The Mason Hall Family and Community Education Club met recently and was called to order by president Frances Allen. There were 20 women and eight men members present, as well as two visitors, Tiffany and Olivia Gill. Roll call was answered by members naming their last gift. Minutes were read and the treasurer’s report was given and approved. Communications were read from the Demova McKeel family and the Clifton Yarbrough family for the club’s social services. Visitations and volunteer hours were reported. The United Way bake sale fundraiser was a success with plenty of cakes, pies, cookies and candy sold. The report on cultural arts named several members who won blue and red ribbons. Eight members from the club attended the Obion County FCE Cookie Exchange, which was held at the Obion County Public Library earlier this month. At lunch time, the group was joined by 18 business leaders and elected officials. This is their way of showing appreciation to those who serve the members all year long. In Betty Luton’s devotional Christmas program, she talked about people coming back home and read the Christmas story from the Bible. Irene Galloway, Nancy Tankersley and Sarah Allen read stories of Christmas. Wanda Donnell played Santa and handed out the gifts. Mary Davis and Jeanette Proctor had sewn pretty utility type aprons in different colors of material and trimmed in many colors of rick rack and bias tape. Ms. Davis handed them out as gifts. Then the members had three chances to choose another apron which they preferred. Nettie B. Moore was absent. Members wished for her a speedy recovery from surgery.
