Pine Ridge Extension Homemakers November Meeting

Carol White gave a lesson on “Why We Eat What We Eat” when Pine Ridge Extension Homemakers Club met Nov. 24 at Norma Pollert’s home.

She said this is determined by tradition, comfort, social and habit factors and gave examples of each.

President Sandi Hall presided, and Aryss Beebe led in singing “Home for the Holidays.”

Members responded to roll call by telling how many people they expected to join for Thanksgiving dinner.

Hall reported the fundraiser bake sale took in more than $600.

Carol Wait and Hall agreed to be responsible for the club’s Meals on Wheels delivery.

Pollert gave the citizenship lesson on Veterans Day. She said it was formerly called Armistice Day and noted the ending of World War I at 11 a.m. Nov. 11, 1918. All veterans are now honored Nov. 11 each year.

Pollert gave devotions on “Look and Live” and served a dessert course to 11 members.

The next meeting will be a Christmas luncheon at 1:30 p.m. Dec. 15 at The Chocolate Spoon. Members are to take cards for their secret pals and a donation for Provisions. New secret pals will be drawn for 2016.
