After a two month winter break, the Farmer Farmette Club held its first meeting of 2013 Friday, March 8 at the home of Keri Bradford with Kay Reading as hostess.
A delicious meal was served at noon by the hostess. Members were all glad to see each other and catch up on what each did during the break. All reported having a wonderful holiday season but would be glad to see the last of the snow and cold weather.
President Reading called the meeting to order and led the group in the pledge to the American flag. She also read two articles for the “Devotional Easter Prayer” and “Easter Promise,” which was about Good Friday. The group also recited The Lord’s Prayer in unison.
Roll call was ideas for the year; a lot of interesting ideas were put on the table and answered by Elsie Lybarger, Claudine Lybarger, Clara Shaver, Pauline Keithley, Keri Bradford, Pauline Oberman, Jeannie Smith, Wanda Hanson, and Kay Reading. All agreed it would be hard to top 2012 for the entertainment they enjoyed.
Oberman, song leader, led the singing of Billy Boy. The mysterday gift, donated by Bradford, was won by Hanson. Members received St. Patrick’s Day cards and gifts as well as Easter cards and gifts from their secret pals.
Shaver read the treasurer’s report and Hanson gave the secertary’s report. She also read a poem, The Drug Run, written by Connie Malloy.
Get well cards were signed and sent to Stanley Hanson and Tom Mangan who are both recovering from recent surgery. The group wishes them both a speedy recovery.
Plans were made and finalized for the club’s annual Easter carry-in supper which will be held on Palm Sunday, March 24 at 6 p.m. in the fellowship hall of the Curryville Presbyterian Church.
The next meeting will be held on Thursday, April 4 at 6 p.m. in the home of Clara Shaver.
