The Farmer Farmerette Club met at the home of Kay Reading for their monthly meeting Saturday, April 5 at 11 a.m. President Kay Reading led the pledge to the American flag and also said “grace” before a carry-in lunch was served.
Roll call for the month was answered by Ginger Mangan, Claudine Lybarger, Kerri Reading, Pauline Oberman, Jeannie Smith, Clara Shaver, and Kay Reading with each telling an April Fool’s joke.
For the devotional, Reading read “Let not your heart be troubled” and “Anyway” which reminds us not to worry that God will take care of us.
Oberman led the singing of “Easter Parade.” While singing it, we came across a word in the verse that goes “the photographers will snap us and you’ll find that your …….” We had to look up the word for none of us knew the meaning though we grew up singing and hearing it sung.
Smith read the minutes from the last meeting and Shaver gave the treasurer’s report. The mystery gift donated by Reading was won by Lybarger and most members received cards and gifts from their secret pals. Oberman gave a bag of candy to everyone.
Reading had an interesting game of scrambled letters that took a while to figure out, though it was fun.
Each person won a prize.
Plans for the annual Easter carry-in dinner were finalized and it was held on Palm Sunday, April 9 in the Curryville Presbyterian Church. Twenty-five friends and family members joined club members for an enjoyable evening of fellowship and good food.
