New Salem FCE Club – 1.24.11

New Salem FCE Club – 1.24.11

Posted: Wednesday, January 25, 2012 8:00 pm

New Salem FCE began the year with the first club meeting Jan. 6 at the home of Bettie and Deanna Higgs.  
They were delighted to have all 17 members and welcomed new member Betty High and agent Beverly Shelby.
Higgs opened the meeting with the thought for the day, “Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work so most people don’t recognize them,” a quote by Ann Landers.  
Devotion leader Lillian Stoker used a true story of how Winston Churchill gave help to a youth who later invented penicillin and used scripture reference Amos 5: 14-15 and led in prayer.
Marjorie Simmons led in singing “Auld Lang Syne” and “Beautiful Garden of Prayer.” They recognized the January anniversary of Mary Elizabeth and Denton Bell by singing “Happy Anniversary to You.”
All repeated the FCE Creed.  Higgs read thank you notes from Crystal Browning for the New Salem Club scholarships awarded to her as a student at UTM and the donation of food made to We Care Ministries in November.  
As secretary Ruby Rogers called the roll, each one shared her plan or resolution for the new year.  
Bettie Higgs gave a report and led a discussion of the enjoyable time had at the Christmas luncheon Dec. 2 at the Station House Restaurant in Palmersville.  
In further business, the group discussed the leadership action meeting in Jackson Jan. 5 and a council meeting in Dresden Jan. 12.
New Salem will be responsible for song leaders, pianist and devotionals.  
Shelby brought an interesting activity for the program, a spokesperson said.
Each one used description cards to categorize or likes and dislikes which helped to diagnose our personalities.
The adjournment thought came from Galatians 1:9.
The hostesses entertained with recreating and prayer and delicious refreshments at the table decorated in the holiday motif.
There is a meeting planned Feb. 3 at 1:30 p.m., which will be hosted by Kathy Simmons.
