Midway FCEC met March 7 at the Midway CIC Center for their monthly gathering, with hostesses Brenda Blocker, Sue Adcock and Barbara Corun, and president Dian Greene welcoming guests Carol Clark and Samantha Bell.
Devotional leader Paula Barnes presented the thought of the day, “The Best Day to Celebrate, and Betty Whitlock led the Pledge of Allegiance. Roll call was answered with attendees naming a favorite flowering tree by the 17 members and guests present. Secretary Irene Fuston read the minutes from the previous meeting, and treasurer Mary Rubley gave the financial report.
Members donated hygiene items for the Warren County Middle School, as well as items to the Child Advocacy Center. We also received a thank you card from them. The club voted to make a monetary donation to the 4-H Baking Contest.
Jean Smith displayed an Easter craft, and Fuston displayed a quilt block. Dale McDaniel, Sue Adcock and Fuston attended the quilt workshop recently. Our vice president shared the many uses of three common household items, Dawn dish detergent, baking soda and vinegar.
The menu was finalized for our countywide annual visitation. Special projects leader Sharon Bennett and Adcock attended the leader training in February. Barnes encouraged everyone to participate in Reading Across America next year.
The hostesses decorated the tables in a St. Patrick’s Day theme, using shamrock plants. Everyone enjoyed the soups, sandwiches and desserts.
