Pleasant Valley FCE meets
The Pleasant Valley Family and Community Education Club met recently at the Pleasant Valley United Methodist Church fellowship hall.
Members answered roll call by answering the question, “What do you do to get rid of cabin fever?” Some answers included watching television, visiting with others, working puzzles and crocheting.
Catharine Williams presented a devotional on thanking people for their friendship. She said we run across a lot of people in our lives who do favors for us or perform a kind act. “Sometimes we remember to thank them, sometimes not. Try to remember to thank the person,” she said.
Tracey Batey, representing Discovery Park of America, presented the program. She offered interesting facts about the design of the building and how many people it will accommodate in the conference hall. She said there will be four levels, which will house various rooms filled with Obion County history. She added there will be a hands-on room for children, a military room, a glass elevator and an observation deck. A botanical garden and greenhouse at the facility will offer alternative use of utilities. The design comes from architect Douglas Cardinal of Canada. Mrs. Batey said he looks at the area and incorporates it into his design. Robert Kirkland is a collector who came up with the idea and some of the funding, it was noted. Overall it will be a great asset to Union City area, a club spokesman said.
The next meeting will be Feb. 20 at the church fellowship hall.
