The Farmer Farmerette Club held their monthly meeting at the home of Jeannie and Herman Smith Thursday evening, May 7 at 6 p.m. A carry-in ham and bean supper was served before the meeting.
There were four guests present; Mike and Sharon Lewton and also Mrs. Sheryl McNiff, who is daughter of club member Pauline Oberman and Mrs. McNiff’s daughter Janet.
President Kay Reading called the meeting to order with the pledge to the American flag led by Jeannie Smith, who also read for the devotion an article, “The girl with Golden Hair” by Eva Unga from “Chicken Soup for the Christian Family.”
Roll call for the month was answered by Clara Shaver, Pauline Keithley, Keri Bradford, Pauline Oberman, Jeannie Smith, Claudine Lybarger, and Kay Reading with each telling a vacation memory and showing souvenirs.
Song leader Pauline Oberman led the group in singing, “Let There Be Peach On Earth.”
Guest speaker for the evening was Mike Lewton, pastor of the Curryville Presbyterian Church. He gave a most interesting talk on his trips to areas affected by hurricanes and other disasters.
It makes us very thankful that so far the area all of us live in is safe. He stated that one of the pests they had to contend with were noseeums which are smaller and worse than gnats.
Shaver read the treasurer’s report and also the secretary’s report in lieu of Wanda Hanson, who was unable to attend.
All members received Mother’s gifts from their secret pals and cards from other members.
Oberman gave each a note pad for the fridge and some candy and Keithley gave each a lilac sachet pack.
The mystery gift donated by Lybarger was won by Shaver.
Next month’s meeting will be on Thursday evening, June 4 at the Laddonia Christian Church.
