Posted: Monday, February 18, 2013 8:00 pm
The Mason Hall Family and Community Education Club met recently at the community center, which had been decorated for Valentine’s Day.
Kathy Page and Sarah Allen served as hostesses.
President Frances Allen welcomed 14 women members, four men members and two visitors. Thoughts were with Obion County University of Tennessee Extension Service agent Benita Giffin, who was unable to attend due to an illness. The members extended a special welcome to Pat Hurt, who has been unable to attend recently.
After recitation of the club creed and Pledge of Allegiance, Mrs. Allen read the thought for the day, “Love isn’t love until you give it away.” Roll call was answered with members naming their first sweetheart.
Betty Luton’s devotional was a reading titled “Sweetheart” about how encouragement and being friendly is a channel God can reach. Another reading, “Changes and Choices,” told how life can be filled with good choices. Many of the sick were remembered and she closed with prayer for those mentioned.
The secretary’s and treasurer’s reports were read and approved. There were no social service reports made for the previous month.
Bennie Patterson reported on Leadership Day in Jackson. She, Jean Malone and Mrs. Allen attended. Mrs. Allen and Mrs. Malone told about January’s Obion County FCE council meeting, which was held at the Obion County Museum in Union City. Olivia Gill was chosen to represent the club at the Obion County Fair.
Jean Malone read a funny “Redneck” Valentine poem. Good neighbor reports were given before the meeting adjourned.
