Mason Hall FCE meets

Posted: Tuesday, April 19, 2011 8:01 pm

Members of Mason Hall Family and Community Education Club recently gathered for their April meeting. There were 14 women and five men members, two visitors and Obion County University of Tennessee Extension agent Benita Giffin in attendance.
Charlotte Pierce and Pat Hurt served as hostesses, with the community center decorated for Easter.
President Frances Allen welcomed everyone and gave the thought for the day: “Plan ahead. Remember it wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.”
Roll call was answered with members naming their favorite season and why it is their favorite?
The secretary’s report was read, which included the number of hours worked and people reached. The treasury report was given.
Betty Luton’s devotion was about Easter. She asked members to think about this special time and what it means. She read the Easter story from Luke 24:1-9. She also read a story about a little country church and memories of a childhood Easter. Members remembered their shut-in friends and Mrs. Luton closed the devotional with prayer.
Communications were read from Obion County Reading Railroad, Reelfoot Rural Ministry, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, Arlington, Louise Turner and the family of Shirley McKeel.
Deadlines were told for CVU’s and creative writing.
The cultural arts competition was held recently. There were a total of 84 entries. From the Mason Hall FCE Club, there were seven blue ribbons, two red ribbons and one third-place winner.
Mrs. Giffin was in charge of the program, which was titled “Your Hair and You.” She gave five tips: take vitamins; give yourself a five minute scalp massage each day; if you have long hair, wear it up more or at least 50 percent of the time; don’t neglect your hair,  get a trim about every five weeks; and find tricks that work for you. Some of the tricks named included sleeping on a satin pillow case, switching from a plastic comb to a wooden or cellulose acetate comb, using a low pH shampoo and taking flax seed.
Club members are making plans and looking forward to hosting their third Mason Hall School Reunion. Past students of Mason Hall School or former residents of the Mason Hall area are welcome. It will be held July 2 at 1 p.m. at the Mason Hall Community Center. Those attending are encouraged to bring their own lawn chair. Each class will be recognized and the number attending will be reported.
