Crystal Family and Community Education Club president Nadine Killion called the recent meeting to order, greeting all present. Joyce Taylor introduced a friend, Josephine Caudle, as a guest. June Bennett gave the devotional with a reading by Gertrude Schwartz titled, “It’s just not the economy that’s sagging.” “It was a funny ranting of what happens to us as we age and our body parts shift,” a spokesman said. The minutes of the last meeting were read and approved. Roll was taken with each member telling of a country they would like to visit and why. Volunteer hours were reported. The treasurer’s report was read and approved. A notice was read on the upcoming Obion County Fair Board elections. The club has three votes. Susan Holzner made a motion, seconded by Mrs. Taylor, to make a donation to the Lions Club Telethon. It was also agreed upon by all. Mrs. Killion thanked all who helped clean the Obion County Museum’s public rooms. The club put its Christmas tree up at the Obion County Museum recently. There will be an open house at the museum to view the trees and the FCE clubs have been asked to act as hostesses and bring cookies and punch for refreshments. This will be from 2-4 on Sunday afternoon. For the December outing, the members have decided to go to “Another Thyme” for lunch. In lieu of exchanging gifts, the group will make a donation to Chimes for Charity. The annual Cookie Exchange will be held on Dec. 1 at the Obion County Public Library, beginning at 10 a.m. Members are asked to bring three dozen cookies for trading and some for sampling, as well as a decorative cup to trade. Francis Parmenter will purchase fruit and deliver it to the exceptional children at Lake Road and Hillcrest schools. The group played a game of Hokey Pokey led by Rochelle McClain. As Obion County University of Tennessee Extension agent Benita Giffin was unable to attend the meeting, the group discussed how to handle drugs safely in their homes. Medications need to be put up and out of the reach of children. Nita Simpson acted as hostess and gave a blessing before lunch. School supplies were collected. Members also brought items for the Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes. The group will send boxes for teenagers, one for a girl and one for a boy. Published in The Messenger 11.14.08
