Crystal FCE Club meets
Posted: Wednesday, November 28, 2012 8:00 pm
Crystal Family and Community Education Club met recently at the Obion County Museum for its regular meeting.
Mary Lois Owens was hostess for the day and she presented the devotional. The subject of her inspiring devotional was “Another Look at the 23rd Psalms.” This psalm offers many solutions to life’s problems. It provides supply, refreshment, healing, guidance, purpose, testing, protection, faithfulness, hope, consecration, abundance, blessing, security and eternity.
It was reported the club had purchased and delivered fruit for the Child Development Center at Lake Road School. Diane Johnson invited the club to have its Christmas meeting at her home. Everyone is to bring potluck. This year members are asked to give a gift of $5 for Hometown Walk of Hope.
The officers for 2013 were announced and include president Nadine Killion, vice president Nita Simpson, secretary Alice Fennel, treasurer Jane Fisher, community service chairman June Bennett and scrapbook chairman Mary Dunavant.
It was reported that 2,509 people attended the Fall Festival in Milan, where several Obion County FCE members exhibited their crafts and quilting. There were 20 aprons from the county entered in the District Apron Event held in Jackson. There was a discussion about preparing an apron exhibit for the Obion County Public Library. The most current date available will be May 2014. The annual luncheon sponsored by the Baptist Hospital will be held on Dec. 5 at 11 a.m. Leadership Day is to be held Jan 17 in Jackson.
Obion County University of Tennessee Extension agent Benita Giffin presented the program. She distributed literature about how to read a food label and what to watch for if someone has a sugar problem. She said the classes she provides during the year offer many more suggestions to follow. The best rule is to count carbs and eat small portions for three meals and three snacks a day.
She also discussed some things to do to get a good night’s sleep. She said to be sure and watch for hidden caffeine in food and drink and to practice good sleep hygiene and consult a doctor if the problem continues.
Mrs. Owens served a very enjoyable snack before Mrs. Simpson instructed a craft session on the construction of an angel.
There were 30 items collected for the school donation project.
