Crystal Family and Community Education Club met recently at the Obion County Public Library.
President Nadine Killion opened the meeting with a welcome to all who were present. The devotional was given by Susan Holzner. It came from “Devotional for Women Blog,” entitled “When God Says No” by Janet Morris Grimes. She closed with a prayer.
Roll was taken, with each member telling of a favorite Easter. Volunteer hours were told and minutes from the last meeting were read and one correction was made. The treasury report was also given.
Members were reminded of the corn husk doll workshop that will be held on May 13 at 9:30 a.m. and taught by Mary Lois Owens. It was noted the located has been changed to the Obion County Farm Bureau building in Union City. It was decided to cancel the plant exchange for this year.
Two thank-you notes were read — one from Obion County University of Tennessee Extension agent Benita Giffin and the other from Union City Schools for school supplies they received.
From the recent county council meeting, it was told that two officers will be needed to serve for the next two years — 2011-12.
A report was given on the recent basket workshop. Dress review will be held June 17 at the Farm Bureau and the extra “county only” category will be any sort of travel bag — make up, sewing, money, jewelry, etc.
Ridgemont Spring Heritage Days was held Friday and Saturday at the Obion County Fairgrounds. The clubs held a bake sale in the Women’s Building. Work assignments for those days were told and members offered their help.
The Obion County Fair colors this year will be red, white and blue. Judging for the Women’s Building will be Aug. 9.
There will be a needle tatting workshop June 24 at the Farm Bureau from 9:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. This will be taught by Jane Fisher, assisted by Mrs. Holzner.
Mrs. Killion will act as hostess for the June meeting. The craft for May will be a painted gift bag.
News of the upcoming Christmas Express was reported on. It will be Oct. 23 in the Junior Building at the Obion County Fairgrounds.
Mrs. Fisher gave Mrs. Giffin’s program in her absence. She gave handouts and touched on several uses for baking soda. She also distributed copies of Top Health News and Healthy Tennessean.
The meeting adjourned and guest Lilly Holzner gave the blessing before lunch. Mrs. Holzner acted as hostess.
After lunch and fellowship, members gathered in the teacher resource room in the library to make greeting cards.
The next meeting will be held on May 12 at 10:30 a.m. at the Obion County Museum, with June Bennett as hostess. Items to bring will be personal hygiene items for the area nursing homes. Anyone interested in joining the group is welcome.
