Crystal FCE meets
Posted: Friday, March 1, 2013 8:00 pm
The Crystal Family and Community Education Club held its February meeting at the Obion County Museum with 16 members present. To celebrate Valentine’s Day, the roll was answered with the name of a member’s first sweetheart. There were some very interesting stories given with the responses.
Mary Dunavant gave the devotional for the day, reminding the membership of some Valentine Day facts and a “list of the secrets to happiness.” The secrets were as follows: forget, apologize, avoid mistakes, listen, keep your temper, shoulder blame, make the best of things, maintain high standards, think first and then act, put needs of others first and forgive.
President Nadine Killion reminded the group of the upcoming achievement day on March 18. This year the county dress revue will be held that afternoon, after achievement awards are given that morning. The luncheon meeting will be at the Mason Hall Community Center beginning at 10:30 a.m. All attending are to bring a potluck dish.
Jane Fisher announced an advanced basket weavers workshop, led by Brenda Winstead, was be held at the Obion County Farm Bureau Building on Feb. 25-26. The group was reminded that the Cultural Arts Day will be April 1, followed by a county council meeting. Tamera Hall will be a guest speaker for the March meeting.
Mrs. Fisher presented the program entitled “Recipes for the Crock-Pot.” She discussed some of the benefits for using a crock-pot and distributed some recipes which had been prepared by Obion County University of Tennessee Extension Service agent Benita Giffin. She also passed out the February Health News Letter with suggestions as to ways to stay healthy during the flu season.
After Mrs. Dunavant, hostess, served a delicious snack, the group adjourned to make a yo-yo bird to use in spring decorations about the house. There were 16 items collected for exceptional children in the local schools.
