New Salem FCE Club recently held its meeting at Richee and Reggis’s Restaurant in Dresden with Evonne Shipher and Norma Goad, as co-hostesses.
Fifteen members attended.
President Bettie Higgs opened the meeting and read the “thought for the day”: “Character may be manifested in great moments but it is made in the small ones.” — Phillip Brooks.
She brought devotional thoughts on power, “people don’t realize the power they have unless they strive to use it.”
Marjorie Simmons led the songs, “Faith of our Fathers,” and “You Are My Sunshine,” and all read the club creed in unison. Anniversaries of Mary Hazel Adams and Evonne Shapher were recognized.
Secretary Ruby Rogers called the roll and each one answered with a funny wedding moment she experienced or someone else’s and read the minutes from the last meeting.
Frances Clark gave the treasurer’s report in the absence of Sylvia Simmons and collected state and national dues.
Business also included a review of the May meeting with hostess, Lillian Stokes, and program given by Bettie High on “What’s all the hype about social media?”
Our June unfinished and new business was creative writing entries are due, region vice president for public library on July 1; county council meeting will be July 12; everyone is asked to bring care items of school supplies to the July meeting. Ideas were discussed for the August outing with a final decision to be made in July.
Mary Elizabeth Bell, program leader, shared information from programs, “Canning Conundrums,” and “Made for the USA,” and evaluations were made by each member.
Our adjourning thought was, “My grandfather once told me that there are two kinds of people, those who do the work and those who take the credit.
“He told me try to be in the first group. There was less competition there.” — Indira Gandhi.
Everyone enjoyed a time of games, prizes and delicious refreshments, provided by the hostess.
The hostess for the July meeting will be Mary E. Bell on July 6 at 1:30 p.m. Published in The WCP 6.14.12
