The Farmer Farmerette Club met at the home of Kay Reading on Saturday, July 1 for their meeting. Kay had her home decorated in the holiday theme and all six members who attended and one guest wore red, white, and blue. President Reading led the group in the pledge to the American flag and also offered grace before a delicious carry-in meal.
Roll call for the month was to tell a short history about an American monument and was answered by Pauline Oberman, Claudine Lybarger, Jeannie Smith, Clara Shaver, Kay Reading, and Wanda Hanson.
Norma Shaw, who was this month’s guest, gave an interesting talk on the V.F.W. Ladies Auxiliary. She stated that it was chartered in 1946 and moved to its present home in 1991. They visit the veterans home once a month to play bingo at .50 cents a game. The money received from the sale of the V.F.W. Poppies is split between the VA home, the VA hospital, and the veterans. They do so much for our veterans throughout the year in other causes.
President Reading read for the devotional Galatians 13:18 and also an article entitled “It is the shoulder.” Song leader Oberman led the singing of “America the Beautiful.”
Shaver gave the Treasurer’s Report and Smith read the Secretary’s Report.
The mystery prize, donated by Ginger Mangan, was won by Smith. Most members received gifts and cards from their secret pals. Bingo was played and everyone won a prize.
The August meeting will be held in the Curryville Presbyterian Fellowship Hall on August 5.
