New Salem FCE Club meets
Posted: Wednesday, October 31, 2012 8:00 pm
New Salem FCE Club met recently in the home of Fona Holst of Dresden. Upon arriving, the ladies were dressed in unusual ways but tacky, to coincide with the month of Halloween.
To add to the seasonal activities, Ms. Holst used the theme, “Let’s have a tacky party.”
Agent Beverly Shelby was quite charming in her wide-brimmed straw hat, bandanna, over-alls and flowered blouse.
The hostess welcomed her guests wearing bibbed over-alls. Vice President Mary Elizabeth Bell chose to be late so she could make a grand entrance wearing her mis-matched shoes and a false face. Frances Clark wore a floral house dress that sported a wide, fancy ruffle at the bottom. But Mary Hazel Adams won the prize in her outdoor attire of knee-length sweat pants that met her red and blue-ringed socks, matched her bright red hat that she had a ruffle at the back and a wide brim in front and a red- and-white plaid blouse.
Following all the comments about everyone’s apparel, the hostess welcomed eleven members and agent Shelby.
Vice president Bell read the thought for the day, “Of all thing you wear, your expression is the most important.” — Unknown.
Sylvia Simmons brought the devotion, using the thought, “think about others, not yourself,” and Ms. Shelby led songs, “Quilting Party,” and “Whistle While You Work.” All read together the club creed.
Ruby Rogers called the roll as each member passed a bag of candy corn to their left and gave the number of prizes brought for a nursing home Bingo party.
Reminders were county council to will meet, Oct. 11; FCE conference will be held in Memphis, Nov. 12-14; each member is asked to bring teen-age gifts to be given to WE CARE at the Nov. meeting.
Agent Shelby brought the program and gave helpful information on communication and tips for protecting yourself.
Our adjournment thought was “In general, my children refuse to eat anything that hasn’t danced on television.” — Erma Bombeck
The hostess provided prizes for contests and served delicious refreshments.
The Nov. 2 meeting will be held in the home of Ruby Rogers at 1:30 p.m.
