Posted: Tuesday, May 15, 2012 8:00 pm
The Mason Hall Family and Community Education Club met recently at the community center, with hostesses Mary L. Davis and Jeanette Proctor. The center was decorated in colorful flowers.
President Frances Allen welcomed 17 women members, five men members, three visitors and Obion County University of Tennessee Extension agent Benita Giffin.
Mrs. Allen read the thought for the day, “My mom is a never ending song in my heart of comfort, happiness and being. I may sometimes forget the words, but I will always remember the tune.” Roll call asked members to share a school picture from their youth for members to guess who they were.
Betty Luton’s devotional was about Mother’s Day and all the members’ precious memories. Shut-ins were remembered. As World Day of Prayer was being observed, the members held hands and Mrs. Luton closed in prayer.
Communications included an inquiry about a quilting job and thank-you notes from the “T-Boy” Pierce, Ruth Roden and Sanford families.
Social services for Kenton included the Wilson, Zaricor and Powell family and in Mason Hall the Pierce family.
A quilt block was chosen and the form will be mailed.
It was decided the group would have a work day on May 24 to make things for the state convention.
The club has three entries and may have one more for creative writing.
Canners are encouraged to get busy. Mason Hall FCE members will be the superintendents for the canning department at the Obion County Fair. The special category for 2012 will be one pint each of three different fruits in a decorative container.
Members reported for the Good Neighbor Report.
Mrs. Giffin’s program was from “Age Page: the National Institute on Aging” and was about digestive health. She addressed the causes and treatments doctors approve if tests show no disease or blockage.
Irene Galloway provided a reading about planting a garden.
