Mason Hall FCE meets
Posted: Wednesday, September 22, 2010 8:01 pm
The Mason Hall Family and Community Education Club met recently, with Vernelle Sturdivant and Bennie Patterson as hostesses.
The meeting hall was decorated with a fall theme.
President Frances Allen welcomed everyone and gave the thought for the day: “We get to make a living; we give to make a life,” by Winston Churchill.
There were 15 women, six men members and three visitors in attendance.
Betty Luton’s devotional text was from Exodus 23:12. In response to the question, “What does it take?,” she said God doesn’t want work to be so important to us. According to the Old Testament, rest is still important. “What does it take to make you stop and pay attention to God?” she asked. She also read, “Enjoying God.”
The sick were remembered, including Andrew Hurt, who is facing another procedure.
Ms. Luton then closed in prayer.
Roll call was answered with members giving their favorite recipe.
Mary Lois Owens from the Crystal FCE Club and and Obion County University of Tennessee Extension agent Benita Giffin talked about all the work to be done on Christmas Express. It will be Oct. 23 from 1-4:30 p.m. The cost will be $10 and tickets can be purchased from the Extension office or from a club member.
Ms. Allen asked members to tell the entries and ribbons won at the Obion County Fair. There were several winners in the club and member Charlotte Pierce won the Best Dressed Closet award.
Bennie Patterson asked for volunteers to bake cakes for Fall Fest in Kenton on Oct. 9.
Buttons and material are needed for 4-H.
Bonnie Hurt was offered thanks for the pretty fall wreath she provided. Thanks was also extended to former principal Billy Joe Roney and teacher Donald Gray for Mason Hall memorabilia they donated.
The next meeting will be Oct. 7.
