Posted: Thursday, March 10, 2011 8:01 pm
The Mason Hall Family and Community Education Club met recently with Nettie B. Moore as hostess.
The center was decorated in spring flowers. There were 17 women members, five men members and three visitors present.
President Frances Allen welcomed everyone and read the thought for the day: “May your troubles be less, your blessings be more and nothing but happiness come through your door.”
Betty Luton’s devotional was taken from The Upper Room. From Luke 6:36, members learned what giving really means; from Matt. 22:39, they studied “What kind of neighbor am I?”; from Luke 3:11, they heard “God calls us to be generous;” and from Col. 3:12, they were told “We don’t have to be far from home to serve.”
There was a long list of shut-ins remembered, with the list including the nursing homes where they reside. Mrs. Luton closed with prayer.
Members answered the roll call by answering the question “What is the luckiest thing that has happened to you?”
Minutes were read and approved and the treasurer’s report was given.
The Achievement Day luncheon was discussed.
Cultural arts entries are to be made on April 4 at the Obion County Museum in Union City. Registration is 9-10 a.m. Lunch will be with county council members and judges. The county council will meet at 1 p.m.
It was learned that repair work has been completed on the Mason Hall Community Center.
The club discussed upcoming projects for 201l. They have replenished their supply of vanilla, steak and paring knives and choppers. These items are for sale. Anyone interested in purchasing an item may contact a club member.
Mrs. Moore was in charge of the program, which included information from the University of Tennessee Center for Community Health Literacy publication entitled “The Healthy Tennessean.” The handout was titled “Cancer Prevention.” The risk factors were named and the percentage of cancer deaths each one caused was listed. They learned the “10 Commandments for Cancer Prevention,” including “Don’t wait for a ‘miracle cure’;” “Do what you can now to reduce your risk of future cancer” and “Remember, an ounce of cancer prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
For recreation time, Vernelle Sturdivant closed with some “blonde” jokes.
