The Bonner FCE Club met on Aug. 6 at the Dogwood Room on Locust Street. President Teresa Priestley called us to order, and we welcomed a special visitor from the Midway Club, Sharon Bennett.
Janice Boyd, Bonner FCE chaplain, shared an inspirational reading from the book, “Grace, Hope and Love.” She then led a short prayer followed by the group reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. Nine attending members answered roll call by giving the person on their right, a heartfelt compliment.
Secretary Brenda Mitchell read the minutes from the last meeting, and these were approved. Treasurer Linda Nixon read the financial report.
Vice president Lisa Keener took over the reins of leadership. Members were reminded to save plastic bottle caps for recycling, as well as pull tabs rings.
Donna Dunlap was the club’s top reader this past month, having read “Skipping Christmas” by John Grisham, “The Weekenders” by Mary Kay Andrews, and a book entitled “Savannah’s Breeze.” Mary Mann read “A Million Little Things,” by Susan Mallery. Mitchell rounded out the reading report with her two books.
Club members will be turning in money to go to the Cultural Arts Fashion and Review, and plans were made for the group’s participation in the Warren County A&L Fair in September. The Bonner club will be hosting the Country Store on Sept 10.
Each club member was encouraged to enter at least five craft items or baked goods for judging.
The next meeting of the Bonner FCE Club will be Sept. 3 at the Gondola Restaurant.
