President Frances Allen welcomed 18 women members, six men members, four visitors and Obion County University of Tennessee Extension agent Benita Giffin.
After recitation of the club creed and the Pledge of Allegiance, Mrs. Allen read the thought for the day. “A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it.”
Roll call was answered with members naming their favorite June activity.
Mrs. Luton’s devotional was about Fathers Day. Shut-ins were remembered and she closed in prayer.
The secretary’s and treasurer’s reports were read and approved.

Mrs. Giffin’s program included the group choosing how many judges to use for the canning department at the Obion County Fair. Preparation for Fashion Revue will be held on Monday at the Obion County Farm Bureau Building in Union City beginning at 1 p.m.
