Sherman House Restaurant in Batesville for our annual outing.

During nice individual lunches, Kevin Shook gave us a history of the restaurant. 1865 is the first official record of the Sherman House opening for business. It was named for William Tecumseh Sherman who contributed to the Civil War efforts. One hundred eleven Ripley County men marched to Atlanta with him. Throughout the ensuing years, additional surrounding buildings were added to the complex. Today it encompasses a half-city block with three floors.

Juanita Israel offered prayer for the meal, and while waiting for our orders, Isabelle held a short business meeting. She stated that Janet Bedel’s club is running the pie-eating contest at the Fair this year, and Janet requested our club’s assistance. Isabelle, Carol Ayres, and Helen Swango stated that they would help.

Our club is to watch the Farm and Home Center Thursday night, July 17. Carol and Juanita will watch from 4 to 6 p.m., and Isabelle, Tonia Schofield, and Helen will watch from 6 to 8 p.m. and on to closing.

Linda Gommel distributed new address/phone/etc. lists. Isabelle reminded us to keep records of our community service hours. We can count any help at the Fair, home extension projects, or any activity which helps the community (without pay).

Kevin returned and gave us a tour of the building. We viewed several hotel rooms on the second floor, each being beautifully decorated. We visited the main dining room which features “holes” in the wall showing the original bricks and some of the original beams and woodwork.

Following our tour there, we viewed an art display in the windows of the Community Church then visited the Romweber building which was restored with many booths of antiques and other crafts for sale.
