The monthly meeting of the Farmer Farmerette Club was held on Thursday, Oct. 10 in the social room at Leisure Manor in Laddonia. Claudine Lybarger served as hostess.
The room was decorated with Halloween centerpieces and colors of autumn. A delicious meal was served by the hostess before the meeting got under way with Ginger Mangan saying grace.
President Kay Reading called the meeting to order and led those present saying the pledge to the American flag. This month’s roll call was the question “what is your favorite season?” and was answered by Ginger Mangan, Pauline Oberman, Claudine Lybarger, Jeannie Smith, Wanda Hanson, Clara Shaver, Pauline Keithley, Elsie Lybarger, Kay Reading and Keri Bradford. Two guests were present, Travis and Cheryl Lybarger.
Cheryl Lybarger read Psalm 21 as the devotional. Song leader Oberman, led the group in singing “Let There Be Peace On Earth.”
Travis Lybarger gave a most interesting, as well as educational, talk on the Laddonia ethanol plant and showed the different stages the corn goes through before becoming ethanol. He stated it takes one bushel of corn to produce 2.6 gallons of ethanol. There are 26 ethanol plants in the United States.
Hanson read the secretary’s report and Shaver the treasurer’s report.
The mystery prize, donated by Oberman, was won by Mangan. Keithley, Smith and Claudine Lybarger received birthday gifts from their secret pals and several others received Halloween gifts from their secret pals.
Elsie Lybarger had the game and everyone won a prize, which included hanging towels she had made. Oberman gave each person present a bag of candy and Claudine Lybarger gave them a miniature tea cup with a rose inside.
Next month’s meeting, which will include finalizing plans for the annual Thanksgiving carry-in supper, will be held at the home of Paul and Wanda Hanson, with Wanda as hostess.
