Friends and Neighbors Club meets


President Ruby Niccum opened the April 27 meeting of the Friends and Neighbors Extension Homemakers Club with the Pledge of Allegiance and club creed.

Nine members responded to roll call by naming three things that make them think of spring.

Ruth Bateman, devotional leader, used an antique hymnal inscribed First Baptist Church, Seymour, which had Mary Greeman’s signature on the first page. Bateman read the words to “What a Friend We Have in Jesus” and related the life story of author, Joseph Scriven.

She also led the group in searching out descriptive words for F — faithful friends; R relationships; I — friends are interested; E — elated; N — friends help when needed; D — dear. The members sang the song.

The secretary’s report was read and approved. Niccum discussed new county president Peggy Carmichael’s address. It was voted to give $20 to the 4-H club.

Discussion followed concerning a candidate for the fair queen. Charlotte Lovegrove volunteered to check with her granddaughter.

Bateman stressed the importance of keeping baking soda near the stove to use in case of fire.

Helen Lutes inquired if members had an interest in availability of senior housing in the area.

Lovegrove gave a lesson and demonstration on crafts available through the local library. She had materials to make bird feeders using plastic Easter eggs. She also had patterns and materials for a heart and kusudama.

Hostess Vera Robbins served refreshments.

Rhonda Kidwell volunteered to serve as hostess for the next meeting Tuesday.
