Mrs. Joyner hosts Symposium Club
The Symposium Club met recently in the home of Lou Joyner, with Rosalee Thompson serving as her co-hostess. They served fresh apple cake with nuts, coffee and soft drinks.
The meeting was called to order by the president, Lelia Warner. The October minutes were read and approved. The treasurer gave the club’s balance and an account of the past month’s expenditures and income.
Several items of business were discussed. Members voted to give two baskets to Chimes for Charity in memory of three members: Pam Nailling, Kaye Logan and Ann Hibbler. It was decided the Christmas party will be at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 13 at Boyettes Dining Room at Reelfoot Lake.
Following the business part of the meeting, Diane Riley gave an interesting program on her recent trip to Ireland with her family. She told of the towns and places they visited. The tour started at Limerick, Ireland, and while there they visited King John’s Castle. Next they went to Shannon, where they visited the Bunratty Folk Park. The rest of the tour included the Cliffs of Moher at Killarney. They crossed the wide River Shannon Estuary on a short ferry ride to Tarbert and then through Listowel and Castle Island to Killarney. While at Killarney, they went to the grounds of the national park and to the Muckross House and Gardens. They then saw the Blarney Castle ruins, the Blarney Stone, the Cobh Heritage Center and the Waterford Crystal factory. The last stop was in Dublin, where they visited Trinity College’s old library to see the early illuminated manuscripts of the Book of Kells. She said the scenery throughout Ireland was gorgeous.
The meeting was closed by Mrs. Warner.
