Willow Springs FCE
The Willow Springs F.C.E. met Jan. 19 at De Soto Baptist Church. Dorothy Nalley was hostess. Leona Robinson helped.
The tables were decorated in a red and white theme with angels, teddy bears and decorative candles.
The F.C.E. creed was read in unison.
Jean Epperson gave the table grace. A potluck luncheon was served. Seven members were present for lunch with Rosemary McAninch joining the group for dessert.
The drawing for the "pigs" took place. Laura Long won both "pigs," brought by ElFreeda Payton and Georgene Paxton. One was a floral wall arrangement and the other were bathroom boxes to hold toiletry items.
Nalley read the minutes of December. A correction was made on the price of the recipe book the Johnson County Extension Council is selling. The cost is $15 not $9. It is a fund-raiser for the council.
Nalley gave the lesson on history about former legislator Bob Dole and the Dole Institute at Kansas University and how people in his hometown of Russell contributed to it. The stained glass American flag at the center is the largest one of the flags across America.
Roll call was "Resolution for the New Year I Should Have Made or Did." Total hours were 36. The new club books were filled out with no meetings in July and August.
Club members voted to change the meeting day to the third Friday of the month. Former members used to meet on the third Friday when the club was formed more than 90 years ago.
The next meeting will be Feb. 17 with Georgeanna Taylor as hostess. Rosemary McAninch will give the lesson on "You Want Me to What?"
Anyone in the community is welcome to attend the meetings. A lesson is presented at every meeting, which comes from the Kansas State University. The headquarters are located in Kentucky.
