Posted: Friday, November 14, 2008 9:18 pm

The Mason Hall Family and Community Education Club met recently and was called to order by president Frances Allen. There were 18 women and five men members present. Roll call was answered by what country the members would like to visit. Obion County University of Tennessee Extension agent Benita Giffin gave a program on “Are You Managing Your Time?” She handed out pamphlets on health care and a health newsletter. Mrs. Giffin installed the club’s officers for 2009. They include president Frances Allen, vice president Nettie B. Moore, treasurer Vernelle Sturdivant, secretary Jeanette Proctor, devotional leader Betty Jo Luten and reporter Sarah Allen. Ms. Luten gave a timely devotion titled “Thanking God” and “When God Says Thank You.” Her scripture text was from Luke 21:2. Minutes were read and the treasurer’s report was given and approved. Reports on social services, visitation and charities were given. Some members had cultural arts entries at state convention. The club has installed new table tops and a new splash board behind the stove and has purchased a new refrigerator and a new microwave oven. Everyone is welcome to visit the Parade of Trees at the Obion County Museum on Sunday from 2-4 p.m. The theme is “A Natural Christmas,” and Mason Hall’s tree will be entitled, “Way Back When.” The club’s annual bake sale for United Way will be held at First State Bank in Kenton Nov. 22 at 9 a.m. Obion County Cookie Exchange will be held Dec. 1 at 10 a.m. at the Obion County Public Library. Club members are looking forward to celebrating Christmas at their next meeting on Dec. 4. New members are always welcome to join. Published in The Messenger 11.14.08
