Extension Homemakers

Greensburg — The 50 Extension Homemakers met at 11:30 a.m. Aug. 15, at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church for a pitch-in lunch.

Helen Swango was hostess. Vicar Chris Beck gave devotions related to the feast day of Mary. He then said grace before the delicious meal.

Isabelle Royse called the meeting to order at 1 p.m. Everyone repeated the Creed and Pledge of Allegiance. The Thought of the Month was read by Tonia Schofield. Viola Minning led the Song of the Month, ÒIÕm Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover.Ó

Roll call was answered by 11 members stating a State Fair memory. Mary Alice Smith said her first date with Frank was at the State Fair Sept. 3, 1950. Janet Cook was our guest.

Bertha Head read the minutes of the last meeting and then gave the treasurerÕs report. We sang ÒHappy BirthdayÓ to Bertha and Mary Marsh.

For Cultural Arts, Helen showed a beautiful double wedding ring quilt that she believes was made by her grandma.

For business, Isabelle related that the Decatur County Historical Society will have a display about IEHA celebrating 100 years. If anyone has anything for this, we need to turn it in by Sept. 13 to the Extension Office. A form from the Extension Office with membersÕ information was passed around for any necessary updating.

Isabelle has raffle tickets to sell for the 100th Anniversary king size Bow Tie Quilt to be held in June.

Isabelle reported on the council meeting. Monies made from the fair pie eating contest and food auction were donated to Hospice of Decatur and Shelby Counties and to New Directions, $500 each. An additional $300 was given to New Directions. 504 puppy pillows were completed at the fair. Madison District won $150 for having the most new members in one yearÕs time.

We are asked to put our loose change in a pill bottle and bring it to the January meeting to be used for cancer research. Each club was asked to make a scrapbook page each year to be used to build a county book. Tonia volunteered to do this.

Isabelle gave the health and safety lesson titled ÒNourish Your Bones.Ó New lesson packets were passed out. The lesson ÒStaying Healthy in the Summer SunÓ was handed out for personal reading. The meeting closed by everyone singing the Club Prayer. Isabelle presented the lesson on ÒPreserving Your Story.Ó
