New Salem FCE Club met recently at Richie and Reggie’s Restaurant with 11 members and agent Beverly Shelby present.
Due to the absences of Bettie Higgs and Mary Elizabeth Bell, the president and vice president, Sylvia Simmons were in charge of business. She opened the meeting with the thought, “One of the most difficult things to give away is kindess — it’s usually returned.” — Voice of Health.
Devotion leader Fonda Halot shared an interesting devotional from John 5:30-32; she used the thought, “God Himself can’t please everyone.”
Mrs. Shelby led in singing, “Tennessee Waltz,” and all read together, the club creed.
Secretary Ruby Rogers read the minutes and called the roll as each one answered the question, “What is your way to spend Labor Day?”
The general conclusion was that by the end of the summer, Labor Day for FCE is a “rest day.”
Reminders and up-coming events were county council fall tour will be Sept. 27, when they will meet at Garden Pleasure Tea Room for lunch and then go on to the pumpkin patch field day at the U.T. Extension Center in Jackson; New Salem Club will be in charge of devotion, music and song leader for the county council meeting on Oct. 11; club officers lists for 2013 are due to the extension office by Oct. 1. Mrs. Shelby held a program on canning and freezing and gave special tips to newer methods.
The adjourning thought was “Cast your bread upon the waters for after many days you will find it again,” Eccleisiasties 11:1. Following adjournment, everyone enjoyed fresh peach cobbler and ice cream, provided by the hostess, Frances Clark.
Fonda Halet will host the Oct. 1 meeting at 1:30 p.m.
