Posted: Friday, August 6, 2010 8:02 pm
Mason Hall Family and Community Education Club members met recently at Boyette’s Dining Room at Reelfoot Lake for their annual outing. Nine members were present.
Frances Allen presided and read the thought for the day, “I have learned that everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it.” — Anonymous
After the repeating of the club creed and Pledge of Allegiance, Betty Jo Luten presented the devotion. The biblical reference was I Peter 4:10 and the reading was titled “A Steward of Grace.” Good stewards look for opportunities to pass what they have received from the Lord along to others, she said.
Roll call was answered by each member telling her favorite fair food. The minutes and treasurer’s report were read and approved.
A thank-you note from Janette Sanford was received.
Shut-ins were mentioned.
Mrs. Allen reported on the July county council meeting, with the fair and Christmas Express being covered extensively. She also reported on the mini-conference where the theme was “One Hundred Years of Hands.” Alpha Ruth Worrell, a former resident of the Mason Hall area, presented information on each era. Winners in various categories were announced.
The members agreed to buy an ad for Christmas Express. They also agreed the club’s contribution to the Mason Hall Area Neighborhood Watch would be to furnish the meeting place.
Members reported 19 cards sent, 41 calls and 12 visits made, five deliveries of food, 115 volunteer hours worked and 72 hours spent reading books, magazines and papers during the previous month.
The next meeting will be Sept. 2. Visitors and new members are welcome.
