Pine Ridge Extension discuss importance of list-making

Pine Ridge Extension Homemakers met Feb. 25 at First Presbyterian Church in Seymour.

The meeting was a combined January-February meeting as the January meeting was cancelled because of weather conditions.

Co-hostesses Aryss Beebe and Marjorie Patman served sandwiches, veggie straws and grapes to 11 members and one guest. Favors were chocolate candies.

Sandi Hall gave the lesson on “Who Gets Grandma’s Yellow Pie Plate?” She talked about the importance of thinking ahead and encouraged making lists of items that family members would like to have and also writing down the stories behind special objects.

Club members sang “Happy Anniversary” as the club was founded 67 years ago in January 1947.

Jackson County clubs are now members of Bedford District, Indiana Extension Homemakers, and the district spring meeting will be conducted March 12 in New Albany. Three members plan to attend.

Aryss Beebe and Carol Wait gave a reading on “Rules of Chocolate.” A table game was played with chocolate kisses used as markers.

Carolyn Krieger and Mary Miller won hostess prizes.

The next meeting will be at 7 p.m. March. 25 at First Presbyterian Church with Carol Wait as hostess.
