Crystal FCE Club meets

Posted: Thursday, September 29, 2011 8:03 pm

The Crystal Family and Community Education Club held its September meeting at the Obion County Public Library with president Nadine Killion presiding. Rochelle McClain gave the devotional. She used a brown paper bag and gave members seeds to grow a “Garden For the Soul.” It was a very good and spiritual lesson on how members are to live. Obion County University of Tennessee Extension Service agent Benita Giffin gave a program about exercise and how it is important to not only warm up before exercise but to cool down afterward. She said people do not need to lock their joints or hold their breath while exercising. She also told about something she read in “Consumer Reports,” which stated people need to be aware of credit cards that display the “blink” logo on the back. These cards have a microchip inserted in them for ease of use, but can also be stolen by people on the street using a small reader. It is yet another form of identity theft but can be protected by using an aluminum wallet or even folding aluminum foil in half to make a protective cover for the card. There was no secretary report as the group enjoyed its summer outing and had no meeting. The treasury reports were given. Roll was taken with members telling of their favorite memory of this year’s Obion County Fair. Most said seeing friends they hadn’t seen in awhile. It was noted, Heritage Skills Day was to be held in Jackson on Sept. 15 and the Obion County Museum had a fun day in its parking lot on Sept. 24. There were concession stands and rides for the children. Members were asked for help this day. A thank-you note was read from the museum for a recent donation. Under old business, due to illness, the craft classes scheduled for the public will not be held in the fall, but will be set for a day next spring. June Bennett told of a benefit chili and cornbread dinner with an auction to be held at Hornbeak City Hall Oct. 15. Meals are $5. Milan Heritage Day will also be on Oct. 15, with several members going to demonstrate their work. Members were informed Westover School is hoping to be ready to hold its annual art day in November at the facility. Items were collected to be sent to soldiers. The next meeting will be held Oct. 11. Before lunch, Mrs. Bennett offered a blessing. Refreshments were served by Mrs. McClain and Morris McKinnis. Angels made from old light bulbs were then created. Published in The Messenger 9.29.11
