Pleasant Valley FCE meets

The Pleasant Valley Family and Community Education Club met recently at the Pleasant Valley United Methodist Church fellowship hall. The meeting was called to order by president Virginia Yarbrough. The Thought for the Day was, “Be like a bird, wake up and sing and be happy all day long.” The devotion was by Catharine Williams. She told of the parable about the marketplaces and how Jesus loved people. He had a special spot for children. She told about Erma Brombeck and how she said that if life was almost over, she would eat more ice cream and less beans. “So would you live life any different if you had a chance?” she asked. “Learn to love more like Jesus did. Take opportunities to say thank you and extend courtesies to each other.” Roll call was answered by each member stating her favorite song. Some answers included “Tennessee Waltz,” “Wind Beneath My Wings,” “In the Garden,” “How Great Thou Art,” “The Prodigal Son” and “Coming Up on the Right Side of the Mountain.” Upcoming events include the dress revue on June 12 at the Obion County Farm Bureau office. Benita Giffin, University of Tennessee Extension agent, gave the program on how to care for quilts. She said to wash your hands and wear gloves before handling them, keep quilts on a clean dry surface and store them rolled, not folded, in acid free tissue and boxes. If acid free boxes can’t be found, quilts may be stored in cotton sheets. The next meeting will be June 18. Published in The Messenger 6.2.08
