Witches invade Farmer Farmerette Club

Posted on Wednesday, October 7, 2015 at 11:47 am

A group of eight black-clothed witches flew to the home of Kay Reading on Thursday evening, October 1 at 5 p.m. for the Farmer Farmerette’s monthly meeting. In spite of the cold weather they stated they had a safe trip.
President Kay Reading led the pledge to the American flag and afterwards said grace before a delicious carry-in meal.
The roll call for the month was to state a superstition and was answered by Ginger Mangan, Wanda Hanson, Keri Bradford, Pauline Oberman, Clara Shaver, Pauline Keithley, Kay Reading, Claudine Lybarger, and Jeannie Smith.
The treasurer’s report was read by Clara Shaver and Wanda Hanson read the secretary’s report. The mystery prize donated by Mangan was won by Reading.
The devotional read by Reading was “Strength for daily needs” from “Harvest of Faith.”
Reading had the program, which was on the Salem witch hunt and trials, she really got into it with sound affects and a little reenacting. It made us modern day witches glad that we were safe from the horror and fear those poor persons had to endure.
Jeannie Smith, Claudine Lybarger, and Pauline Keithley received birthday gifts from their secret pals as well as Halloween cards and gifts. Lybarger had the game and everyone won a prize.
Keithley and Oberman gave each member some candy.
Next month’s meeting will be at the home of Clara Shaver on November 5 at 5 p.m.
