Third Review Club meets
Posted: Monday, September 27, 2010 8:01 pm
The Third Review Club met recently in the home of Peggy Drerup.
The meeting was called to order by president Hazel Williams. Mrs. Drerup, chaplain, gave the quote for the day: “Love God and Do as You Please,” quoted by Martin Luther. She added if you love God, you will do things to please Him.
Secretary Mary Ellen Stevens was absent, so minutes of the last meeting were not read. Treasurer Ruth Gorman gave the treasurer’s report and it was accepted. Sunshine chairman Joyce Stephens reported on cards which had been sent to various people.
There was no old business and new business was reported as follows: Mary Lois Owens distributed notices about Christmas Express, an event being hosted by the Obion County Family and Community Education clubs Oct. 23 from 1 to 4:30 p.m. in the Junior Exhibits Building at the Obion County Fairgrounds. Tickets are on sale at the Obion County University of Tennessee Extension Service office in Union City.
The October meeting will be in the home of Lenora Stephenson, who will also be the program chairman. Refreshments will be provided by Mrs. Williams.
Refreshments of brownie cake with whipped cream and coffee were served to 15 members and guest speaker Clay Woods.
After the meeting was adjourned, Woods gave a very informative and interesting program about the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northwest Tennessee in Union City. He gave statistics of how Boys & Girls Clubs enhance the lives of children who sometimes do not have the means or proper education on how to be a productive person later in life. The children come to the center after school and are helped with homework and then there is game time and a small food treat. At a later time, the older children come to the club to be tutored. He distributed brochures which include stories of people whose lives have been changed by being a part of Boys & Girls Clubs of America. He also pointed out a book which was written by Boys & Girls Club alumni Jeanette Walls titled, “The Glass Castle,” which gives a good example of children who grew up in dysfunctional homes and went on to be very successful adults.
Collection of funds for the club is needed on an ongoing basis and are very much appreciated, it was noted.
