Third Review Club meets
Posted: Friday, October 17, 2008 9:30 pm
The Third Review Club met recently in the home of Mary Lois Owens. The meeting was called to order by president Mary Ellen Stevens. Chaplain Mary Dunavant opened the meeting with prayer and a poem about autumn.
Hazel Williams took roll call, which was answered with the name of the first doctor the members remembered seeing. She then read the minutes from the last meeting.
The club voted to enter a Christmas tree in the museum’s Parade of Trees this year. Peggy Drerup was elected to replace Lelia Lowry as chairman of the sunshine committee because of Mrs. Lowry’s health.
An informative program was presented by Linda St. Clair, whose subject was medical history records. She suggested that everyone keep a notebook of their medical history, such as the reason for their visit to the doctor, any chronic medical conditions that they are aware of, their current medications and any allergies they have. They should also keep a surgical history, their family medical history (things that appear from generation to generation), get a record of all lab reports from their doctor or the person performing the procedure and also keep a record of exercise programs and work or disability issues and any support systems that are in place so caretakers are aware of these things.
The hostess served a delicious refreshment of caramel pumpkin tarts, miniature stuffed tomatoes and an assortment of beverages to 16 members.
