The Crystal Family and Community Education Club recently held its October meeting at the Obion County Museum in Union City.
President Nadine Killion called the meeting to order by welcoming everyone in attendance.
Jane Fisher gave the devotional using a book entitled “All I Ever Really Needed to Know I Learned on the Farm” by Tim Holland. The story spoke of patience. She also read a poem about plowing and “Don’t Quit.”
Members answered the roll call by telling their favorite things about autumn.
Minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved. The treasury reports were given. Thank-you cards from the Obion County Museum and Joyce Taylor were read and passed around.
It was noted the “Arts Market” was to be held at the Westover School building located on Florida Avenue this past weekend. The club agreed to set up a booth at the event.
Members learned who the new officers are and what their duties for 2012 will be. Projects were discussed. It was mentioned that the club may visit the new library at the University of Tennessee at Martin. Diane Johnson read the goals list and some changes were made.
Lonna Kennedy informed the club that Union City Elementary School is still collecting Box Tops and Campbell’s soup labels. Box Tops should include their expiration dates. The bar codes are needed from the Campbell’s labels.
It was noted some of the members were to participate in the annual Folklore Jamboree in Milan.
The members discussed how to decorate the club’s Christmas tree at the Obion County Public Library this year and learned the club members have been invited to have lunch with Teresa Vinson at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union City on Dec. 12.
The 2012 State Conven-tion is being held in the Western Region this week. Members had been asked to bring handmade items to sell in the gift shop.
The meeting was ad-journed and Mrs. Killion gave the blessing before lunch.
Angels were made from light bulbs for the afternoon craft.
