FCEC News 4-21
Completing monthly secretarial duties for the FCE Clubs is an important duty. Recently honored for their dedication are, from left, Irene Fuston, Midway; Betty Whitlock, Lucky-Northside; Lori Yates, Vinsons Crossroads; Donna Dunlap, Bonner and Phyllis Hillis, Hickory Creek.

The Lucky Northside FCEC met on March 23 for its regular monthly session in the Magnolia Room. President Sandra Griffith called the meeting to order and welcomed Wilma Davenport as guest.
Chaplain Irene Fuston’s devotional consisted of a reading entitled “Spring Makes All Things New,” quoting Psalms 96:1, and leading the group in prayer. The Pledge of Allegiance was recited in unison.
Roll call was answered by each person present estimating how many species of butterflies there are in the United States and/or the world. Secretary Betty Whitlock read the minutes of the February meeting which were approved as read. No financial report was given due to the absence of Treasurer Linda Schlimmer who is recovering from hip surgery.
In the area of old business it was reported that the County Council had voted to up the prize money for scrapbook competition as follows: first, $70; second, $50; third, $30 and $25 for participation.
In new business, plans were finalized for a visit with the residents of McMinnville Boarding Home. Whitlock and Griffith will bake cakes, Paula Barnes will purchase individual bottled waters, and Fuston will make hot fudge sauce, purchase ice cream, and trimmings for making hot fudge cake for the residents.
A&R Day was discussed and the Bonner Club will host the event by providing door prizes and name tags. It will be held at the Midway Community Center with Midway to do the food. There are plans also for a collection of butterfly pins to be on display.
The bake sale will be May 5 and the schedule is as follows: Hickory Creek will set up and work from 8 – 11 a.m.; Midway will work from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.; and Bonner will work from 2 p.m. until sold out.
Fuston made a motion to donate $25 to the 4-H program, with a second from Whitlock and the motion carried without opposition. The meeting was adjourned and those wishing to do so meet at Foutch’s Restaurant for lunch.
The next meeting will be held on April 27 in the 4-H Room.
