Crystal FCE Club meets

Posted: Thursday, October 16, 2008 9:06 pm

The Crystal Family and Community Education Club met recently, with president Nadine Killion greeting the 13 members and noting those unable to attend. Jane Fisher gave the devotional, reading two poems. The first was titled “Sunshine and Rain” by Clay Harrison and the second “A Time for Ups and Downs” by Hope Oberhelmin. They both reminded members of the good and bad times that come into their lives. Roll was taken, with each member telling her favorite Halloween candy. Candy corn seemed to be the most popular. The minutes were read and approved, as were the treasury reports. Items will be collected in November for the Operation Christmas Child. Folklore Jamboree will be held in Milan Saturday. Several members will be demonstrating crafts from the past. The County Council meeting was to be held Monday and the ladies were asked to wear pink in honor of breast cancer awareness. They were also asked to bring candy to offer as a “Trick or Treat.” Items which won at the district level in Dress Review or Cultural Arts were to be given to those who will be attending the state convention for further judging. There will be a clean up day of the public rooms of the Obion County Museum on Monday starting at 9 a.m. Anyone interested in helping in this endeavor is asked bring their own cleaning materials. The November meeting is being moved up one week to Nov. 5, as some members will be attending the state convention the following week. Members are asked to have a suggestion for a meeting place for the December outing. Anyone with items for the former Westover School yard sale is asked to contact Judy Taylor for a drop-off location. It was decided the group would tour the Coke display Raymond Phillips has at his home in January. The annual cookie exchange will be held on Dec. 1 at the Obion County Public Library at 10 a.m. Members are asked to bring three dozen cookies for trading and extras to sample along with the recipe and a holiday cup to trade. Rochelle McClain led members in doing the hokey pokey for a bit of exercise. Next month the club will make decorations for the tree it will sponsor at the Obion County Museum’s Parade of Trees. Susan Holzner gave a report on “Taking Control of Your Credit.” After lunch served by Mrs. Fisher, who acted as hostess, the members learned from wood carver James Scott some basic wood carving using sweet potatoes. He showed off his skills during wood carving demonstrations during the week of the Obion County Fair. Canned goods for Reelfoot Rural Ministries were collected. Items to bring for the next meeting will be school supplies to help with the needs of the Obion County and Union City schools. Nita Simpson will act as hostess and June Bennett will give the devotional. Published in The Messenger 10.16.08
