FCE County Council meets
Hickory Creek FCE member Cassy Hillis shared her creative angel wings made from songbooks at the County Council meeting.

The Warren County FCE County Council met for its quarterly meeting recently in the Magnolia Room.  President Frances Hobbs called the meeting to order. Chaplain Phyllis Hillis led the thought of the day which was “Honesty is the best policy.” Members stood and recited the Pledge of Allegiance. 
Twenty-eight members responded to roll call with breakdown as follows:  Bonner, 6; Hickory Creek, 8; Lucky-Northside, 2; Northside Homemakers, 1; Midway, 4 and Vinson Crossroads, 6, along with the Extension agent. 
The minutes for the June quarterly meeting were read by secretary Irene Fuston, and were approved.
The financial report was given by treasurer Sandra Griffith and she gave everyone a quarterly financial report.
The old business discussed included regional cultural arts/fashion review competition. Naomi Smith got second for her dress entry, Crystal Davis received first in photography, Sue Shetley a second for her basket and Frances Hobbs received third on her rug weaving. The photography and basket entries will be entered on the state level in November.
County agent Hilda Lytle handed out membership cards to club presidents. Hobbs and Griffith volunteered to help with the yearbook committee. The Tennessee Association of Family and Community Education (TAFCE) state conference will be held in Clarksville, with six members planning to attend.
Santa’s Workshop will be on Dec. 7 starting at 9 a.m. with brunch, business meeting and craft workshop to follow. Members have the option to bring brunch food item, canned goods for the food bank, and a toy for the rescue squad. Each club is to bring several baked food items that will be auctioned with proceeds going to county council projects. 
Lytle gave information about programs other counties' Family and Community Education Clubs are having and encouraged members to attend as many as possible. With no further business, the county council meeting was adjourned and members participated in the quarterly grab bag event. 
Hickory Creek was in charge of the activity, with Cassy Hillis demonstrating how to make an angel wing wall hanging from songbooks, and Brenda Clark demonstrating how to make a one-hour baby quilt. 
Following the grab bag event, the Bonner FCE Club prepared a meal of soup/chili, pimiento cheese sandwiches, assorted desserts and drinks. 
The next FCE quarterly county council meeting will be held on Dec. 7 at the Warren County Administrative building.
