The Mason Hall Family and Community Education Club met recently at the community center, which was decorated for spring.
Mary Louise Davis and Jeanette Proctor served as hostesses.
President Frances Allen welcomed 15 women, five men members, one visitor and Obion County University of Tennessee Extension agent Benita Giffin.
After recitation of the club creed and Pledge of Allegiance, a moment of silence was held in memory of Irene Galloway. She was a very dear member of the club and community and will be greatly missed, a spokesman said. Mrs. Allen read the thought for the day, “When a shower brings a rainbow, we hardly remember getting wet.”
Roll call was answered by members naming their favorite umbrella. The majority answered, “The one that works!”
Betty Luton’s devotional was titled, “If the Lord is near.” She read Philipians 4:6 and told members, “Prayer is not something we have to do. It is something we get to do.” Many people were remembered and lifted up in prayer.
Secretary and treasurer reports were read and approved.
Social services for Mason Hall included the family of Mrs. Galloway.
Achievement Day was held on March 13 at the center. The dress revue was also held on that day. It was the first time the events were held together. Many awards were given. “We all had a great time and would like to continue having these two events together,” a spokesman said.
Mrs. Allen reported on cultural arts, which was held at the Obion County Farm Bureau building on April 1. There was a great turnout. Many ribbons were given. Later that day, the Obion County Council met. Mrs. Allen, Jean Malone, Misty Griffin and Mary Louise Davis attended from Mason Hall. Many projects and upcoming events were discussed.
Good Neighbor reports were collected.
Mrs. Giffin spoke on vegetable container growing. Many helpful tips on this unique gardening style were shared.
The club meets the first Thursday of each month. Visitors and new members are always welcome.
