Mason Hall FCE meets
Posted: Monday, April 23, 2012 8:00 pm
The Mason Hall Family and Community Education Club met recently at the community center with hostesses Charlotte Pierce and Pat Hurt.
The center was decorated with signs of Easter.
President Frances Allen welcomed 18 women members; five men members; two visitors — Lilly McCaig and old friend Wilburn Yates of Jackson; and Obion County University of Tennessee Extension agent Benita Giffin.
Frances read the thought for the day “Other people’s faults are like bees — if we don’t see them, they can’t harm us.”
Roll call was answered with members naming their favorite pasttime or hobby.
Betty Luton’s devotional was about Easter. Her biblical reference was from 2 Timothy 1:7. She presented a reading about Mary Magdalene and read a story from Guideposts about Easter and how God was in charge of the guest list. Shut-ins were remembered and she closed in prayer.
Members reported for the Good Neighbor Report.
Social services for the previous month were provided for the Watkins family of Kenton and the Janette Sanford and Ruth Roden families of Mason Hall.
Linda Holder will be in charge of getting the quilt block from the Trail of Quilts.
The Cultural Arts annual competition, held on April 2, had 84 entries. The Mason Hall club had six red ribbons, seven blue ribbons and one yellow ribbon. Red and blue will go to mini conference on July 27.
Fashion revue will be at the Obion County Farm Bureau in Union City on June 18.
Mrs. Giffin’s program was from “Age Page National Institute on Aging” and was about hearing loss, in particular presbycusis and tinnitus. She said loud noise is the most common cause of hearing loss. Ear wax or fluid build up can also block sounds. A punctured eardrum or one damaged by infection can cause hearing loss, too. Those people who have problems should talk to their doctors and find out what devices can help.
The club adjourned for lunch. After the meal was completed, they were given news of bad weather headed their way and Mrs. Allen dismissed them so that they might get home safely.
The club meets the first Thursday of each month. Visitors and new members are welcome.
