Friends and Neighbors Home Extension Club met Aug. 24 at Cornerstone Community Church with nine members present.
Co-hostess Charlotte Lovegrove offered a prayer prior to serving ham salad sandwiches, assorted chips and cold drinks followed by root beer floats. She was assisted by Debbie Sherbert.
The Pledge of Allegiance and the club creed were led by president Ruby Niccum.
Summer time is such a special time, said Ruth Bateman, what with all the butterflies and flowers everywhere. Our creator is so creative. There is a time to keep pushing yourself and a time to rest. Even God rested on the seventh day and was refreshed.
Roll call was taken and the minutes presented by the secretary. Niccum circulated several thank you cards from the 4-H members our club supported. She also reported on the council meeting held at the Brownstown Park on Aug. 16.
Olga Otte said they would now accept pill bottles with labels, but names marked out. Niccum said the annual bake sale at Immanuel will be Nov. 6 and she is looking for volunteers. Our club is sponsoring the Fall Fling to be held at 6 p.m. Nov. 11 at Cornerstone Community Church.
Rhonda Kidwell gave a lesson on “First Things First, How to Prioritize.” She stated that we should do something different and make new pathways. She points out that there is a difference between priority and a goal. If you don’t know where you are going, you won’t like where you end up.
She also stated that our personalities affect our priorities. She passed out an activity sheet in which the group had to rank 15 items in terms of their importance to our survival.
Our next meeting will be Sept. 27 at Cornerstone Church with Bateman and Jan Caplinger as co-hosts.
