Song leader Pat Calhoun led in singing “The Old Rugged Cross.”
At roll call, we answered, “How did your parents choose your name?”
We reviewed our club goals for 2008 and made some changes that will be beneficial.
Our club Sew Day to make baby jackets, gowns and blankets was set for Tuesday, Feb. 19, at the Farm Bureau building in Dresden. We planned our bake sales for Thursday, March 20, and Friday, May 9, at the courthouse.
For the program, club vice president Pam Jones gave a book report about “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff With Your Family,” by Richard Carlson. The book gave many helpful suggestions about how to live a less stressful life.
Susan Cox, Glenda Jackson, Brenda Winstead and Lexie Bell brought items for show and tell. Door prizes were furnished by Jerry Seamans.
President Jerry Seamans adjourned the meeting with a closing thought: “No day is so bad it can’t be fixed with a nap.” – Carrie Snow
