Mason Hall FCE meets
Posted: Wednesday, March 7, 2012 8:00 pm
The Mason Hall Family and Community Education Club held its March meeting at the Mason Hall Community Center, with president Frances Allen presiding.
There were 15 women members, five men members and five visitors present. A special welcome was extended to new member Kathy Page.
Betty Jo Luton’s devotional was titled “spiritual activities” and her biblical reference was Lev. 19:2. “Some activities seem more spiritual than others and we tend to separate them that way. Moses grouped all activities together. God wants people to understand all activities of life are spiritual,” she said. Many shut-ins were remembered and she closed in prayer.
Members answered roll call by telling something they plan to undertake to improve themselves this year.
The club creed and the Pledge of Allegiance were recited. The secretary and treasurer reports were read and approved and the good neighbor report was given.
Members will celebrate Achievement Day at Mason Hall for all Obion County FCE club members on Monday. Registration is from 10-10:30 a.m. The program speaker will be Pam Jones.
Needed repairs and a facelift have been given the bathrooms and repairs made to the community center building.
Come very talented ladies who work very hard on their craft began quilting at the center in January and often work through the month of April three days each week. They have completed 16 lap quilts. There was discussion and a list of who would be the recipients of these beautiful lap quilts.
Members discussed giving school supplies to the children and asked Bennie Patterson to purchase these items. In the next months, members will bring these items to the meetings.
Members discussed the trail of quilts which are painted on buildings and a motion was made and seconded to purchase one for the center.
Nancy Tankersley was in charge of the program about footcare from “Age Page” the National Institute on Aging. Members learned the importance of caring for their feet. There are many common problems members may encounter and they learned helpful things they can do as these things happen to their feet.
For recreation time, Charlotte Pierce and Mrs. Luton recited some readings that made members laugh.
